Apple Picking in the Orchard
Every year, we try to take a trip out to the U-Pick orchard. Fresh apples, carefully selected, picked, and purchased by our family seem to be an autumn family tradition for us.
Our first orchard trip was four states away when our oldest was a babe. We were living in New England and had found a nearby orchard. We strapped our newborn to my husband and trudged through the orchard, picking a handful of apples.
Since that time, our family has increased and our children have grown, but each year, we try to get out to an orchard and pick fresh apples.
Sometimes, we count the trip as a field trip. There are, after all, many educational opportunities to be seized during our time there. Including several informative and interactive signs.
This year, we just counted it as one fun family memory!
