The Apples of My Eye

On Saturday we went apple picking with some friends at a new (to us) farm.  

The littles were not putting on their best photo faces as we had just been in the car for an hour and a half, and they wanted to run to the awesome playground beside them!

After playing for a bit, their smiles were more genuine.  Except for one.  I'm looking at you, Declan.

You have to pay for your bag based on how many people you bring into the farm, but then once you're in, there are tractor rides and animals to pet and rows and rows of glorious apples.

This is just one small section of all the apple trees they had.  And the place is so clean and labelled nicely.  You knew exactly what you were picking and it was so big that you felt like you were there all alone (even though there really were tons of people there!)

Brothers helping brothers.

We met up with some friends, who took this picture for us.  If I had planned better, I would have dressed the kids in some nicer clothes and made it a Christmas Card photo.  Oh well, you live, you learn, you get mismatched photos.

Declan's buddy, Andrew, was there.  They are so cute together!

Declan has been reeeeeeally attached to me lately.  But I kind of love it :)

Xander said "This is the best day ever! Playground, goats, apple picking and donuts!" The apple cider donuts were too good to get a photo of.

If you get the chance to come to New England soon, make apple picking your top priority!  After all the snow we had this winter, the apple harvest is the best it's ever been.  Glad something good came out of that terrible winter :)


  1. Such cute pictures! Looks like a great day in the orchard!

  2. It is just starting to be apple season out here. I can't wait.

  3. This looks like so much fun!

  4. This is something we have never done before. Looks like it was a great time for all.
