Apple Picking

It was a gorgeous Fall day and my son decided he wanted to make apple pie, so we went apple picking.  Autumn Hills Orchard in Groton, MA uses sustainable methods for growing their fruit and has the most beautiful views to enjoy while you pick.

The trees are great for climbing and the apples are amazing.

We also picked out a couple of pumpkins and weighed them.  My son chose a bigger pumpkin so we weighed them separately, then together to add a little math to the day.

On our way out, we passed a few pear trees.  After all the climbing and running, I'm sure that we will have two napping kids on the car ride home.
