Apple Picking

Crisp, crunchy, juicy, full-of-flavor, deep red apples made their way into our u-pick bags today at the apple farm today.  The fall day was perfect for apple picking--a little cool and slightly overcast.  We took home Northern Spy, Cortland, and McIntosh apples.  They are probably the best apples I’ve ever had!  We also bought some delicious apple cider and apple cider donuts.  The people working at the orchard were probably some of the friendliest people I've met, but that goes for all the people we've met here.  I don't know that we've ever been in a more friendly state.  

K had also had a blast picking apples.  Although he found the best part to be picking up apples from the ground and throwing them everywhere.  It was a field filled with endless “balls”.  Of course there were sticks so he picked those up as well and had a small collection by the time we left.  He was also captivated by the indoor ceiling train.  He followed it from room to room making train sounds.  

Papa and Grandma are visiting and we've had such a great time so far.  Kai's brother left on Sunday and we had such a good time with him too.  Pictures will be coming from that time and also the recent trip to Boston which was sssssooooooo much fun.  That's another city that I completely am in love with and have been ever since high school.  

 Always content with a stick

 It's a little early to pick our pumpkins, but we'll be heading back in a couple of weeks for sure!
