As a part of September's apple theme, McPreachy and I took the kids apple pickin' on Monday!
Here's Bennett on the way there:
We drove to Julian, a quaint, old town surrounded by U-pick apple orchards. First we ate lunch (and apple pie, of course) in one of Julian's fine eateries.
Mallory is such a sweetie-pie (Hah! Get it?!)
Bennett was excited about the boot-shaped water glasses.
Then it was off to Peacefield Orchard where we picked a peck and a half! (say that fives times fast!)
Doesn't Mallory look like a nun with the blanket over her head like that?! It was very sunny, and we can't have our princess getting too much sun!
Apple pickin' (notice that I refuse to say "picking"... it must be said with a twang!) was especially fun for Bennett because for the last week or so I have been teaching him about Johnny Appleseed. He was so excited to pick apples just like Johnny.
Mallie even joined in the fun!
Here's Bennett hugging the sweet man who owned the orchard. They were fast friends.
