This weekend Jose and I took Bug for her first apple picking experience! Actually, it was a first for us too. I like to pick my own fruit, but have never picked apples, and just recently found out that there is a farm not that far from home that has an apple orchid. I think we started a new tradition to do every fall now. It was a lot of fun and a great way to kick off my favourite season! Also, I like to bake an apple pie for Thanksgiving weekend, so thought this would be a great way to stock up.
It was handy having Jose around. All of the best apples were at the tops of the trees, so someone had to climb up there and get ’em and it sure wasn’t going to be me! There could’ve been spiders in there…
The Bug wasn’t as thrilled as I was, as you can see. One day I hope she loves these little outings as much as I do.
Check out that awesome hair! Poor girl…there’s nothing I can do to get that hair to stay down. Oh well. She wears it proud.
As I mentioned, I plan on baking an apple pie for Thanksgiving weekend like I normally do, but I’m also going to attempt to make a pumpkin pie too. From scratch. Like with a pumpkin! Wish me luck.
