Last month we loaded the kids in the car and made the annual trip to Elegant Farmer for an afternoon of apple picking. We just adore that place with the cute little shop of homemade goods, beautiful produce and friendly staff. This year it was much warmer than usual with temps close to 80!
It really was a beautiful sunny day and the orchards were still full of apples to pick, and not very crowded at all. The kids ran about giggling away having a ball together. The sight of those two holding hands and frolicking through the apple trees, well it just made me so happy. There was tree climbing, apple eating, apple throwing, and of course apple picking. We took a decent bunch home with us too which the kids snacked on for days and also became a yummy apple crisp.
My heart always feels full doing these types of things with that little family of mine. Watching the kids together and Mike with them, it just makes me feel at peace and like I’m must be doing something right to be blessed with these three in my life. They are the apple of my eye.
