Every day, on the way home from daycare, we pass by an apple orchard. Both Cam and Maggie love it - and actually, APPLE TREE was one of the first phases Maggie said.

So this year, I came up with what I thought was a great idea. I thought I could buy a bag to pick apples, but instead of doing it all at once, just let the kids stop each day on the way home and pick one apple. Wouldn't that be fun? I finally got around to calling the place and asking if we could do it - I really thought they would think it was a fun idea. It's a tiny, family owned place... and the woman was SO not receptive to it. She said it would be too complicated.

I was really annoyed and disappointed - I really thought that a little family place would be open to making some toddler's day. But no. Oh well. They lost a customer who would have been made happy SO easily.

That stinks. Do they let anyone pick apples?

What a good idea! I'm sorry it didn't work out.
