Oh, it's a seasonal delight! Seriously, I love apple picking and I've been antsy to get the family out to the apple orchards, something we had fun doing this with Liam last year, and excited to introduce sweet baby Nora to the wonders (and blueberry picking was a hit a couple months ago). It was a beautiful weekend here in Kansas City last weekend, so we headed to Weston, MO for our first trip to Red Farm Barn (besides of a wedding I attended there a few years ago). I love this place! It's full of barn animals (piglets!), pumpkins, tractor rides, pony rides, apple orchards, apple donuts (!!), and more.
I'm not sure who had more fun checking out all the animals, me or Liam, but I know we all had fun picking (and eating) apples, Nora included. She was anxious to get out of her stroller, straining her neck to see what big brother was getting to do. When I got her out to carry her closer, she lunged for an apple. For a girl who isn't too keen on solids (though we're having some progress, as seen here), she couldn't get that apple to her mouth fast enough.
She proceeded to crawl under the apple trees, taste-testing practically every fallen apple (quicker than I could stop her, though I wasn't too concern about it since they had told us the apples were safe to eat straight from the tree, as they don't spray the fruit!). She quickly moved on to trying to eat grass, while Liam took a break from all his hard work to enjoy the fruits of his labor (literally!). You can see some of our photos from our fun below (outfit details at the bottom).
