Picking Apples

On Friday, we had the opportunity to go apple picking with my sister's family. Ben had to do some computer jobs after work and wasn't able to attend. We had some fun, but sure wished Daddy could have been there!

My sister, Dana, found out about an apple orchard near/past new Plymouth, and we all decided to go. For 20 cents a pound, we thought we should take advantage of the low price and make some applesauce.

Hayden really enjoyed the apple picking... even when we were leaving, he insisted on filling up his bucket before he could leave.

All of the kids, minus Paisley, in the apple trees!

After apple picking, we decided to go for pizza in Emmett. Dana and Bill have family friends in Emmett who own a pizza joint (Husky Pizza, I believe...???) Ashleigh and Zach came with along with us, and we tried to get a picture of all of us in the car... Ady didn't make it into the picture...

While driving down the road, the car grew quite quiet. I looked back and this is what I found (no, i didn't take the picture while driving... Ashleigh did) All of the kids enjoy multiple apples. We had a fun time, eating pizza, and apples, and enjoying each other company. Plus, we picked over 500 pounds of apples within 45 minutes! I think we accomplished what we had set out to do!
