Apple picking

After a soggy (drenching, really!) morning on the soccer fields, we headed up to an apple farm with my folks to pick some apples today. One of the great benefits of my flex schedule is that I'm off most Fridays and get so many of my "chores" done, leaving me time to play with the kids on Saturday without feeling quilty! :)

Carson started the day complaining that apple picking was for babies and he didn't want to go. Funny how he seemed to forget that once got to the farm. He and grampa find plenty of ripe apples reading for picking.

Elise tended to go for the "cute" looking apples...only discovering when we got home that they weren't really that yummy and should have stayed on the tree a bit longer.

The kids got along great and we had a wonderful time.

Carson couldn't wait to try his apples and ate one on the wagon ride back.

We had a great time! And we'll be eating apples for a while! :)

Wow! What a great day you all had. And what wonderful memories you've given Carson & Elise. I think I remember that you scrap? This day would be an amazing layout! I wish we had apple picking or true pumpkin patches to do so I could scrap them for Erin.

As for all those apples, I'm thinking: baked apples, fried apples, apple pie, applesauce. Goodness, now I'm hungry!

Now that looks like fun. I so look forward to doing that kind of thing with my kidlet.

Kerri loves apple picking season! We took her last year and she had a blast.
I think it is wonderful that you have a flex schedule!
