Apple Picking Adventures

My parents, my girls and I managed to make it out a couple weeks ago to Brantwood Farms for some afternoon adventures in apple picking. This was my parents' first time and one of them got a little carried away---- more on that later. Here are just a few pictures of our time at the orchards. 

First off, the kids had some fun at the Fall Festival. 

We have a three and a four footer this year!

It was around this time we missed my dad but we thought nothing of it. He wanders off on his own a lot. After a long time though, he reappeared with twenty pounds of apples-- yep, he had gone apple picking without us. He was very pleased with himself, thinking that he was being all efficient and helping out by trying out the different types of apples and selecting the sweetest varietal. My seven year old however, less than pleased! To avoid a melodramatic tear sesh (which I totally understood), we bought another bag and more picking ensued. 

I'm usually the photographer but here I am! Thanks, mama.

We ate lots and lots of apples that day-- and maybe a couple apple cider donuts too ;-)

Our spoils--- we're still munching our way through them. The girls have two tiny ambrosias a day and they have not been to see the doctor since :-)

Fall IS fun!


  1. Haha oh your dad thought he was being so helpful only to cause a meltdown, lol. We have TOTALLY been there before too. Looks like the perfect place to visit in the fall.

  2. So how many apples do you have?!? Apples for everyone! So funny

  3. Looks like such a fun time !!! I love fall and all the colors :)

  4. haha, such a dad thing to do thinking he's being helpful and all...we would have had to do the same thing! Such a pretty place and so happy to finally see you in a picture!

  5. Awww, men thinking the efficient way is the better way... ;) If you have leftover apples you can send them Ez's way. And I'll take any leftover donuts!

  6. You guys look like you had so much fun! We really need to go before the season is over!

  7. Ha!! 20 pounds, good grief! Send some applesauce this way ;) Love the girls fedoras! So cute.

  8. Being down in Texas, I just love seeing fall stuff like what you posted as it's a little hard to find activities here in Fort Worth :/ I won't give up though looking for a pumpkin patch for my little one to hang out in. Thank you for sharing this!

  9. Such a fun outing. Looks like you guys had a beautiful day!


Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
