Apples & Pumpkins

This morning we visited our local orchard and did a bit of apple picking and pumpkin choosing. At first the only apples we saw were too squishy, brown, or all around yucky. But we quickly figured out a few tricks and ending up bring home pounds and pounds of granny smith apples. (Yes I have a plan for all that fruit!)

Then we threw kids in a stroller and a wagon and headed down to pick out pumpkins.

Since we went towards the end of the month the choices were not as abundant, but we found a few winners. Alyssa was desperate to find a little pumpkin and most were too big for her taste. We did tell her we could buy a little tiny one at the grocery store but she kept searching. In the end she did find one that made her little heart happy.

Kylie was easily persuaded into a simple pumpkin with some green spots on it.

Before we left we spent a little time in a hay maze. Last year the girls were too scared to go in, even with Russell, but this year they were a little braver. They didn’t quite get the concept and just wanted to climb over the bails. Surprise, surprise.

It was a fun morning that we were happy to share with my parents who were visiting. We tried taking a family picture, but with three little kids it didn’t go as easily as this Momma would have liked.

My little loves…
