Apple Picking Time!

Chickens!
Waiting for Daddy to come with feed...

Contemplating the cup of feed....
That goat behind William looks very interested in the cup!
The big highlight of the day!!
Bye Guys! I'm gonna go plow the back 40!
More chickens...
William made that chicken feed last a long time, and almost got his fingers pecked more than once by trying to feed it to them one grain at a time!
The baby calf...
He was SO soft and loveable! I could have sat there scratching him all day!
Picking his first apple!
Working our way down through the orchard...

In the tree with William...

Lots of apples to pick...
William "helped" by taking the apples from Daddy and then throwing them into the bag, bruising many...
Almost done...
This morning we got up nice and early and headed out to pick apples at Homestead Farm. It was a great morning, not too hot or buggy. William had a good time and though he wasn't really all that interested in the actual apple picking, he loved being outside and running around between the trees. We picked about 25 pounds of apples, so that should keep us busy for a while! I have a feeling I will be forced to make an apple pie tonight....and then forced to help eat it! Happy Fall everyone!

Looks like fun! I love fresh apples they are SOOOOOO much better than the mushy mealy ones from last year that they sell all summer :) Love the sweatshirt. If it's still in good shape when he out grows it, may I have it back for Tyler?

Totally! I think he will be done with it by next spring, so I will send it back to you in Sophie's b-day package.
