I FINALLY talked Troy into taking us up to Carter Mountain Orchard a few weekends ago. And by FINALLY, it's only taken me about 3 to 4 years. I never had to go apple picking when I was younger, we had a HUGE apple tree in our backyard. I was so upset when we moved and we couldn't take the apple tree with us. Dad tried growing a new one in our new house, but they never lasted.
So a few Saturday's ago we headed north to Carter Mountain after my 8 mile training run and Owen's soccer game. We were hoping the kids would nap on the way up, but that didn't happen. We had some good friends go with us which made picture taking so much more fun!
They had two types of apples that we could pick (and yes, I don't remember the types...but one was green and one was red...does that count?). O wanted to pick the green ones first, so we headed down that path...
Then O found the ones he could reach himself...
About 5-10 apples later, Troy and Brynnleigh showed up....she was very excited to pick some apples (well actually to pick one apple, and eat it!)
We actually ended up running into one of Owen's friends from preschool so we didn't get any "red" apple picking photos, but Owen picked plenty with his friends while Mommy talked! We then paid for our apples and managed to bypass the apple doughnuts that are fried in straight lard!
O was so excited to carry his apples!
So a big thanks to the Romero's for having fun hanging out with our crazy kiddos...(which by the way our kids LOVE you both!)
And thanks for taking these awesome pictures of our family...we have so few of the four of us.
