Apple and pumpkin picking

Sunday Gary was feeling better so we decided to go to the apple and pumpkin place. Emma seemed cranky but it was such a beautiful weekend and we know that there arnt gonna be many more weekends like this before the snow comes! We had never been to this place before. I was very impressed. It was so much fun. You go and get your buckets then its off to the apple orchid.
This is what I call team work. Most of the apples on the bottoms of the trees had already been picked, so we had to reach up high.
We picked around a bushel of apples, probably a little more. It cost us $33.00, but it was so worth it because we know where what we are eating came from.

Her is Emma amongst a bunch of pumpkins, it was a little set up they had to take pic's but she wasn't very happy. She was hot and cranky. But I think this picture is so cute!
We all got in a hay filled wagon then and rode to the pumpkin patch. We let the kids pick there pumpkins, Emma even picked a little one.


It was a great day. When we got home I was so excited and made my first batch of applesauce! It is so yummy! I didn't even have to add sugar. So I'm really excited cause I can give Emma this also! It is so much tastier than anything in the store!

I still have about 1/2 a bushel left. I'm trying to decide what to do with them......maybe apple butter...or more applesauce,,,,I don't know yet.

Looks like you had fun. Where did you go? I always want to take the girls somewhere, but this is always such a busy time of year for us. Mark has to be in the fields on the nice days. Maybe I'll just go to Slater's and get some apples. I'd love to make some apple butter. Yum!
