As I have already stated and will probably continue to state, I love fall. What is more fallish (I know fallish is not a word but it was the only one I could think of) than picking apples? Carving a pumpkin maybe, but that will come in time too. Right now I am just enjoying my apples.
We were the only people picking apples so I just let the kids do what they wanted. Wes took full control of the picking pole.
While Felicity sampled apples.
I kept having flash backs from last year. Felicity was just starting to crawl around and this year she is eating apples and running after her brother! Time sure flies. It's pretty amazing that I have been blogging enough to say "last year" and actually have a post to link back to, too!
I think we ate enough apples to keep the doctor away for quiet some time.
While picking A aaa apples. Wes and I sang ABC's talked about what the purpose of leaves are and how we make apple sauce. I think it is safe to say that today was our first field trip and I am sure there will many more to follow.
After we had picked a bushel of Ida Red apples, I wanted to get a few nice shots of the kids together.
The background of this beautiful old quiet apple orchard was just too much for me to pass up.
Add to that my adorable baby girl
And her handsome brother and you have a perfect photo session. Right?!
Ummm...No. Do you see the pout forming on my darling's face? Yeah it's kind of hard to miss. She was not feeling it.
Oh well, I guess that just means we will have to go back again.
