Move: Apple Picking

Happy First Day of Autumn! 

One of our favorite ways to celebrate the start of this season is to go... APPLE PICKING!

Apple Picking is fun and easy, even for toddlers, because there are usually low fruit-bearing branches, and the apples come off very easily. Gathering a bag or a "bushel" can be done in a fairly short amount of time...which is also a good thing when little ones (and little attention spans) are involved! Apples can also be used for SO many kid-friendly crafts and recipes. Stay tuned for a few of those in the coming weeks! I have some fun ones up my sleeve! :)

This year I also taught Landon this song to sing while we picked: 

I love you a bushel and peck
A bushel and peck and a hug around the neck
A hug around the neck and a barrel and a heap
A barrel and a heap and I'm talking in my sleep
About you, about you

Well I love seeing me and my buddy here! I was just at that website last night to read how to cook pumpkins and turn them into pies and bread. I believe Sarah has mentioned that site to me before too when we were looking for places to pick blackberries.
