A friend invited us to come help ourselves to some of their "organic" apples. How could we turn that down! God blessed us with a beautiful day too. One couldn't get better skies!
There were plenty of bugs to look at (or be looked at by):
We were especially interested in this huge yellow and black spider. None of my other pictures of her turned out, but in this one you can at least see her egg sac, of which she was proudly standing guard. It was very fitting for Rachel who had just read in Charlotte's Web this morning about Charlotte's egg sac containing 514 eggs!It wasn't until the end of our time that we realized Baby Cakes had spent the entire time eating apples.
We decided we liked the green-colored apples best (we tasted the trees to see what was what):
So did Baby:
The apples were dappled on the outside, a sure sign of their being organic! :)
Baby stands guard over the apple bags:
Aren't the crab apples amazing!
It was about this time that someone made the observation: Baby Cakes hasn't stopped eating.
We filled the baskets and bags and headed back to the car.
Grandma stopped to pick a bouquet to leave for our friends:
We stopped at Grandma's on the way home for a much-needed cup of tea and then it was time for dinner and soccer. I was given a delightful 1 1/2 hours on my own in which I was able to take a walk and pick my own bouquet!
And now I must turn my mind to apples...... and what to do with them. I feel as though they dropped in my lap and I'm just kind of hoping that some time also drops in my lap to make good use of them! :)
