Apple Picking

Is there anything that says fall more than venturing out into an orchard and picking apples off of the trees? There are so many wonderful reasons to love fall, especially in New England, but I must say fresh off the tree apples are my favorite. Yesterday, we took a quick trip to a local orchard to let the kids pick some apples. It had already been a VERY busy weekend, but apple season may soon end and we definitely didn't want to miss out on the annual experience.

Eating as much as he's picking!

We came home and made our first patch of applesauce of the season. It was so good. Cinnamon spice and oh so nice! I absolutely love the fall. There is so much to look forward to this time of year. Apples and pumpkins and football and changing leaves...

  1. I love apple picking. There is nothing better than a fresh picked apple. And the donuts and cider aren't so bad either. I'm going next week. Can't wait!
