An apple a day keeps the doctor away...

Last week my friend Anne and I took our kids to the Apple Farm. The weather was 80 degrees and sunny so we took advantage....this is rare for fall in Minnesota! It was a fun day and something I like to do with the boys every year. Next up Anne is going to show me how to make an apple pie. I know, I know what kind of ignorant person doesn't know how to make an apple pie? Well it's not one of Weston's favorites, so I've just never attempted it. Plus, she has a handy dandy tool that peels and cores the apples really fast! So I guess Weston is going to have to develop a taste for apple pie soon!

Here's all the kids in the orchard. You try getting
6 kids to all smile and look at the camera at once!

Searching for the perfect apple.

Nice picks boys!

I don't know what it is about goats that kids seem
to enjoy, but this was their favorite part of the day!

Of course you can't go to the apple farm without
visiting the bakery! Our favorite is the apple cider

How fun and what a wonderful past time and memory creating experience for you and the boys. Ang, your not the only one who doesn't know how to make apple pie ;). I won't even attempt, Kelly's Mom makes the most mouth watering apple pie. She has a secret to the apples. Have fun making the pie, take pics, and would love to see it as your next blog post.
