Apple Picking

I can already tell this is going to be something my mom wishes she had been here for . . . last Monday we went apple picking in a nearby orchard. This is something I've wanted to do since living out east. . . it's just a very fall-ish, New England-y kind of thing to do. We had a great day and it was a lot of fun. The only down side was that instead of being a nice, crisp fall day it was actually a hot, humid and sticky indian summer day. We still had a lovely time. Here is some photographic evidence of our beautiful day.


  1. Awww! I love the pic of your little pumpkin in the pumpkin patch.

  2. Dude, does the Bean's hat come in my size??? I love her outfit.

    Out of curiosity, how much were the apples a pound and what kind were they?

  3. I love it. I would love to go apple picking out here, it reminds me of my dad and home. We miss you guys we will have to get together

  4. We will let you have one of Pen's prints for free but you have to come to queens to get it. hope we see you soon!

  5. Hi A & B - I have been following your blog for a few weeks now - it's pretty awesome! I don't quite know how I stumbbled onto it? I am LDS and living in S.Africa. My husband and I are trying to start something like this for ourselves - but I'm afraid my/our writing skills are not that good - plus our lives are not as interesting as yours...
    Anyways - just wanted to say - thanks for the blog... would love to know what the little Beans' name is... I'm not a freak - promise! Would love to share some info with you about myself...

    Hamba Kahle (go well)

  6. Ivg--welcome! Thanks so much for the compliment and I'm glad you enjoy our blog. You should definitely start your own blog! I view it as a fun way to share you life with friends and family.
    Sorry but we don't want to share too much information about our daughter over the internet, so you'll just have to know her as "the bean." I'm sure you understand, we just want to be careful about safety issues. Thanks again and come back anytime!


    This me...
    Perhaps when I'm a little more confident I will send you my blog addy...

  8. Tiffany-

    The apples were 85 cents a pound and they had many varieties: granny smith, fuji, red delicious, and other more exotic types I can't remember.
