This fall I visited Applewood Orchard a couple times. Chuck and I took the girls there one day and I also visited with some friends from MOMS Club. It was so much fun and I know we will make this a tradition every fall! (Chuck took so many great pictures that it was hard to cut back. So I’m sorry for all the pictures!)
Maddie liked carrying the basket around. It was still empty at this point. The orchard had samples of apples as you arrived. Maddie picked a crab apple. She loved that tiny little apple. Before we knew it, she had eaten the entire thing!
Maddie was really excited to pick out the apples. We taught her that she had to twist them a couple times then pull them off. After one or two, she had it down! She loved picking apples!
She just looked so darn cute standing in the isle of the apple trees!
It wasn’t a great season for raspberries, but Maddie and I had fun picking some anyway. Maddie wanted to eat them all as we picked them. The hardest part was making sure we picked some that weren’t swarmed with bees.
Chuck took Maddie on a hayride. She loved it!
While they went on a hayride, I hung out with this little sweet pea!
There was also a little evergreen tree maze. Chuck took Maddie through it and apparently she really liked the dog statue that was inside.
There was a big pile of hay bales. Maddie liked climbing on them and collecting small pieces of hay.
Chuck took some pictures of me with the girls!
And a nice man offered to take our picture. Too bad the girls look like we are torturing them!
