Isn't it incredible that before today Ben didn't know that apples grew on trees. We went to pick apples, assuming that he would enjoy himself. Little did we realize he would run around laughing and throwing apples like a wild farrel child. He was ecstatic to be surrounded by thousands of apples of all colours and sizes. It didn't occur to him that we could EAT these apples until he saw Jon pick one and take a bite, he stared in awe and Jon picked him up to get his own fresh from the tree snack (sampling was encouraged at this particular orchard...). These is something so refreshing about being so close to your food- from tree to mouth. It was a perfect morning; cool, sunny and full of Red Delicious apples!
