Afternoon in the Orchard

Isn't that so pretty?  I took the kids plum and apple picking yesterday afternoon.

Just joking, here's what our basket coming up from the orchard really looked like:

Our successful trip to the orchard (about 50 yards away) required 3 blankets, 3 stuffed animals, 2 balls, 1 toddler shirt (for the stuffed dolly), and...oh yeah, the kids, too.  So we piled it all in the laundry basket (not the kids), trekked to the orchard, laid the blankets out on the grass for baby/toddlers to relax on, played "bounce the balls in the extra blanket" while I picked fruit, and then piled it all back in, on top of 20 lbs. of fruit!

Success.  And a good time was had by all.

  1. This post made me smile because it's so true. When DD and I go out to harvest something from the garden, I have to pack a whole bag - water bottle, toy watering can, etc. and it's not nearly as romantically picturesque as I'd like it to be ;)

    1. So glad it made you smile! And so glad we're not the only ones who have to make a major excursion out of a short garden trip! :)
