trip to the apple orchard

This past Saturday, we woke up to a beautiful, crisp fall morning. The sun was shining and the kids were in a good mood so the hubby and I knew it would be the perfect day to hit-up the local apple orchard.

Both kiddos were super excited as we arrived at the orchard - Little Miss L. jumped out of the vehicle and made a mad dash straight for the apple trees in front of us. After telling her to hold her horses, we jumped onto the wagon ride and rode deep into the apple bush.

As soon as the wagon stopped, Little Miss L. had her basket in hand and started picking those juicy red balls of goodness. Both her and Baby D did more eating than participating in the picking process, but they loved every minute of it.

We had a wonderful morning and left with a bushel full of apples and some fresh apple cider to enjoy once we were home.

Here's our trip to the orchard... I may have went a tad overboard on the photos!
Ready to go!
I have got my basket, ready to get my pick on.
Waiting for momma to get on the wagon.
I love that my son looks petrified and my daughter is hanging on for dear life as we are on the wagon ride.
She picked her first apple of the year.
She had to bite right in.
While mommy and daddy worked hard picking, these two pretty much did this the whole time.
Baby D bites into his first apple.

That's right, we put her to work.
Little Miss L. was determined to get the perfect one.
My little girl is growing up.
My handsome little guy. Look at those cheeks.
Momma's girl.
What's a visit to the apple orchard without a jump shot?
She made sure to fill her basket with only apples she had picked.
I would turn my back for one moment then find her hiding in the trees munching away.
My two favourite little people.
My two men.
They melt my heart each and every day.
Baby D. gets me with those eyes all the time.
Baby D's first time at the apple orchard and making sure he picks the perfect one for his momma.
He can't wait until these babies turn into pies and crisps. 
Family shot. Thank you Log Cabin Orchard for a great morning!

  1. Gorgeous photos and now I'm inspired to get my butt to the apple orchard before it's too late!

  2. Thank you! I can fondly remember going to the apple orchard when I was young. I hope my children will have the same memories :)
