I was recently fortunate enough to join Colin on a class field trip to a farm. I dropped him off in the morning as per my usual routine, then showed up fifteen minutes later to surprise him. When he saw me, he smiled broadly then he shouted, "Daddy!" Boy did that feel good.
I took his hand in mine and together we boarded the bus. On the ride over to the farm, we sang songs together and I let him play with my iPhone for a short while. When we arrived, the kids, teachers, and I all excitedly got off the bus and headed over to the farm.
The kids enjoyed stomping around in the corn bin, seeing the animals, and picking out pumpkins. We even got to go on a hayride. As I sat on a bale of moving hay with my son, I thought to myself, "It doesn't get better than this."
When it was time to go, each kid received an apple from the farm. On the ride back to daycare, Colin and I shared pieces of the apple. It was a sweet ending to a sweet trip.
Apples are a great way to add some natural sweetness to your dishes. One particularly useful way of using apples is making your own homemade applesauce. Not only is homemade applesauce easy to make, you can be assured that there are no added sugars when you make it yourself.
