Apple Picking (The First Edition)

Apple Picking First Time Around
Last week I took the girls to a local apple orchard to go apple picking. We had a ball together. It was so fun to watch which apples they picked. Pumpkin needed lots of refresher courses on the rule, "We do not pick up the apples from the ground."

They were so very excited and it literally took all of 15 minutes at the most. Isn't it amazing how the little things can make such great memories?

They each had their own small bag to fill and did a really super job.

I just love palling around with these two sweet little people that God has given us. Daddy has been super busy with school and doing an incredible job at proving himself in the HCId master's program. That means long hours at school so I am thankful that we can make these little excursions together.

Our trip ended with apple cider slushies and complimentary bags of popcorn. That was really helpful after a tragic spill in the wagon in which Pumpkin scraped up her elbow really good and got very mad at Mommy. Slushies will fix about anything!

By the way...the apples are AMAZING. I think the girls picked the best of the best. They must be apple picking prodigies!
