Apple Picking '08
Today E had off from school, so we decided to make it a family day. Ed took off from work, and after lunch we all headed over to the orchard.
We started off by taking a wagon out to the orchard.
K's cheeks are red because the sun was so hot! I was wishing I had brought sunblock and hats for everyone. Oh well. Anyway, when we got dropped off, we made our way to the Staymans.The trees were loaded!
We love these apples for their crisp, tart-sweet taste.
They are delicious to eat, as well as to put in pies and other baked treats. We ended up picking 24 lbs!!
We then took the wagon-ride back. N was very interested in the tractor that was pulling us.
I was interested in how K's hair looked strawberry-blond!!
And I thought these two pairs of boots made a cute picture.
Back at the market, there were so many different kinds of gourds. Here is a medley of them.
Along with some of the biggest pumpkins we have ever seen!!
We then headed home, happy, but tired.
