Fall may still be officially a few days away, but this weekend we did one of my most favorite Autumn activities - apple picking!

This is E's third fall apple picking and M's first.  E remembers apple picking last year so she was very excited {despite having a little cold} while waiting in line for our tractor ride out to the orchards.
M thought the ride was a little bumpy and wasn't sure what all of the fuss was about.
After a few minutes out in the orchard, M figured things out and offered up a few suggestions of her own.
 On the ride over, our driver mentioned 'tasting' was allowed. E might have taken it a bit too far.

The girls {kind of} posing for a picture while Ryan was in line buying our picked apples, apple cider and apple & pumpkin doughnuts.  Please don't ask how many of our dozen doughnuts are left 36 hours later...the answer isn't pretty.
E is wearing her Matilda Jane Apple Knot dress that she first wore at 18 months and M is wearing the coordinating one on loan from cousin A.  You've gotta love a dress that lasts 3 YEARS!
M was all smiles after her first day apple picking.
A wonderful Fall day.
