The Apple Orchard

It's been a long time dream of mine to own an apple tree.  I don't know why really, perhaps it's simply because I like the idea of being able to step out of my house and pick a ripe, juicy apple fresh off of the tree. Someday I will make this dream a reality, but in the meantime I settled for the next best thing, going to an apple orchard with my girls.

It's funny how much I find myself depending on other people...I almost didn't go to the orchard this year...again, because well I couldn't find anyone to go with.  The thought of driving a long distance alone with the girls seemed daunting, let alone handling two little ones by myself once I got there.  But something inside of me this year just said to hell with it!  I'am not letting another fall go by with me just thinking about it, I was going to do it.

I'm glad I did.

Heading to pick apples from the wrong (unripe) tree's.

We had a great time, it didn't matter that half the apples we picked were from the unripened side of the orchard.  They still tasted sweet to us.

Some of the apples were as big as little bits head!

Checking Apple picking off our fall bucket list.
