Super Saturday: Apple Picking

Today we got to try something new. We went apple picking! There’s a cute orchard not too far from us, and we decided it was a great day to check it out. We do pick your own pumpkins every year, but we’ve never done the pick your own apples. Anyway, we had an absolute blast! We were having so much fun that we didn’t even realize how many apples we picked. It ended up being 25 pounds of apples. That’s a LOT of apples!!! We picked a few pumpkins as well. I got some pretty cute pictures of Liam while we were there. He had so much fun. He ran up and down the rows talking about the different kinds of apples, and how huge some of them were. 🙂

We got home and sorted all the apples because we ended up picking 5 different kinds. After sorting all the apples, I washed them and laid them on the counter to dry. We talked about what we wanted to do with all of them. My husband and I decided on apple dumplings, and Liam said he wanted to make some homemade applesauce! We also kept quite a few to eat! 🙂 Lets just say tomorrow will be a fun filled day of baking! I’m sure my house is going to smell like an apple factory. 😀 I’ll be sure to get some pictures and let y’all know how it went!!
