Apple Orchard

Some scenes from our day at the apple orchard!
(except this 1st one :o) it's from another, smaller orchard) I have to add how lucky I feel
to have an apple orchard within 15 mins of my home
My little ones in their mama made apple attire
all set for a picniccuties on their handmade picnic blanket made by their creative mama
as if the apples weren't sweet enough...the farm had us candy them up :Da hayride with friends
lesson learned: sit next to your friend with an apple lolli
and you'll end up with a sticky arm :o)

get one get one!!
b/c it's fun! and b/c fresh apples are oh so good
