This weekend I met up with some March Moms so we could get our little March babies together, Mason of course came with. Since Kyla is clearly too young to pick Apples I was excited to see Mason pick some Apples. When we first arrived he had just woken up from a nap so he was not a happy camper! After a bit of walking and apple picking he got into it. Especially when he saw the net you could use to get the apples from high up.
It was a struggle for *me* to use the net yet he insisted on using it all by himself.
He got it at the perfect angle and used the ground to help him. He problem solved.
At this point a group of UVA students had stopped to watch him. One young guy offered to help but I explained that he just wanted to do it himself.
and do it himself he did. We all cheered, me, the moms I was with and the group of UVA students! He was SO happy!
So happy in fact that he wanted to do it 7 more times. I told him one and he replied EIGHT. I said one again and he expressed his dissatisfaction
And then he did it one more time with the promise of ice cream luring him away.
It was SO hot and busy that I didn’t get any pictures of Kyla or Kyla and Mason together in the orchard so we’ll be going again to a local orchard to get those classic seasonal photos!
