Apples?

Posted by texasholly |


We went to the apple orchard this week.

We saw a lake inhabited by beavers.


We saw baby chicks.


We saw colorful flowers.


We saw hay bales.


And then we saw our cousin.


And then we got silly.








Apples? I don't recall if we saw any.

Go have more fun hosted by Lotus.

How 'bout them apples?

The place looks beautiful...I don't suppose you were wearing your beaver-trapping boots?

cute! cute!

What great pictures! I love apple picking...but I am allergic to apples so it doesn't matter to me if we actually see any. Yes, a teacher...allergic to apples. Irony?

Rachel said...

Those pictures are just precious. Love the faces and the cousin, adorable :-)

I wish we had an orchard nearby, apples or not.

My favorite are the last 3:) Especially that tricky face expression of the youngest:)

Angie Ledbetter said...

That photo series would make nifty little gifts for the kids with a personalized cover for each. Maybe a diecut hard cover with their smiling faces peeking through? Cute!

We went once to a pick your own apple orchard with a pre school. They charged about the same price per pound for already picked as the grocery store does. I'll go to the orchard near my house, where apples are $12 a bushel (40 pounds), rather than $40 a bushel to get them at the first orchard.

These are great!
I love the one of the boys staring at the lake.
Those kids are adorable :)

Sarcastic Mom (aka Lotus) said...

Love your silly shots!

Louise said...

Love your captions. No apples, huh? Cute.

And the cousin is ADORABLE! And it looks like she fits right in with the boys. Gotta love girls like that!

I love all the shots of the kids.

Aw, so very adorable! I also think it's funny that you saw everything but apples. :)

Great pictures! And they can see apples in the grocery store!

Apple orchard? Really? Where?

That last pic is totally classic. I suggest it be displayed at all of their weddings...

hip chick said...

Sounds like a great time was had by all.

I love the first shot!

Angie's Spot said...

This is my favorite feature every week. I'm hoping to take my girls apple picking this week sometime. I love Fall. Sigh.

apples take a backseat to all the fun.

Lisa Ann said...

Great shots. Love the first one and the flower.

Holly, you mind reader! Here it is close to 11 PM. I'm thinking that it is a real shame that Holly doesn't host her potlucks until Monday because I could use a late night snack right now. And then I wonder if you might have Sunday night snacks to go along with your Monday potlucks, and here you are offering apples. You might just be the best host in the blogosphere. Thank you.
And did you know that apples are genetically complex, like children? If you plant a seed, you might get a decorative apple, an edible apple, a green apple, etc. It wasn't until the Chinese figured out grafting that they could predict what apples they would get. So, how fitting that you picture children under the heading of apple. (And no, I'm not really proud of the fact that I know that. I do not know why so many inane facts stick up there.)

Great adventure pics this week! My faves are all the silly ones though~too precious!

Valarie said...

Did you try to trap the beavers?

Anglophile Football Fanatic said...

Wonders if your Chicken Little Rhett felt like he was at home near the chicks?

Roger said...

Apples! Apples!! We don't need no, good for you and healthy, luscious, juicy, keep the Dr away, APPLES!

So did you find your former "pet" beavers out there?

Terri Tiffany said...

Great pictures!! Sounds like a wonderful day out--apples or not!
