We welcomed fall with open arms this weekend with apple pickin', fires and homemade apple sauce. I opted out of making cider this year because it was just such a pain last time, so we picked some up before we left the orchard instead.
We've all managed to pass around the sniffles and sneezes so the fresh air was nice to get out in. It's been chilly (for me.. which is mid 60's) in the mornings, but it was really refreshing. I guess you could say that Oregon is definitely rubbing off on me. Rae loves riding in her wagon and it was adorable to see both girls in there this time.
Rae was alllll over the place. She'd pick one apple.. take a bite, pick a new apple.. take a bite. Thankfully, the owners of the orchard said to sample as many as we wanted so I didn't feel too awful about all her sampling. We turned the corner at one point and she spotted purple apples and you would've thought she spotted a unicorn. Trust me, I'm still hearing about them.
We always go for the honey crisps. They are my FAVORITE and so much cheaper than buying them at the store. We picked a bunch of those and tried to take a family picture with the tripod, but little did I know I forgot the piece that attaches the camera to the tripod and self timer was a disaster so we got what we could.
Bre babe had her fair share in taste testing apples also. We came home with plenty of honey crisps, crimson red's, gala apples and another that I can't remember the name. I made a little bit of applesauce in the crockpot and I think tomorrow I'll let the girls have it in the morning. I wish the u-picks were a little closer so we could make it there more often, but I did just do a photoshoot with a family at a closer orchard that I'm excited to go back and see what they offer in their little shop.
Happy Monday! We'll be knee deep in tissues and hopefully making it to the gym today, eh.
