Last week we had "Field Trip Friday" and went apple picking at Apple Hill
. Last year was our first time actually picking the apples and it was such a memorable experience for everyone we decided to go again. This year my mom was able to join us. The specific grower we visited was Pine 'O Mine
. They grow granny smith and golden delicious apples and charge $1 a pound for the apples. There are other farms/ranches that are much more commercialized, but with that comes larger crowds.
It was an absolutely beautiful day and the kids had some fun on the tire swings.

|Here she is!|
Now it's time for some apple picking! How do you pick an apple? Twist, twist, pull.
|James was in charge of the box. He loves having a job to do.|
|Alex looks like he wants to bite into that apple.|
|I wonder what was on that apple? John looks concerned.|
|Everyone picking golden delicious apples.|
Here's our loot. I love coming home and making homemade goodies: applesauce, caramel
to go with the apples, apple fritters
, applesauce cake with cream cheese frosting, and apple crisp
to name a few. I will be posting recipes this week. Yum!
Can you tell that Fall is my favorite season? What are some traditions that your family takes part in every year?
