Apple Orchard

Yesterday, Jaxson and I spent the day in Gowrie with Grandpa & Grandma Cathcart.  We had a wonderful time.  We went up to Fort Dodge to the apple orchard to pick up some apple goodies.  Jaxson had an absolute blast playing in the kids area, which consisted of goats, a slide, a train, and the best new thing of all. . . a sandbox.  Yes, this was Jaxson’s first time in a sandbox.  He loved sitting in the sand and picking it up and putting it in a bucket.  He even got a taste of it. . . yum yum.  The first time we tried to get him out of it he threw a tantrum, so of course we let him back in to play a little bit longer.  The second time we tried to distract him with the goats, which worked for a few seconds, but then we decided that we would just have to let him cry about missing the sandbox.  So guess what he will be getting in the backyard. We left the orchard with a freshly baked apple pie and some salsa and I can’t wait to get into both of them.
