This Little Miggy Stayed Home: Apple Picking

Apple Picking

My favorite thing about this picture is I didn't edit anything other than the size.  
The sky really was that blue and the grass really was that green.  

We returned to a long held family tradition of apple picking this past weekend.  While it looks hot and sunny in this picture, there was still a chill in the air and the weather has cooled down significantly since then.  Fall.  Anyway, apple picking was something we did in New York and our first time around in Cincinnati, but not so much in Texas.  It's not a thing there.  It felt good to go again.  Being so busy these days means that we could spend every waking minute of every weekend trying to get the house together.  And sometimes I want to.  I really want a cozy, put together house to hunker down in this winter.  But we also need time to just be us, spend time together and put the stress of our current life on the back burner.  It may not be much, but it felt like us.  And that felt good.

    Wow it looks so beautiful there! I'm having sweater weather envy :) So that baby zuzu! Oh my goodness, look at all the chunky cuteness! cutest family ever! This is Anita by the way. (i'm on Mark's comp :)

  2. Love it! Love you all! Great pics Webbs.

  3. Next trip pumpkin patch. It's a big event in Ohio. Love the family picture. The new baby is just as adorable as your other two girlies.

    Can you just go apple picking? We don't have anywhere like that. We have p-y-o strawberry and blueberry farms during summer, where my children ALWAYS ignore the 'do not eat until you have paid' signs and I feel bad and always tell them to double weigh a random container.

    Gorgeous post! And it IS a thing here in TX :) , just not in SA (though you can pick peaches and berries in Fredericksburg). We would go when the kids were little when we lived in Lubbock. Loving Lamp's leggings!

  6. That baby looks so happy with her apple! My family also went apple picking over the weekend -- my kids are older (16, 14 & 11) but they love our yearly excursion just as much as when they were small. Good call to punt the housework and have some fun.
