Weekend before last we visited an apple orchard with my cousin, her husband, and their cute lil boy Cannon! It was perfect weather. Perfect. I had never been to pick apples before and it was a neat experience.
We ate fresh caramel apples before we got started. These definitely beat the caramel apples that you get in the store. So good, in fact, that I didn't even mind that my fingers were sticky for the remainder of the afternoon.
And then we all got on a wagon to head out to the orchard to pick out apples. It was beautiful! Whenever I do things like this I always gets these crazy thoughts in my head like, "Maybe we should run our own apple orchard." Then I remember reality... like the fact that I would hate doing farmwork, I know nothing about raising apple trees, live in a loft apartment with no yard for even one tree, and that I can't even keep alive a house plant. I tend to get swept away in the moment. :)
Regardless, it was a great afternoon and Cannon loved it!
This guy even had fun. He picked more apples that I did! So far I've made homemade applesauce which was deicious, and I think I still have enough apples left for an apple pie!
Sometimes the Simple Things are the best things.
