We finally got around to going apple picking. We found this really great place about 20 minutes from here. First we went to pick out a pumpkin for each of the boys. We let them pick their own. I figured Nicholas would get the biggest pumpkin he could see but I think he wanted to pick it up and carry it himself. Both pumpkins are on the small side but I am fine with that. Then we went into the store they have there and got some apple cider and apple cider donoughts. I think that was the first time either of my kids have had those. They LOVED them. Then it was off to the apple orchard. We were hoping to get a large variety of apples but when we got arrived the saleperson told us there were only 2 kinds of apples. Staymen and Red delicious. I was a little disappointed but I guess we just have to make sure we go earlier next year. The kids had a great time walking through the orchard and picking apples. Jake even got into it. We even found a little catepiller that Nicholas held for a minute. It was a really fun day. We ended up getting a TON of apples. So far we have dried some, make 2 apple crisp and 2 apple pies. Plus the kids eat at least one everyday. Now we just have to carve the pumpkins.

I love this one!! Jake would find them and Nicholas would pick them.
Chad and I have been together for over 10 years and married for 8. We have 2 boys. Nicholas is 6 and in 1st grade. He LOVES Star Wars especially Darth Vader. Jacob is 4 and is in preschool. He loves anything his big brother loves. He is very funny. Chad just started a new job as an Engineer working in the semi-conductor (nano technology) industry. He is also in the Army reserve. I am a stay at home mom and I love being home with my boys. They bring me such great joy.
