A couple of weeks ago we went to the apple orchard. Jones loved the whole experience - picking, the wagon, the playground, apple cider slushies, etc. Thea was indifferent but she's a baby. Of course it was hotter than it should have been for the end of September and the apples were overpicked. But I managed to get a bushel and we have apples for days. And I've made dried apples and apple crisp and I am planning on a pie and maybe apple butter as well. Little jones almost everyday snags an apple from the bag. It'a the start of a fun tradition.
