Apple (and Pear) picking

Last weekend we took a trip up to Marist to visit Aunt Nin at school, and while we were there we took the kids apple picking. Colin had a great time, and they even had my childhood favorite available to pick (Cortland apples). We came home with a ton a fruit that I am looking forward to creating some wonderful treats out of. Colin prefers his straight up and in the living room! Here are some photos of the event. By happy coincidence Katie was also visiting Lauren that weekend so she joined us too. Fun times!

Reaching for the perfect pear!

He loved it when the leaves stayed on the stem!

The apples required two hands to pull off the tree!

Sean gets Meghan in on the action. She slept through most of the picking.

We pulled her out to let her cool off. Her and Daddy were pretty hot in the 80 degree heat!

Goodbye Aunt Nin!

Goodbye Aunt Katie.

The weather was beautiful, we did not go picking but ----------- PaPa took me on a special surprise date and we did buy some (on our travels) and one of the kind we bought were the hardest and sourest apples we have ever had (the were suppose to be red delicious) and from a farm stand to boot, oh well, the date was fun, fun, fun. xxoo GG
