Autumn Apple Picking : Our First Fall Weekend

this weekend marked the beginning of september, which meant two things: autumn decor was put up (unapologetically) around the house and the husband and i ordered warm pumpkin spice lattes two days in a row!  it also meant autumn apple picking with some of our new great friends and all our sweet kiddos.  but did i mention pumpkin spice lattes?  i think i even purchased a fall scarf over the weekend too.

now that our little one is 16.5 months, she has officially decided to go from two naps a day, to one.  which is actually really lovely because we can venture further away from home on the weekends without hurrying home for a nap.  this weekend we traveled great country farms to enjoy all things apple picking, wagon rides, a picnic lunch, fun with friends, and apple cider donuts.

with the goal to make an apple pie with our apples, we set off to find the perfect batch of apples.  (and mama wanted the most photographable ones, because…photos).  the night before, we read amelia bedelia’s first apple pie (which is darling!) to prepare for apple day and to also refer to the apple pie recipe in the back of the book!  we have an almost walker on our hands who loves to be on her feet, but tightly holding a hand (per her request).  while the apples were too high for her to pick, mama picked a bunch and she loved picking them up out of the box and plopping them back in.  she was almost a little apple inspector…carefully looking at each one and determining if mama did a good enough job for the pie.

needless to say, our day of autumn apple picking was very memorable.  my husband and i are passionate about creating experiences for our family, instead of focusing on things so this was a perfect first annual autumn apple picking adventure.  we definitely want to make a tradition out of it and cannot wait until pumpkin season starts so we take her to search for the perfect pumpkin…with pumpkin spice lattes.  this was truly the perfect kickoff to fall.
