Apple “Picking”

Remember how I was so excited to go apple picking? We had planned all last month to go the last weekend of October; that’s when a lot of the apples we wanted were going to be ripe for picking. We got up bright and early Saturday morning and hit the road. We arrived one and a half hours later only to find out that there was a freeze earlier in the week and u-pick apples were done for the season. I was sad, very sad. But we tried to make the best of it. Instead of picking apples from a tree we picked a bag of apples from a box. They were still better apples than the ones you find in the store, at least that’s the story I’m sticking to.

We spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying the beautiful outdoors and had a nice picnic with our friends. Later that night we made fresh apple pie. It was so delicious. Oh and remember how I thought I would need to round up some friends to help us eat the whole pie? Nope, it’s already gone.
