More apple stuff

We painted a picture using an apple. After stamping her apple Aly turned the stamps into butterflies and a ladybug.
She also made an apple tree. This painting was done with a straw, cotton balls, and a cotton swab.
About ready to wrap up apple month and move onto something else. Thinking that we will do tigers next and then Halloween.

Lattin's Cider Mill

We went on a field trip to Lattin's Cider Mill. We got to try apple cider and apple cider donuts.

We also got to see peacock eggs and a quail egg. They are really different in size. We also saw a newly hatched chick.
We pet a bunny, fed some goats, saw some pigs and got to ride on a very special train.

We had a great time!

Apple Fritters

This month we have spent some extra time learning about apples. Aly helped her Poppy make apple fritters and apple cinnamon cake. She doesn't really like apple pie so I don't know if we will try that one. Here are some pictures from when she made apple fritters.

They were very yummy. :)

Our day at the zoo

This is the story that Aly wrote about our trip to the zoo. She also took the photo! She narrated the story and I typed it for her.

Tigers are Fun to Watch

On Wednesday I went to the zoo. I actually saw tigers and they were wrestling, playing, chasing and biting!
The tigers were a momma and her baby. The momma chased a big can into the water. She bit onto it to see if it was really alive.
The baby came running out of the jungle. He jumped on his momma and he chased her. The baby was almost as big as his momma.
The tigers at the zoo are Sumatrin tigers. Sumatrin tigers in the wild are an endangered species and that means there are not many left which is sad for people like me who love tigers. I hope someone will save the tigers!
