Apple Pickin'

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!



Sophia wanted to get in on the act so bad. She kept pulling at the leaves on the trees!




A whole box of apples just for him!


After we went to stand in line to pay for our apples we headed to the petting farm they had. On the way Keegan insisted on having one of his apples! We had to walk down a hill to get to the animals and on our way we found a lamb just out eating some grass. I asked Keegan how close he thought he could get before it ran away and he didn't think he could get to close, but wouldn't you know, he got all the way up to it and was petting it. It was too funny becausehe was trying so hard to not let the lamb get his apple!


Once we got to the animals. Keegan found the kittens. He is such an animal lover and I know will grow up and do something for or having to do with animals. Here he is loving up on a little kitten.


He thought the pig felt funny.


Sophia wasn't cute sure what to think about the pig.


Both Keegan and I thought it was funny that this turkey is HUGE and is 6 months old just like Sophia!


The donkey that took a bite of Keegan's jacket!


Llama Llama Red Pajama!


This was BEFORE the calf took a bit out of Keegan's apple that was in the stroller! I was trying to get a picture of Sophia, Keegan and the calf! Well, he found the apple and it was downhill from there!



We had a GREAT time at the apple orchard and are loving our crisp apples!
