Tuesday we met up with friends for the first apple picking trip of the season. We went to Bowman Orchards, mostly because they were one of the few places open, but also because we were all south that day and they have a really neat wooden playground.
This will be our third year of Bowman Orchard visits, though last year we only went once because we found Ellm's Farm which has a lot more for a two-year old.
MiniM.E. remembered everything about it (as usual) and insisted we first find the floppy eared goat.
Flashback, here she is two years ago with the same goat:
We had a great time at the playground. Since the first time we visited they added these pony tire swings and they are MiniM.E.'s favorite thing- she likes to have horsey fights where the two swings crash into each other.
We had to wait for everyone to arrive before we went apple picking. We drove into the orchard and MiniM.E. proceeded to pick exactly THREE apples before she insisted she was done. Fortunately, I convinced her to hang around by suggesting she eat an apple which took her approximately 20 minutes.
I managed to squeeze in a few extra minutes by finding this "hiding" apple and a few mini ones she was excited to pick:
After apple picking it was back to the playground for a picnic lunch and some more playground fun.
The best part of the day? This:
Our adorable budding photographers.
(MiniM.E. only managed a shot of our stomachs, which is definitely NOT making the blog!)
Thanks for a great day, girls!
