Apple Picking

Last week we took the kids to Cortland to go apple picking.  We had a great time, and Kara probably picked the most apples.
Ezekiel helped daddy pull the wagon with the basket for the apples in it.
Kara and Lydia pretty much filled this basket themselves.
We did have to constantly remind the kids not to climb the apple trees since they weren't are apples.
Kara was a big help with peeling and coring apples to make our apple pie filling.
Here are all four kids after spending two hours picking apples.  They had a 
blast and are already asking to go apple picking again.

Looks like tons of fun! Wow, you must have gotten TONS of apples from 2 hours of picking. What are you doing with all the apples? We went picking once and then last week I went to an orchard and bought some seconds for baking. So far I've done 4 batches of applesauce and 2 apple pie fillings.

We canned about 53 quarts of applesauce with the apples we picked (they were very wormy), and we bought a bag of seconds for apple pie filling (9 pie fillings in the freezer).

Sounds like so much fun! I fantasize about going apple picking every year...I've only actually gone once! Maybe I'll get it done this year.
It seems like your kids are getting to a great fun age when they are really able to do a lot of things right alongside you. They are going to learn so much from you!
