Fresh from the Patch

Last Thursday Jasper and I tagged along on a field trip to Gilcrease Orchard hosted by my friend Nancy for her preschool class.

We drove out with Trisha and her 2 kiddos. We were the "sick-mobile", as I was sick and Jasper and Benjamin both had a runny nose. I was so happy to ride with Trisha and get to spend a few minutes talking and catching up.

There is something not very "fall-ish" about a 93 degree day at a pumpkin patch.

After Jasper picked the apples he wanted to throw them. I tried to explain that they were not balls to be thrown, but he did not want to listen.

Jasper was thrilled to have plenty of room to run free up and down row after row of pumpkins, tomatoes and apples.

When we got done running around the orchard we got a tour of the facility where they make apple juice, and then we got some samples to drink. DELICIOUS!

We bought a gallon to take home and enjoy.

Kim and Shelby came too. Jasper and Shelby are great buddies. We're so glad to have them as friends.

Thanks for a fun day!

Okay....apart from being dressed in "Fall" colors....he looks fantastic in orange! Love that color on him. I know, I know, only a girl can appreciate "seasons" but hey, I am calling it as I see it. That's one of his colors!

wow, you got some great shots! The colors look so beautiful, it makes me wish I was there, wait I was! I guess most of the color is from Jasper's shirt and his pumpkin :)

Hey, I think that orchard is pretty close to my new house. I will have to go and check it out for jonathon apples - Dad's favorite. Looks like great fun was had by all. Love, Mom
