Apples, Cider and Donuts....Oh My!!

Today was Lovebug's FIRST field trip!  To the Apple Orchard!

Lovebug got to ride the bus for the very first time and was super excited! Something her big sister, Peanut is very jealous about since she is in 2nd grade and has not yet had a ride on a school bus. She was a little worried at first that there weren't any seat belts, but she soon realized that she liked that!  I had a hard time getting her to stay seated.  She also asked the bus driver to turn the air on when we were headed home.  Everyone got a good laugh out of that one!

On our way to the Orchard!

The first thing the kids did when we got there was learned about how the apples grow.  Then the got to get on a wagon ride and go out into the orchard and pick apples and pumpkins.  Of course D had to show it's ugly head and we ended up with a low bg of 55 on the wagon ride. Good thing Dexie alerted me and good thing I came prepared! By the time we got done picking the apples Lovebug was feeling better.

She was very proud of her apple!

Then it was off to the pumpkin patch to get a couple pumpkins.  She didn't like the pumpkin picking so much. "Mommy the pumpkins are too dirty"  is what I heard and a little whining because I wanted to take her picture.

The "dirty" pumpkin she didn't want to touch.

After apple and pumpkin picking we headed back for some yummy cider and donuts.


The rest of the time the kids got to enjoy themselves with the different activities they had around the orchard.  This place seriously has a TON for the kids to do.  Lovebug got to see chickens, goats, bunnies and a "cow" they called Reba.  She enjoyed the goats because they kept "talking" to her.  She thought the bunnies were cute too.  A nice temper tantrum ensued when I decided she needed to move onto other things besides the bunnies. (I"m pretty sure she would have stayed there the rest of the time.  It wasn't a pretty site.

Lovebug also enjoyed playing in a GIGANTIC sand box.

This is only half of the gigantic sandbox!

They really had so much there to do that we didn't have time to get to all of it.
Before we took off we got all the kids together for a group picture and they were actually cooperative!

Overall it was a beautiful day for a trip to the orchard and Lovebug and I had a good time together. :)

Looks like a blast Heather. I remember taking Joe to the apple orchard in K-garten. Not nearly as large with so many things to do as yours though.

Sorry about the low...(((HUGS))). Sounds like you guys managed it well.

Lovely! We go pumpkin picking with Lila next week - that group shot is a great idea! I'll have to give it a try.
