Sunflowers and apple picking.

Nothing says Kansas like sunflowers.  And nothing says fall like apple picking.  So what do we do in Kansas in the fall?  Visit sunflower fields and apple orchards of course!

One fun Sunday, HW had to study all day (as usual) and I was not in the mood to stay home on a gorgeous day.  So I decided it would be fun to take the kids apple picking.  I dressed them, got them all excited, packed them up in the car and drove to the orchards.  Trouble was, I arrived at 10 AM and they didn't open until 12PM.

Sooooo....there was this sunflower field only a half an hour away.  We rode over and we got some precious photos of AW.  (DW was passed out)

 Here a random dog just wandered into our shot.  Thanks, random dog.

Things were going pretty well at the ol' Sunflower fields so I packed the kiddos up and headed to the apple orchards.  It was a really cute place. It had a little country store, a fire pit to roast marshmallows, a duck pond and food to feed the ducks, and a fun tractor took you out to the fields to pick your apples.  Here the boys are enjoying the spoils of their picking.

What you don't see in these photos is me.  Mom.  Mom, who had a large diaper bag, camera bag, and 10 lb bag of apples in one hand and whilst with her other hand simultaneously is trying to help her short 2 year old pick apples from a tall tree branch and corral her curious, crawling one year old from diving straight into piles of rotten apples and bumblebees on the ground.  Apple picking alone with two toddlers sucks.
