Apple Picking

Fall has arrived and we have the apples to prove it. Today we headed to Hood River to pick apples and to enjoy a day of sunshine! We were also surprised by strawberries that were ready to pick...In October! So we picked, we ate, we conquered. I think I know what my next few days have in store..... I will keep you posted on what these apples get turned into!

Pin It Now!


  1. Strawberries?? In October?? No way! What a treat!

  2. We picked more apples than we can get through! I even made apple crisp!
