Field Trip-Apple Picking

We were unable to pick apples at our favorite orchard this year because their crop had extensive frost and insect damage 😦 Though very sad, we still wanted apples so we headed to our second favorite apple orchard which was having a big Labor Day weekend celebration.

We picked some apples:

Looked at the big ole trees,

and visited some farm animals.

We also had some awesome apple cider donuts and saw the bees in the “honey hut”, as well as the door to the cheese room.

At the end of the petting zoo there was an area they had set aside and called a “fairy village”.  Basically the kids were supposed to build houses for the fairies that lived there.  It was cute and the kids loved it…yes even the boy and the nearly 17yo! 

Here are some of their creations;  those of M, K and B respectively
