I took the kids to an apple orchard a few days ago. We went with a friend Julie and her son Trevor. We walked up the the older gentleman in charge, each of us with a one year old on our hip, me holding Soraya's hand and Julie being 8 months pregnant. So the gentleman just looked at us...so I said, "We are wondering about the pick your own apples" and he just looked at us quite perplexed...so I said, "Can we pick our own apples?" And he gaves us a concerned look again and asked how we thought we'd pick our own with the babies around (meanwhile, there are tons of already picked apples on the table behind him). I said, "oh, we will figure it out thats no problem. We have strollers and back packs..we are good...so how do we pick our own apples.
So the man gave us our bags and proceeded to explain which trees were ready to be picked. They had Johnathon apples, the best for applesauce making, and Ira red, red delicious, and yellow delicious.
We had a wonderful time picking apples. After awhile Jack was down walking around, getting covered in the dew covered freshly cut grass, as you can see in the picture he dropped his apple quite a few times :) Soraya loved it and didn't want to leave (as usual).

The next day we had apples fried in butter with cinnamon for breakfast and applesauce as a snack. Tonight will be an apple crisp per Chad's request :)
