Apple Picking 2016

We've gone apple picking for the past few years and it's something I hope we continue forever :)

This year we checked out a new orchard and we loved it!  Usually the places we go to have fun activities for the kids, but this place was just apple picking. They also had a little store where you could buy apple cider donuts, jams, soups, mixes, etc and also a little stand with food. Even without the extras for the kids, they had the best time, they even said so :)

We first started out to the fields to get our apples

These 3 - they are my everything!

My hubby is always the one to put the kids on his shoulders to get the *best* apples 

Brayden snapped a pic of me and the hubs :)

Avery loved picking an apple, taking a bite, then throwing it on the ground. Thankfully there were plenty of apples to go around.


We spotted trees with those tiny cherries on them and the hubby had the smart idea of saying "you know what those are good for?" The kids said no, and he pegged them with some, and that started our little cherry fight which was the highlight of the day for the kids!

When we were all done, we enjoyed some apple cider donuts and watched the kids climb the hay. We had the best time just being together, I love days like this!
