Apple Picking

We had our annual apple picking outing at Smolak Farms in late September. It was a beautiful warm and sunny day for it. The only problem was that the apples were pretty scarred (maybe from a rough winter?). We had to work extra hard to find apples with the fewest blemishes.

We were joined by Nonna, Papa, Auntie Laura, and Bridget. This made our outing that much more enjoyable! Before they all arrived we started off checking out the farm’s pumpkins.

Despite the poorer quality apples we still managed to fill our bag with plenty of fruit for apple pie, crisp, muffins, sauce, and just plain eating. Plus, the girls had a blast as always. This was Levi’s first apple picking experience. He slept through most of it, but once he woke up we were able to help him pick his own apple.
