We decided to go apple picking on the Monday of Thanksgiving, kind of crazy. Ok, really crazy!!
This particular place is on a two-lane highway with a little turn lane in the middle. Match that with a very family-friendly area, no work and great weather equals a long line on the stretch of highway as we wait for the police officer to signal us into the farm.
Either way, the boys were fantastic!
We went with my sister and my nephew who came a little later, so we went and played on the playground and went to see the animals and into the petting zoo.
Joseph wanted to go by himself!
Not a fan of hay!

Can't pass up the tractor!
After we hit up all the farm activities, we finally decided to head out to pick some apples. We hopped on the wagon and headed out to the orchard.
Andrew & Mommy on the wagon!
He was having a good time. This is his current 'cheese' face. We need to work on that!
Not sure what's going on!
We have a successful trip! We picked two bags of apples, Joseph took two down to Grandmom and Grandad (that have extra bruises after he was banging them together) and I made some apple pie bread and applesauce. Yum!!!
I love apple picking in the fall. It's such a fantastic tradition that I hope we carry on for years and years.
