Apple Picking & Wal- Mart

Today we drove out to Thiessen Orchards (a mile or so outside of Leamington) to do some apple picking. Jeremy was excited and kept talking about carrying a basket and picking apples. Obviously, he had seen apple picking in a book or on TV.

The weather was just about right - not too warm or too cool. We arrived around 10:30 am, just after the Karb family arrived. So we grouped together and went out on a tractor ride. The boys enjoyed the very bumpy ride.

After the ride we grabbed some bags and a cart and headed out to pick some Red and Golden Delicious apples. The Red Delicious were in short supply but we managed to pick about three bags worth. Jeremy and Corbin had way too much fun. We headed back to get some other apples and pay for our haul.

We weren't ready to head back to Windsor, so we stopped at the Wal-Mart in Leamington to do some shopping and then grabbed a late lunch at Gilligans. Their burgers are awesome - Jeremy just about ate his entire burger - which is bigger than your kids burgers at most restaurants.
