A day at the orchard

I have finally been able to go through the pictures from the orchard.  It was a sunny, beautiful , Fall day, a little chilly, but the sun warmed you as you walked.  The "little" kids (including Max) had a day off school so we made a day of it.  This is one of my favorite orchards to visit....the property is lovely and there is lots of other fun stuff for the kids to do.


I seemed to be following behind that day, many of my pictures are from the back.


Also, some are B&W....just liked 'em that way.  I was also glad to sneak a few of Max. 


Kendall and I shared a bag we did a little picking and a lot of walking.  She was a bit of a crank for part of the day:)


Cute and cranky!


We picked Liberty and Cortland apples....sweet and tart, my favorite.


Kendall could reach a few.


June filled her bag quickly....


...more walking..


By the time we made it to the Liberty apples our bags were just about full, but we picked a few more and headed on to more fun.


June and her stash.


June and Max actually had a little bonding time, normally they are trying to drive each other crazy!


Lastly, apple doughnuts and the playground.  We also fed the goats and went for a ride on the carousel.  All in all a good day.  We even stopped at McDonald's on the way home.




Lots going on here.  Keeping busy with soccer and school.  Last week I was the mystery reader in June's class and I accompanied her on her first field the apple orchard:)  This week is Homecoming week for the boys.  There are activities every day and we have a heavy soccer schedule.  Both boys are going to the dance.  Pictures for the boys are at two different places....what am I going to do?  Hope you have a good week.

What a great day! It looks so nice there. Pretty much all the leaves here are now laying on the ground. Between the dry conditions and the wind, I guess they just couldn't take it anymore. Needless to say, I didn't get many fall photos. xo
