Apple Pickin' Time

Apples at Vertacnik Orchard

Yes, my dears, it is now the time of year when every mama in the blogosphere must wax poetically about the family apple pickin' outing.

I'm too busy chewing to add much, but two notable aspects of this years trip include:

  1. The Kid is now old enough to pick his own apples.
  2. The Kid is now old enough to want to spike the apples he picks into the basket.

The words of the day were "easy" and "gentle", but we left with a reasonably unbruised bucket'o'apples, all the same.
