Apple Picking, On Apple Hill

My mom had the most fantastic idea to celebrate a marevelously warm day. APPLE PICKING IN BAYFIELD! Perfect.

It was such a great idea, it was unusally warm out and the apples are getting ready. So we headed up to Bayfield for apple picking. The boys LOVED it. They were awesome about touching the apples. They were so careful, Jackson wouldn't even touch the tree and TJ just wanted to eat the apples. Ashton helped to pick, and he was so careful not to shake the branch.
After apple picking we went to Washburn Dairy Queen, so very yummy.

Nana showing them a good apple.

Look Mom, we found some pretty apples.

Picking so carefully.

Enjoying the first bite.

Starting to fill the basket.
One full basket. Yep, that eaten apple is from TJ, he'd eat one and put the rest back in the basket.

What a fun day. Thanks Nana for your great idea!
Ashton wants to try blueberry picking next. A blueberry pie does sound very yummy.

Roxanne: You have such an adorable family. And your mom is sweeter than words! :)


Thanks Amy. It was such a nice day to be outdoors picking apples.
The boys talked about blueberry picking again this morning. So I am hoping the weather will hold out so we can do that as well!
