Apples to Apples

Apple picking is one of the highlights of the year for us.

This girl is ready to go!  She grabbed the wagon on her own and hightailed it out of there.
Here we are!  Aren't they cute?
Bucket heads!
They are so cute...I just can't get over how cute they are!

Here's Emma's first apple
Here's Cal's first apple

Okay this is so cute!  I love these series of photos...while Nick and I were picking apples, you know, the actual work, they kids took the wagon up the hill in the background and then would come back down...

They would go up....push and pull, push and pull.
And then they would come tumbling down the hill like Jack and Jill...sometimes quite literally! Nick and I just held one another and listened to their squeals and watched them.  I praise God that they are able to live perfect childhoods...what a gift He has given them.
Here's Emma's basket!

Here we are almost reado to go.  We had one more basket too but we couldn't get it to fit...50 pounds of apples folks makes for one happy Mommy :)
Check out the size of these apples!  They are huge!
Pin It!

WHAT are you going to do with 50 pounds of apples?

Awesome!! Have you ever made apple cider vinegar? It is super easy and works great for soaking grains (a cheap and easy way to do gluten free!!) Let me know if you are interested.
