So I took the boys apple pickin' and we all had a wonderful time. The orchards were beautiful and I could have snapped pictures all day long. The negative space between the leaves, the shapes cast by sun light as it fell between the branches, the vivid colors of the fallen apples in contrast to the rich green grass... what is it about the light that falls on an apple orchard? Perfect! Well that was all missed by my young children. The enjoyed picking, eating and throwing apples. We shinned apples on our shirts until the gleamed... and then I saw the pumpkin patch. We are so going back to the pumpkin patch. For now I need to deal with all of these apples.
