A couple of weekends ago, the kids and Kenny and I returned to our favorite Apple Orchard for their annual Farm Fest. Of course, I wanted to get the kids’ photo in front of the orchard’s sign like I did the previous two years. And, of course, the sign was not there this year. 🙁 But they had some cool decor on the porch to use as a photo backdrop.
Just for reference, here are the group pics from 2011 and 2012:
Poor Jesse didn’t even make it into this one. I had no idea it would become a tradition! I took this pic at the end so I bet he was asleep in the sling. 🙂 Just so he doesn’t get skipped, here is one of my favorite pics of him from that year:
Wow. Just wow. What a difference a year makes in the life of a teenager!! They change as quickly as babies!! Here is the shot from this year:
Some of my favorites: 🙂
No idea what was on Jesse’s mind in the hay maze!
There was no room on the hayride for Dad and the boys so they walked down to the orchard. You can see them if you look closely.
Sophia wanted to carry the apple bag.
The minute she sat it down, Jesse ran off with it!
Abe and Kenny came up with a way to get the high apples!
Wesley had to try it, too! Good thing Dad’s been working out!!
Just a cute apple picking photo.
Proof that I was actually there. Thank, Abe. 🙂
I’m so glad we’re still in New York at apple picking time. We were sad when we thought we might have to leave in August and miss it. In fact, I think we may have to walk down to the orchard this weekend and pick a few more!
