It’s Apple Picking Time | Mommy and Me Monday | 346th ed


With the girls on break and Grammi in town, we needed an adventure for the weekend. Thank goodness the weather cooperated. We were wearing sweaters and it was sunny! (The last time we went apple picking in 2013, we got soaked and in 2010, it was really hot and gosh those two bigs were little!). Apparently, we go every three years. But, I’m out to change that.

This time we went to an orchard that allowed us to eat apples straight from the trees. B loved this and I’m sure sampled all of the 52 varieties they had growing on the orchard.

E is quite the apple lover as well, and thought it was very cool to pick the apples where they grew. She told us she was going to tell all of her friends back at school that she went to “pick apples off the tree at the farm.”

I requested a picture of all of my girls. At least I can get some points for them all looking in the general same direction. In 20 years, I’d like this to be duplicated, girls, please!

And, I got a “we need sunglasses for the kids”… I mean, family picture, too. (Grammy’s in this one, too…can you spy her?)

On the way back to the tractor after picking our giant bag full of apples and lugging it around for a bit, B wanted back up in the carrier. I happily obliged.

Grammi had been trying to get a picture with all of the girls, but some of them weren’t having it…I finally got the best I could get on the tractor ride back to the store.

We enjoyed our Fall Break and had a great visit with Grammi. Admittedly, I’m also thankful it’s back to school this week, and hoping the teachers enjoyed their breaks, too! 

What were you up to this week?

Since the button code stopped working many moons ago, I took it out. But, if you are adding your link to my link list, please, as a courtesy, add a link back to my site so people can explain and link up themselves if they’d like. After all, that’s the point of the link up!

It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids.

  1. So fun! I wish there was somewhere here we could go pick fruit. I think there is a strawberry picking farm but it’s always SO hot.
