Pumpkins & Apples

We took Cali to a "You Pick" farm today.  They had a pumpkin patch and apple orchards.  Grandma Jordan joined us for the fun.

After the pumpkins Cali and Daddy played on the tire swing!

After the tire swing we grabbed a basket and headed off to the apple orchard.  I have to say I was super excited because I have never picked apples before.  We picked a bushel full of fuji apples.  It was late in the season so most of the apples had been picked.  However, we had a secret weapon - NICK!  It is so great having a tall husband.  He was able to get all the good apples from the tops of the trees.  Cali's job was to put the apples in the basket.

It was a fun trip!  Afterward we caught up with the rest of Nick's family for dinner.  Cali wasn't feeling too well so she and I came home early.

Now that I have a bushel of apples, anyone have any good apple recipes?
