the orchard

this past weekend my brother was in town and since it was a nice crisp fall day we headed out to the apple orchard to pick apples and enjoy the day. it was a perfect fall day and the perfect activity. we road the wagon out to the orchard and had fun picking apples high and low. mia loved finding ones that were just at her height and having papa and uncle jeff pick her up to get the ones that were a little too high for her. we all loved "sampling" an apple or two as we walked between the trees. even asher loved the apples. pete handed him one and he happily munched away while riding high in the carrier. before we knew it we had loaded our bags full of apples. jeff became the designated carrier though it took a bit of convincing to get mia to relinquish her heavy bag of red apples. jeff simply kept adding apples into her bag instead of his until she decided on her own it was too heavy to carry and handed it over. she was just too precious walking among the trees nibbling her apple to not stop and take a few shots of her. after loading our apples up it was off to the little farm to see the animals. we had quite a few animals to visit: goats, sheep, chickens, cows, llamas, pigs, bunnies, baby chicks and i don't even remember what else. mia liked feeding the goats. she wasn't too sure about the calf that wanted to suck on her finger and keep licking her hand. not too sure she liked his rough tongue. =)

then it was on to the little store where it was apple cinnamon donuts and cider for all of us. yum! what a perfect fall day.

Yep, that's sounding quite idyllic! I'm looking forward to visiting the orchard to get yummy apples. Mmm...apple pie...

Oh--and I have a green turtleneck just like Mia's! Love it.

We went to an orchard as well this weekend. Ours wasn't quite as beautiful a memory as yours was, but it was a perfect day in MN, too.
