Today after long thought about if I really wanted to drive an hour away to pick some apples I decided we should go. Keegan has not ever picked apples so I figured why not, plus it was a great day. It wasn't hot and it wasn't cold. It was a pretty fall day! Earlier in the summer we had picked blue berries in Mississippi so I think he kind of knew what to expect.
We had to drive from our house in Arnold about an hour away to the other side of Baltimore to Westminster. I didn't realize how close we actually were to Pennsylvania while we were there until the drive home. We were only about 30 mins away! Anyway, we went to this GREAT Apple Orchard called Baugher's. They have way more than just apples, depending on the season there are peaches, strawberries, pumpkins and a bunch of other stuff you can go and pick. We might have to go back at a different time to pick some other things.
When we got to the farm we had to jump on the wagon and they took us out to the orchard. Keegan loves going on the wagon and getting pulled by the tractor. Once we got off they have boxes you pick up and then you are off to go get your apples.
There were a about 4 different kinds of apples you could pick. We chose Red Delicious and Golden Delicious. Here are some pictures of Keegan picking his apples. He had to pick all of the little ones. He said those were just for him! After I explained to him how to pick a good one he was on his own!
We had a GREAT time at the apple orchard and are loving our crisp apples!
