Family Fun

I like to refer to Saturday's as family day. It is usually the only day of the week when we don't really have to get anything done. This Saturday, we took advantage of the beautiful weather and went to a local apple orchard.

We thought it would be fun to pack a lunch and eat outside. Both of my boys are too focused on eating to even bother looking at the camera!

After our picnic, Karter was ready for some fun! (Note: We are not the only people there, we just parked far away so we could picnic.)

First stop was the petting zoo! Of course, Karter loved to point out all of the animals and even helped mama feed a goat.

I love farm animals, but cannot stand goats! Not sure why I chose to feed one then, but Karter thought my reaction was hilarious!

He wasn't so sure about the camel, but did end up helping daddy feed it.

After feeding the animals (and mommy making sure we sanitized our hands!), it was off to the playground to burn off some energy! This isn't the best picture, but it is the only one that I have of him on the swing smiling. He was laughing the whole time, but I just wasn't able to capture it quick enough.

He thought the the big tubes were cool, but didn't want to actually crawl through.

His favorite thing was the steering wheel! He kept turning the wheel and saying "whoo, whoo" (that is his noise for any kind of horn).

While waiting for the hayride, we decided to check Karter's height. He liked to point to the apple, but didn't like standing still so we could measure him!

After all of that fun, it was time for the main picking! It is still pretty early in the season, so there were only a few varieties to pick. Karter was a great apple picker...

...but his favorite thing to do was eat them! After we were done picking, he had probably eaten an entire apple...that is a lot of fresh fruit for his little system to handle!
All in all it was a great day to spend outside doing something we enjoy together! I'll be gone for our next two family days, so we'll have to come up with something super fun for when I get back!

Looks like you had a blast! Karterman is just so cute but has changed a lot since the beach.
