Apple picking time is here… and we have had some fun with Nathan and Himilce and their trio with us to make a day of it.
I know, this is a post about apple picking… but they're my grandchildren, what can I say, they are the heart and joy of any activity… including apple picking… so I had to post that prologue.
This year, we went up to Penrose, a town about an hour from where we live, and enjoyed their Apple Festival and also went to a Farm which was open to the public for apple picking. We all went with apple pickers, and baskets and loaded them full.
This is the Sweet Pea, the Sugar Bug, the Cupcake, the Precious Little Sweet Heart, our One and Only granddaughter…. and she is loving the taste testing of apples as we pick.
She is also the only one of us who was appropriately attired in "apple tights", with "apple red" shoes, "apple red" belt and "apple red" bow. She stood out like a sweet apple dumpling in the midst of the apple orchard.
With Apple pickers in hand, the Apple pickers got busy.
There were quite a few taste testers… and the verdict is…
We got our bushel baskets all filled up.
Its time to go home for dinner.
Apple recipes coming soon….
Have a lovely week everyone!!!
