Pumpkins and apples

I am posting twice in one day. Why? Because I can! It is my blog after all.

I took the kids after school to get our Halloween pumpkins and to get some more apples. We met one of the moms from the MOMS club and her kids there. It was nice to only have a small group. She has 3 kids also so we kind of have a little posse as it is. Allan, her oldest, is in Simon's class.

I took lots of pictures as usual. Ok, I guess usual would be me forgetting my camera for the fun outdoor adventures. Hey, at least I remembered my check book this time. I am still amazed at how much money I spent. Between the huge bucket full of apples, 2 medium sized pumpkins (My rule is they have to carry their own. Keeps them smaller that way), and Seth's small pumpkin, I spent $40! Money well spent I say.

I love being able to take my kids to do fun things like this. One of the best parts is the orchard is like 5 minutes from home.

Here are some pictures from our outing...
Seth liked that the apples were at his level. The poor trees were drooping from the weight of all the ripe fruit.

Simon found a good one... more than once.

I think the pumpkin weighs as much as she does.

He tested all of them out by sitting on them or kicking at 'em. I had to put a stop to the kicking but the sitting was pretty cute.

It's so much fun to be able to put up little videos.

Seth is learning to pose for the camera now.
