Today we went with our homeschool group to go apple picking. This orchard is 8 miles from my house and I never knew it was there!! The older gentleman who owns it was very nice! We started off at the pear tree, which served to confuse Reece a great deal: "I thought we were going apple picking!" LOL
Riley is right next to the owner, holding the other picking stick contraption!
Here are the apple pickers! I don't think any of these are my children though! LOL We had 17 children in attendance. My camera was acting up, so I didn't get all of the shots I wanted. I took some video with my Flip, so maybe I can pull a picture or two from it later!
This is $10 worth of apples!! I wish I had known this place was so close to my home! We will definitely be going there again next year, earlier in the season.
Another shot of the apples... I'm just overwhelmed at the number of apples we got for the price!
The girls couldn't wait to dig in! I was really shocked, because they don't look as pretty as the ones from the grocery store or as big. Austin won't try one, yet, but I'm not going to push it!
I guess I ought to be googling 'apple recipes'! The girls really want apple pie... does anyone have a SIMPLE, yummy apple pie recipe to share? Simple as in put apples into a premade pie crust and bake? LOL
