Apple Picking

2 Oct

We spent last Sunday morning in the apple orchard.  It was the boys’ first time picking apples — not sure how we missed out on this fun fall activity for the past four falls — and they loved it.  Thankfully, the bees weren’t out in full force, especially since both boys act like their world is melting when any kind of insect gets too close for comfort

We picked without any plan – grabbing anything and everything off the trees that caught our fancy.

And ended up with two huge bags of mismatched types of apples.

I imagine we may try to fit another orchard trip in before picking season turns to pumpkins.  The applesauce is just too easy to make and too big a hit with the munchkins to pass up another batch.
