A few weeks ago I blogged about my personal guilt over not bringing The Peanut to an apple farm/pumpkin patch (click here for the original post). Well, the husband, The Peanut and I were able to make it to Honey Pot Hill Orchards in Stow, MA, on Saturday (highly recommended). With this visit, we officially passed another milestone on the path of yuppie parenthood (which involves a $22 rubber girafffe and paying $15 to “pick your own” bag of apples). I’m also happy to say I have joined the ranks of every other thirty-something parent I “know” on facebook.
We had a great time picking apples, eating cider donuts, posing around pumpkins, and observing animals at the petting zoo.
We supported local agriculture (feels good, especially in this economy).
Best of all, I did not have to resort to propping The Peanut on my front stoop surrounded by various gourds and fruits. Here are some pictures taken over the course of the day.
