Sunday afternoon the Mommies were out shopping and on our way home we were talking about all the beautiful orange trees that lined the highway we were on. We were all surprised and excited when we passed a sign that said ‘U-Pick Oranges’. Cool!! What a fun activity that would be! It was late in the day so we decided that we’d go the following afternoon after the kiddos woke up from their naps.
Well, after all the rain we had Monday morning we knew that wasn’t going to happen so we got creative.
Here’s our version of orange picking with the kids.
Hoist up the kiddos and begin picking. They were happy as could be and our orange picking adventure was a huge success…even if it was only in our living room with the oranges we’d picked up at a roadside stand. :o)
Although the orange picking wasn’t as we’d originally planned it was still fun for the kiddos and the parents too. It’s just one more reason for us to enjoy a FL trip together again sometime – orange picking in the Florida sun rather than our living room.
