#makesmesmilemondays Apple Picking!

Yesterday we traveled to southwest Michigan with friends for our annual grand apple picking excursion. The kids hit the orchard with a wagon and huge bags that they filled up with big, beautiful, crisp apples of all varieties.

More than one apple made it into a belly instead of the wagon.
We just barely hit the orchard and the kids were already munching on the irresistible apples!

I think Chiara won the prize for the most apples eaten in a day. She ate at least three whole, giant apples!

Daniel did a good job of testing all the varieties and deciding on the best ones for apple pie baking and lunchboxes.

What a beautiful day at the orchard! Best of all we came home with a trunk filled to the brim with apples!
