Apples

It's apple season! 
A group of my church friends caravan-ed up to Oak Glen to pick yummy crisp apples. 
It just so happens to be the same orchard Romney grew up by and worked at as a teenager. 
Romney would ride his bike up to the Farm at age 14 to help give tours for field trips, cute huh?
It was fun to be there near the mountains and pick fresh organic fruit. 
We picked laundry baskets full.
It was good to be out in the sunshine...
 with our family and friends....
It is nice to have friends who are willing to lug a HEAVY baby around for you while you run W A Y far to use the bathroom...
it was darling to see the kids run from row to row with sticks and rocks...
it was cute to see kiddies helping their mommies...
It was great to chat with friends...
and it was SUPER FUN to gallup and chant HORSEY HORSEY so Miles would enjoy the rest of his stay in the bjorn!
 
We got home with baskets full...
and got to canning.
Now I'm stocked up on homemade applesauce and apple pie filling.
...and I don't even like pie...
