Apple Picking

This was our first year to go apple picking!  It was fun to do something that was a first for not only Graham, but also Josh, Jackson and me!  We headed to Stribling Orchard about an hour away, and it was beautiful!  It was definitely a good pick (no pun intended)!

Two good apples!
The orchard ran out of pickers so we were limited to the apples that were low enough to reach by Josh picking up Jackson--they were a good team!

This view is pretty good, but it got even better!
And, some apples we reached by Jackson STANDING on Josh's shoulders!

We came home with a HUGE bag of apples that included about six types of apples!  I immediately set about baking my first ever pie with homemade crust, no less!  It was a rather chaotic feeling process, but the result was worth it (at 11:30pm on Sunday night because the pie had to rest for FOUR hours)!!!
