Apple Picking Charlottesville Style!

Man-o-man, the weather has been a-maz-ing lately. To celebrate that amazing-ness we went apple picking! I have a ton of recipes that I've been wanting to try and we needed a family adventure!

It was so fun! Bastian loved snatching the apples off the trees and the ground. We had a tough time convincing him to leave the gross ones behind. 

All that we had to do to entertain Gabriel was to hand him an apple! He didn't want to eat it, he was happy just holding it! 

We discovered that the apple catcher on a stick thing is totally not necessary when you have a sasquatch for  a husband and a daredevil for a child!  

We found a nice couple to take a family shot for us!

After we filled our bags of awesome Braeburn Apples and paid for them, Tony and Bastian decided that they wanted Cider and donuts. While we waited for them we sat on a deck and we were able to see the coolest view of the mountains! 

And when we got home, we started washing and cooking apples. We've just finished our first batch of applesauce and we have a batch of fruit leather in the oven!
