first apple picking of the year

And in the first item off my fall bucket list we have the picking of the apples. This time with five kids in tow, down to our local (sort of ) orchard. All the mothers were sweating before the picking even began on this nice cool fall morning. All the children were just so loud. Capital l. A few had breakdowns. I am just glad that we were there upon opening and therefore alone. The hills echoed with the sound of these kids. 

We came. We picked. We conquered.

I immediately (by way of Home Goods and Target) went home and made myself an apple cake, not that I eat desserts as of late but there it is. Maybe I'll make a stove top potpourri.... and maybe some applesauce. The world is my oyster.

These apple picking adventures aren't what they once were that is for sure... but it's been six years of it and we can't stop now!

Last year's picking here. Year before that here.



  1. Awh such cute pictures of the kids in the orchard. It's nice you practically had the place to yourself! How did the apple cake turn out?

  2. Another successful outing! Now I want to go and pick all the apples. I also want to make some apple crisp. Yikes. ;-)

  3. oh this looks so flawlessly fall!! the weather looks amazing!!

  4. Seriously, this is all I want to do. The first thing I am doing when we move to Georgia, is find the nearest apple orchard. Then I am going to live there. LOL

  5. all the apples. then you turned right back around and went with me bc you're the bestest friend. :)

  6. I love apple season! We are going this Friday (knock on wood it doesn't rain) and I'm really looking forward to it. I always make apply crisp and applesauce. this year I'm going to try canning apple sauce because we always have so many apples to use up in such a short time. it looks like you guys had a blast :)
