Pickin'








As the cool Fall air creeps in on us, I find that it also gives us a little bit of a nudge to get some Fall activities accomplished before it's over~which we all know will be sooner then later. On that note M Apples..season pickin' time here! So we packed em' all up, and off we went, to the nearby Apple Orchard! The excursion started off with a mini train ride to take us back to the orchard...so with a few toots from the train whistle, and a couple clangs of it's bell we rode to the orchard and then had a spiel about some apples and where others were to find.
We gathered up our large basket and a picken' we went! Kids had a great time, trying to reach and well also having a helping hand/shoulders from Daddy to get those plump juicy ones at the very top. It's a yearly event for us to pick and gather Apples and it's a day we cherish as a family. And of course...what would an Orchard be without some Fall Pumpkins to sit on!






















What a patch of Pumpkins for our" Pumpkins "to enjoy!

Great pictures! I used to go to apple orchards when I was younger but we haven't really done that with our kids. They don't grow apples here in Ketchikan though.
