Apple Pickin'

Today, I took the boys apple picking at a local farm.

We met up with a few other home school families and enjoyed a wonderful, fun-filled day!!! (Thanks Kate for planning our outing! We had a BLAST!!!)

We started out the day with a tour of the farm.


They first took us to see several bee hives and we got to watch the bee's make honey. Very COOL!

Then we jumped on a hayride which took us to the apple orchards. We each picked a bag of apples (eating a few along the way)!

Corban and Riley had a great time finding the apples and then pulling them off the trees. After we picked our apples, we headed over to see some animals. We saw rabbits, chickens, goats, and three baby pigs that were absolutely adorable. We ended our time with a picnic lunch!

What a great day!
Now...I'm off to bake something yummy with all those apples!!
