Apple Picking







We went to an apple orchard Saturday morning.
It was a perfect fall day.
 
It was actually Brady's idea to go...I love when that happens.
He's not full of ideas and suggestions too often...so when it happens, we take full advantage!
 
 
This tree was in the parking lot...isn't it beautiful?
 
 
 
 
 
We picked...and sampled....
 
 
and took lots of pictures!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
We tried kiwi berries for the first time....they are so good!
You just pop them into your mouth like grapes.
We picked a few and then bought some to go.
 
 
 
We also tried some other goodies.  I had an apple cider donut
that might have been the best donut ever.  I made pancakes for lunch today so I could try my pumpkin spice syrup.  Boy was it good!  I will be trying to find a recipe to make my own.
 
 
 
This afternoon I made apple crisp. 
 
 
It was good....as you can see I have more ice cream on there than I do apple crisp!  I've never been a big fan of warm apples....so I'm not a good judge, but Eric loved it.  I need to google more apple recipes because we are never going to be able to eat all of the apples we picked!
 
Here's the recipe I used:
 
 

 Such a great weekend...I hope your's was a good one too!

How fun! We went a few weeks back but is was still hot here and apple picking in the high 90s is not fun!
Pumpkin spice syrup...yum!!

Hi Kerri,
How fun to see that you and your family were doing the same thing we did, on the exact same day! We also had a great time. What fun photos of all of you! Your hair is darling!!! That apple crisp looked so good. I am making applesauce tomorrow. Genny made some today and said it was great. I will be using the recipe she used. I am sure she will post it.
The tree was beautiful in the lot!!!
XO Kris

i have wanted to go apple picking for years but I guess there aren't any places around us. I love your hair is it lighter than before? It is so pretty, well you are pretty and your hair makes you more so. Anyway, I love it. I haven't ever heard of kiwi berries, I'm am going to have to look for some. Can I just say, Brady looks so cute in his vest. I try to get my kids to wear vests and they won't do it. Weirdos. He looks so LL beanish, I love it!

I'm really wanting an apple donut, or a pumpkin spice one...but I'm trying to be good! Maybe I will treat myself to one soon. The colors on your trees there are stunning. I have never had kiwi berries, but I think I would love them. What a fun day! Oh, and your hair looks cute!

Your hair? It's darling! Is that all business "back-to-school" hair?

Enjoy fall. We spent three days in MS and wow. New England in fall--nothing like it!

Yummo!! Love the pictures! :)

Stef said...

How fun! And I am with you...like the melted ice cream more than the cooked apples. Love the pictures of your family and the fall colors. My fav!

Jen said...

Apple crisp...oh my!
Looks like a good time. A perfect outing to celebrate fall.

What a great way to spend a fall day! We used to pick apples too, but now I just head to the orchard get them already picked. This was not a great year for apples in Ohio. They are small and not as flavorful as usual. Yours look great on the trees! Nothing beats fresh picked fruit and your cobbler looks very tastey!

Remember when I was trying to convince y'all to move here to Colorado? Forget it. I want to move by you. You have all the cool stuff around your place.
