Our "must-do" chores for the day were done unexpectedly early so I bundled the kids into the car and headed for our closest orchard. Daddy stayed behind to work on the basement in peace. Elizabeth wasn't too pleased to hear this meant going to Mountain Orchard (a new place!) instead of the slightly longer drive to the place we went last year, but she was soon consoled by the discovery that it also had a play structure. And apples.
Matthew was quite excited to pick apples off the tree, though there was a learning curve - he found the wormy ones on the ground easier to pick up and couldn't understand why Elizabeth and Mommy didn't want him to eat those!
