We headed to the local Rodale Institute, an experimental organic farm which is affiliated with Rodale Press, publishers of Prevention, Men's Health, Backpacking, and all those good reads.
We set out early on Saturday, got a half-bushel bucket, and went a pickin'. Sojo loved it!
The orchard was a little hard for him to navigate due to high grass and apples all over the ground, which was great for us because he couldn't run off.
He got the concept of picking apples off the tree, and eating them of course, which was thrilling for him.
He also liked sneaking the rotten ones off the ground and tasting them too.
And like good parents, we watched and took photos. And laughed.
We filled our basket pretty quickly and agreed to make this a yearly tradition.
Even just for the photo opportunities!
For more Wordful Wednesday, head over to
