Apple Picking...

There's nothing more "autumnal" than picking apples on a beautiful fall day.  Every year we head over to Homestead Farm in Poolesville for our annual apple picking pilgrimage. 

Last year, Georgia loved running around the orchard tasting apples...



Fall 2012



The year prior to that, Georgia was a tad bored with the apple picking experience...



Fall 2011



This year, she was all over the place!  She was also really excited that Becky joined us for the day...



Heading into the farm



First stop, picking out a pumpkin...







"I want that one!"



Nick captured this super cute shot on his phone



Next stop, off to say hi to the animals that call the farm home....



Becky & Georgia saying hello to a friendly goat!






Two of my favorite people!!



And then it was time to find some yummy apples!















It's really helpful to have a small little person to reach some of the lower growing apples.  Georgia was a great little apple spotter!







We always try a family photo session.  Some days we're more successful than others...













Georgia loves her friend, Becky!


Not only was she a great apple picker, but Georgia did a great job of helping to push around our cart.  We voted and decided that child labor laws don't exist on farms!!
















Such a Daddy's girl...





















And after baking apple muffins, applesauce, and more appley-goodness, we still have apples leftover!
