I love the tradition of picking apples with friends to bring in fall. Rowan was big enough this year to twist his own empire apples off the tree and carry the bag. Rather, he wouldn’t let anyone touch his bag of apples.
Apples, a wagon tour through the orchard, samples of apple cider, and the tradition of buying the market’s apple cider donuts: such a special day spent with my kids that we so look forward to.
Our apples didn’t make it nearly as far this year: lots of snack apples + peanut butter and cream cheese dip, an apple crisp, and apple printing.
Our apple printing project is almost finished. (You’ll see soon!) With each child on my lap one at a time yesterday, we sewed at the table together. Even Rowan is super proud of his apple project (although he’d rather spend his time playing with the On/Off switch on my machine while I’m trying to sew.)
And while we’re finishing one project, a few baking plans are being laid out for Rowan’s second birthday tomorrow. Such a wonderful time of year…
