Apple Picking at Farnsworth Farms

This was our very first time going to a farm to go apple picking as a family. I had seen pictures of friends going to these beautiful orchards (mainly in California and New England), and thought it would be a great idea. Since we love apples, nature, and making memories, it sounded like a perfect Fall activity.

I have to admit that I was a little disappointed in the condition of the Farm. It looked run down and not taken care for.  We almost didn’t go. On top of that, the day was rainy, the ground was muddy, and it was colder than expected. However, my kids didn’t see any of the above mentioned. Everything looked perfect to them, they were in HEAVEN. Being outside in nature, carrying their little baskets, grabbing the wormy apples from the ground and trees, running around in the muddy ground was the equivalent of being at Disneyland to them. We made some great memories that day, and I was reminded once again that some of the best things in life don’t require a lot (or any) money and they happen around family and nature.

Nuestra aventura cosechando manzanas en Farnsworth Farms

Esta fue nuestra primera vez yendo juntos como familia a cosechar manzanas. Habiendo visto fotos de amigos cosechando manzanas en California y la Costa Este, pense que seria una gran idea. Como nos gustan las manzanas, la naturaleza, y el crear recuerdos, me parecio una actividad otoñal ideal.

Tengo que confesarles que me senti un poco desilusionada por la condicion de los arboles de la granja donde fuimos. No parecia que los cuidan mucho. Casi no fuimos. Ademas de eso, el dia estaba lluvioso, el suelo barroso, y hacia mas frio de lo que pensabamos. Pero mis hijos no vieron nada de eso. Todo les parecio perfecto. Estaban mas que felices jugando afuera, llevando sus canastitos y recogiendo las manzanitas del suelo y de los arboles. Parecia que estaban en Disneylandia. Hicimos lindos recuerdos ese dia, y nuevamente me di cuenta de que las mejores cosas de la vida no requieren mucho o nada de dinero y que se hacen alrededor de la familia y la naturaleza.
