Apple Picking

We all went down to my dad’s farm yesterday to see the cabin he and my step-mom are building, to visit with her family, and to go apple picking 🙂

The cabin is amazing! They have done so much work on it. The kids can’t wait for it to be done enough to spend thev night there!

The kids LOVED picking apples…

And with the tractor (my dad thought up this genius plan!):

After we finished with the apples, we checked out the barn. It is gigantic! It was interesting to see how it looked all fixed up and empty vs. full of animals, straw bales, and junk when I was a kid.

We stayed into the evening to play games and have dinner. The kids enjoyed tinkering with the piano and got pretty good at making music that didn’t hurt my ears.

Applesauce is simmering while I write this. The 7 qt.s on the stove barely made a dent in the humongous rubbermade bin we have. It will be a very apple-y kind of week.

Our house should smell good 🙂
