Vaughn and I decided to take the girls apple picking today. We kept it a surprise until we pulled into the parking lot of Sky Top Orchards. On the way there we passed by some mountains and it was so neat to see the girls see mountains for the first time! Still not knowing where we were we joked that we drove all that way just to see the mountains, Callie didn’t find that was a very good treat. I had thought that one of them would have figured it out since I dressed them in matching apple shirts, but they had no clue and got SUPER excited when they realized what their treat was.
There was slight confusion because as you walked in they had pumpkins out, so of course we had to sit on most of them to take pictures
Then we got our buckets and headed out to the trees!
I LOVE fuji apples so we picked those first. We also picked some Granny Smith’s for Vaughn
Chloe had the best time helping her daddy! We had to teach her to be gentle with the apples (not throwing them in the bucket) so they wouldn’t bruise and be ‘yucky’
Callie was even able to climb up in the trees with Vaughn. I think that was the highlight of her day! So excited to be like her daddy
After we filled our buckets we headed to the petting zoo. We got to feed Sheep, goats and geese!
Next was the play ground. A perfect stop for us girls while Vaughn went an paid for our pickings.
After a little play time, Vaughn came back with some apple cider doughnuts. Melt in your mouth good.
We walked around a little more to check out all the apple goodies. Bought some apple honey and two little pumpkins to take home. I’m not sure who had the better time, me, Vaughn or the girls. As we pulled out of the parking lot I commented to V that I’m looking forward to this being a little Granger tradition. I love when we make new memories/traditions together and this seems to be one of the best. Now, just need to figure out what to do with the three bags of apples we have!
