We recently took a little trip with some friends to a nearby orchard to pick apples. The kids and I have had this trip on our Fall Fun List for the past 2 years and inevitably, someone gets sick and we are out of pocket just long enough to miss the apple picking season. Not this year baby!
It also brought back a lot of special memories for me as well. My grandparents had a farm with hundreds of fruit trees when I was a little girl and I have wonderful memories from that farm.
She had to wear her boots because mommy was wearing hers....precious.
This led into a wonderful conversation.
Ahhhhhh.....so thankful. :)
Now, what to do with all of these apples...PLENTY!
Check out some great recipes:
Apple Crisp (I used apples instead of the blueberries & left out the walnuts-YUMMY!)
Also- bake the apples in the oven, slice them and dip them in peanut butter or caramel, juice them, or take a big ole' bite out of them the old fashion way!
Enjoy the day and don't miss the beautiful moments happening around you!
