We have been having perfect fall weather this week. On Tuesday, the kids had a half-day off from school. Combine the two and what do you have? An apple-picking trip!
The orchard was deserted. The trees were loaded down with apples — so many that we could have easily filled our bags in minutes. Instead, we lingered. And sampled some of the fruit.
We came home loaded down with two bulging bags. The kids have been steadily eating through them and I have been making apple sauce, apple muffins, and baking pies. Oh, how I love fall!
