Reason 27501 to love New England: Apple Picking Season.
This morning this little family of four(!!) went apple picking at our local u-pick farm. Finn ran into the first apple row we came to and picked the biggest apple he could see. Then he sat down and started to eat it. He almost ate the whole apple. It was about the size of his own head, so I’d say there’s some pride in that. We thought he’d overdone it with the apple, until he sat down in the Asian pear row and started over.
One huge bag of Cortland apples, a tummy ache and a screaming ten-week old later, Apple Picking 2014 is officially complete.
