Apple Picking

Every year, our kind neighbors tell us to come pick apples from their trees.
We've been picking apples off and on at their ranch for probably 20 years...  happy times, and happy memories for us.  

"Hey let's go again, you forgot to take us with you the first time."


  1. What great pictures MOM!!! I can't believe how big Eddie is now! He has grown so much! It is especially nice to see Dad! I miss you all so much! The apples look delightful and it does bring back memories! Toby and Shorty are soooooo cute!! It looks like they are leaning against each other lol!

  2. It looks like you all had a great time. My family is planning a trip to an apple orchard this weekend. We can't wait!

  3. How blessed you are to be able to go pick so many apples! I would love to be able to do that and fill up the freezer with apple pies for the winter and jars of apple sauce, mmmm!

    We don't have any orchards round here but then we do have the lovely strawberry & raspberry farms in the summer so I suppose that's just as good.

    You must show us what you do with all those apples.

  4. I second what Kirtsteen said. I can't WAIT to see what all you do with all those wonderful apples!!! I think I would slice them really thin and make apple cake with maple butter. OH OH OH so good!!
    Thank you for taking so many pics and taking us along! looks like a great time! Love the pic of Ol Blue in the background. Like being transported back in time.
    Love you!!!!

  5. Elizabeth, don't those two little mutts just crack you up? I remember when you guys were all little doing the apples; it was the big dogs that wanted to go with us back then. its hard to believe how quickly all that time has gone by.

    Tiffany, I love that you guys are going to pick apples this weekend. It is undoubtedly that time of year. I would love to see some of your recipes, and yours Kirsteen and Danielle; in fact, I think I am going to need that apple cake with maple butter recipe Danielle, I'll share some of my apples with you if you want to come and get them, and bring your recipe. I do plan to post a few recipes, but love new ideas.

  6. Oh Pam, what gorgeous, gorgeous photos. And what an abundant supply of apples! That's amazing.
    Oh the dogs.....my darlings! They are adorable.
    What a lovely post.... I almost felt I was there. Oh - that was me dreaming. However, I was still 'taken' there, so thank you for that!
    Love, Anne x
