We missed apple picking season last year. So this year I made a vow that we would go early in the season before the trees were picked over. Lucky for us the super hot summer had the apples ripening already. When I saw that Alldredge Orchards was opening up two weeks early we hopped at the chance to go apple picking in August! We were there the first weekend right as the barn doors opened for business! A smiling farm woman greeted us as chickens clucked in the background.
I really talked this experience up so the boys were oh so ready to get started. As expected they had a blast. Daddy lifted them up so they could pick their own scrumptious gala apples. We love doing new things with the boys. Especially when fresh air is involved. I’ll be the first to admit that the end of summer always makes me a little sad. But this year I am anxiously awaiting the cool crisp air of autumn. Our apple picking day gave us a beautiful sneak peek of what is soon to come.
