apple10while we were in blue mountain for thanksgiving we decided to try our hand at apple picking! every fall when we’re buying fresh apples from our local market i always think how fun it would be to go apple picking. for some reason it’s just one of those things we never seem to get around to, but this year we were in the middle of ontario’s apple country so how could we not?! by the way, i took about 5,000 photos because hello, apples! and sunshine! and babies running around! and all kinds of cuteness! i tried my best to scale it down, but it was hard. so hopefully this won’t be too much photo overload for you guys.

apple6the twins are obviously a little too young to pick their own apples off the trees, but don’t let that fool you – i think they had more fun than anyone else at the entire orchard! thatcher was obsessed with all of the apples on the ground and didn’t understand why we wouldn’t let her eat them. she ran around and when she saw us picking the apples off the trees, begged me to pick her up so that she could try to grab them.

applebreck was just as happy and also didn’t quite understand that the apples on the ground were not for eating. he had a little bit of trouble walking around by himself since the ground was pretty uneven, but that didn’t stop him! he attached himself to one of us and crawled around everywhere. the giggles and screeches coming from his little mouth were so joyful and it made my heart full to see how happy they were.
