reaching the big ones
On Tuesday, Wes, Andrew and I drove to Hudson to the Fix Brother Orchard to pick apples.  We had never been there before, but some family members had.  We showed Andrew how to pick by twisting the apple and told him to put them carefully in the bag so they wouldn’t bruise.

Wes lifted him high in the air to reach some really big ones.
