Today I’m turning seven months old! Mom wanted to do some photos of me, so we decided to take my first trip to an apple orchard on Wednesday. I love to go anywhere, especially when it involves a car ride. Here I am all buckled in and ready to roll. Can you read my thoughts? Yep, I’m thinking, put down that camera and drive, lady!
There is a dog friendly orchard just ten minutes from out house. Applewood Orchard has lots of stuff for kids, and they also sell pumpkins. I guess the week before Halloween is a bit late to visit because they didn’t seem to have much left to sell. We had to be careful where we walked too because of all the rain, there was lots of mud.
Did you know Honeycrisp apples were developed right here in the Twin Cities? Of course, that apple had to be where I took my apple photo. I did sniff all the apples on the ground, but they didn’t really appeal to me, so I didn’t eat any of them.
There was also a pumpkin patch, but most of the pumpkins had already been picked and sold. That didn’t bother us at all since we already have our pumpkins at home. Mom gets stuff early because she doesn’t want to be stuck buying what no one else wants.
I got to sit on a wagon with straw bales for hay rides. I think they only do rides on the weekends when lots of families come to visit.
John Deere is my official first tractor. I’ve never been up close to such big wheels. At first I didn’t want to sit next to the tractor, but then I realized it wasn’t going to eat me alive, so I did it.
On the way out, we saw the bales with some pumpkins and stopped for one last photo. I’m used to being on bales from barn hunt, but there were no rats, only pumpkins. To celebrate me turning seven months old today, we have a really fun weekend planned. Stay tuned to Facebook and Instagram to see what we are up to. I’m sure we will post about it next week too.
For anyone wondering how I may have changed over seven months, the above photo was taken on the day I was born. Amazing! I was more like a fuzzy blob but I think I am turning out pretty well. I’m the one with the black dot on top of my head, and the arrow is pointing at me. Thanks to my breeder for the photo.
