it's apple picking time....



If there is one activity that I immediately associate with fall, it is the amazing apple picking that can be had in our area of New York. With a visiting grandma in tow, we ventured to our local farm where a lovely Saturday morning was spent picking apple after apple. The boys filled not only their apple bags, but also their little tummies as they reveled in the ability to taste any apple they picked. (it also helped that they were strongly encouraged to sample as many apples as they would like, and to subsequently throw their tasted apples back onto the ground....an activity they were delighted to participate in!) After a good day was had filling bag upon bag of apples, we naturally finished off our adventure with five sets of hands diving into a box of fresh, warm apple cider doughnuts....after all, my eldest son states that a farm is not an apple farm without them. Happy fall everyone :)
