This past weekend we took a quick trip to a local orchard. For years we have made a day of going to the apple orchard, however, the past two years we have had a hard time fitting it in to our crazy schedule. (That's a whole story I won't bore you with!) This year in bewteen soccer games we decided to try a local orchard, literally 5 minutes from our house. Well, it was not the perfect orchard experience....apples too high for the girls to pick, LOTS of people, only a few rows to pick from, and not a great photo shoot experience. It was not a total wash however, the girls had a good time and the apples were delicous.
I did manage to squeak out a few good shots. For those of you who follow me on instagram you have seen the shot below. I decided to have the girls go into a "no pick" row for a shot and as you can see June was not at all interested in having her picture taken...I think it is my favorite shot from the day!
What I failed to mention on IG is that as soon as we took this picture we headed to the car and the skies opened up with a heavy, heavy, rain. So I guess at the end of the day we could give our overall experience a thumbs up...apples, pictures, girls had a good time, close to home, and we stayed dry. Besides, there is always next year!
