We went with one of my best friends, Jeremy and his friend, Tyler.
We had such a good day. It was filled with sunshine and lots of laughter at all the antics.
I love going apple picking but hadn't managed to go in a few years.
We had tried to go last year with Jeremy, but the farm we went to didn't have apple picking during the week when we tried to go.
But this year, we got lucky because Jeremy wanted to go again and we were able to coordinate for a Sunday morning when apple picking is always in full swing.
And it's even better because Baros had NEVER been apple picking before. I was so excited to share one of my favorite fall activities with him. Together we knocked it off our Fall Bucket List!
We went to a place in upstate New York about 45 minutes away. We spent the car ride alternating between chatting and sing-alongs so by the time we got to the crowded farm we were in high spirits. It was lovely with green and hints of red and gold. I was so happy to be in the foliage but it was so green still while we were there! It feels like it took forever for the leaves to change colors this year!
It was so beautiful and colorful! I loved being out in nature for the day.
|So many apples on the ground!|
|But a lot on the trees too!|
I had so much fun with the boys!
We spent the morning finding the best apples left on the trees.
And Baros picked his first apple EVER!
|The perfect apple!|
|Going for it|
|Trying to get it!|
|Trying to get some yummy apples!|
|Waiting for me to toss down some apples!|
|Peeking through the branches|
|Chilling with the best apples|
|Climbing is my fun time!|
We may have even gotten too many apples... since the bag broke! But it cause even more laughter and fun!
|About 30 seconds before the bag broke!|
|Broken bag and sad apples!|
|Make-shifting a solution|
|And this is how we do!|
|Sexy beast right there!|
|Selfies with good cameras are challenging, buttt I did it!|
|We had SUCH a beautiful day!|
|He picked the perfect one!|
|We even made friends with a beautiful puppy to play with!|
|Mostly green... but I see some orange and red peeking through|
|Pretty flowers and bumble bee!|
|The perfect apple!|
And then once we were ready, we headed to the Palisades Mall for some fun and quick shopping. We even picked up some Halloween goodies to start our costume process. Which... eventually I'll post about! <3
