Apple Picking

We went apple picking today. We had so much fun that the camera batteries died. I'll post pictures tomorrow. We picked 40# of apples and roughly 5 POUNDS of red raspberries, yellow raspberries and blackberries. My kids LOVE to berry pick! (Grandpa in the woods would LOVE THEM!) I think TJ ate his weight in berries and it's already beginning to know what I mean. icky! Tuck had a crab apple and a beacon apple and a few berries, so he shouldn't be too bad. I just finished canning raspberry jam, I pulled out the blackberries to make apple/blackberry pie and have a few red and yellows left for cereal and/or smoothies. The apples I'll wait for tomorrow or Monday to work on, but I see pie and sauce in my future!

We took Rugby's friend Brandon and his dad with us and I'm so glad that they could come along! It was nice to have the extra adult eyes with all the kids! TJ stuck to Jaimie like glue and I think he liked that, too.

Pictures to come!!
