Apple Picking Rocks!
Wee! We love wagon rides!
The Russells and The Fourniers have started an annual tradition - to go apple picking! We went to Chudleighs Apple Farm in Milton on a beautiful October day. The sun was shining and the air was crisp. So were the apples! And holy cow, I've never seen apples so big!
Picking Mutsu Apples
There was so much to do at Chudleigh's once we were mobile. At first, we thought it would be wise to put all the kiddies in their strollers, only to find out that they wouldn't let us go on the wagon ride to pick apples (and we didn't want to leave our fancy strollers parked at the stroller depot), so we went back to our cars, repacked our belongings, and put all the kiddies in slings.
What do we all have in common? That's right, we're all wearing blue jeans! ;)
I actually thought people went to Chudleighs to pick apples but I was so wrong! There are farm animals and wagon rides. Lots to see and do! But the main event for us was getting to pick the biggest mutsu apples we've ever seen! It was a fun day and we can't wait to do it again next year!
There's more apple than tree in this photo!
It was a fun day for the Fournier's and Russell's! We got lots of apples to make apple crisp, apple dip, and apple cider! Yum! Can't wait to do it again next year minus the baby slings and strollers!
Two mama's and a baby!
