How 'bout them apples!

A couple weeks ago, I went apple picking with little E, her mom SK and her baby brother who was all cozied up in his stroller.

Rough season for the apple farmers.  The warm balmy weather in the Spring, followed by a frost destroyed so much of the province's crop.  Some lost 80%.  So we were lucky that our favourite fruit picking farm still had a pick-your-own program.  Love a tasty apple fresh off the tree!
The apples were small, but they are absolutely delicious.  This is a blurry photo of the most perfect one we found, gingerly grasped from its solitary hiding spot up near the top of a tree.
Now weeks later, we are still enjoying our haul.  Looking forward to next year!  Maybe wee J will be able to pick with us too!  Thanks to SK and fam!  It was a lovely day, as always!!
