I took a vacation day on Monday to be home for he plumber. Well, the plumber came earlier than planned and was unable to find any problems, so I was left with good news and an entirely free afternoon. My mom suggested that we take Nate to our local pumpkin patch, since we hadn't been there yet this season. While we were there we decided to do some impromptu apple picking. Nate wasn't thrill at first, but then he really got into it and ended up being a fine apple picker!
I always anticipate that these endeavors will be expensive, but it worked out to $1.25 per pound for the apples, so it was actually cheaper than buying them at the store!
