Field trip!

Yesterday was our first field trip with our new homeschool group. We had a lot of fun and the kids *gasp* learned some new things in the process.

It was very windy, but pretty warm considering how cold it has been in the mornings. We went to a local apple orchard, we learned about cherries and apples and had a fun wagon ride to the apple processing plant. The boys loved going in the big refrigerator, no I did not take a pic in there, I'm whimpy and it was cold :P.

Here is Little Man, why can't I get a normal shot of him?

Or them? It must be genetic. (you'll understand why I say this in an upcoming post)

Oh wait, I can, if they aren't looking :).

Maybe eating fresh apple cider donuts will distract them enough to allow a good shot? Yeah, worked okay.

We had a great time and look forward to the next field trip at the end of next week!

If that second picture had the kids on the left of the frame, and more field out to the right of the frame showing the vastness of it all, it would make an awesome poster to hang on the wall.

Title it something like, "the bigness of life" or something silly like that.

The kids sure seemed to love it though!

I'm glad you had fun and found a good group that does things! It's fun to finally get out with our group once in a while too. Those are great pictures! I agree with Stu about that picture.

You say genetic, I say they are doing it on purpose. That's what I do anyway!!!
