Chasing Davies: Apple Picking in Weston!

Apple Picking in Weston!

A couple weeks ago, we started September off with some early apple picking.  This year, we went with friends to Weston Red Barn Farm to spend the morning no just picking apples, but seeing the farm animals, riding a tractor and eating lunch (get the pulled pork sandwich, so good)/slurping down apple cider slushies.  It was a beautifully cooler morning (for early Sept) and the kids were in their element - getting to run around and get dirty!!

Fall is so perfect for us because we can get outside and do all those fun fall things (see my favorite 7 things to do here).  And both of my kids love to be outside exploring and, as Liam says, "find nature" (now if only the mosquitos, or chiggers, or oak-mites, or whatever they are would go away).  As the kids get older this kind of stuff is so important - to see where our food comes from, get them involved in picking apples, taking them home and cooking with them later, and spending time as a family.

Of course - after a morning picking apples - we had tons to take home!  I used them last weekend to make apple pie - and had the kids (+ Liam's friend!) help!  They loved taking turns pouring the ingredients into the bowl, stirring and then, of course, the end result!
