Fall + Apples.

01 October 2013


I absolutely love this photo of the two of them.  And two seconds later, Finn was tattling that Tate was eating her apple and she was pushing him out of her way.  You’ve got to catch these short lived, sweet moments when you can.

Last weekend, we went to the orchard to pick apples.  We’ve been doing this for years and years and it’s probably my favorite fall tradition.  That, and Ohio State football, of course.  The weather has finally turned chilly here and the kids were dying to wear their new rain boots and long sleeves to trek through the orchard.  They’ve been wearing them non-stop around the house for a month already.

They were picking apples left and right.  Some tiny Tate sized snack apples, some huge and perfect for pie.  I need to borrow a peeler and corer for all of the work coming my way.  If you have any incredible apple recipes that I should try, please leave a comment and share them. 

I was pretty sure Finn was going to lose his other front tooth, but it’s holding tight despite the massive amount of apples he has consumed.  It’s a good thing too because the Tooth Fairy hasn’t yet replaced her supply of golden Sacagawea dollars.  Or at least, that is what I heard.  Please also note that he’s almost as tall as my shoulder already.

How did they get so big?

Disclosure:  The sweet folks at Joules sent a few new pieces for the kids to wear this fall from their new US site.  I was not compensated for this post and all opinions are my own.

{P.S.  I really love finding places with stylish boys clothes.  Boy moms know, it’s sometimes much harder than you’d think and Joules has an excellent selection.  I’ll be shopping here in the future.}

Cute family pic. There were apple orchards where I went to college, and I am still mad I never visited them.

super cute photos. I've never gone apple picking! I know, I think i'm embarrassed to admit that, since I say I am a lover of fall. I am a lover of fall, just not a baker. apple picking people seem to then DO something with all the apples they pick! i'd pick a handful and be good to go.

Go! Take some friends and just split up the apples at the end!

Boy moms DO know. I was always dismayed at the racks and racks of girls clothes and the tiny, little corner of boys clothes in the kids department. Love these pictures. Tate's hair is getting so long! They grow too fast.

This looks like so much fun-- and an adorable family pic!!
I wish that we could make this part of our fall traditions, but it's still so darn hot here. No apples for us!
Finn's boots are ADORABLE-- My have to check them out for my boys!
