Myles and Amber wake up early to visit Grandma and Grandpa’s California apple orchard. They pick apples all day long, climbing ladders and disappearing into trees.   Grandma makes apple cider, and they snack on fresh apple pie.

Old Man Fookwire is a grump who only likes to paint pictures of birds that visit his backyard. The problem is, they fly south every winter, leaving him sad and lonely.
