Today we made our annual trek to the apple orchard with Auntie Carly and Uncle Mike. We met them Aamodt's Apple Orchard and quickly the kids wanted to wonder in the hay maze and ride on the tractor wagon. So far, so good.
After exploring the activities, we decided to grab a quick apple treat inside the building and then get busy doing what we came to do - pick apples. Here is where the day quickly failed....
As we got the area to buy our picking bag, no one was manning the booth. There was no sign, so Jon went into the building to get the scoop. Sadly, he came back with the news that they were picked out. Seriously. So, we scoured the rows for a few pathetic apples so that we could take the obligatory photos, and then headed bowling.
Although the apple picking was a "fail," the afternoon activities and bowling were a blast.
So grateful that we have the apple orchard tradition with Auntie Carly and Uncle Mike. Hopefully next year, we leave with apple.
