Here’s the Apple Picking Blog Post. You knew it was coming. On Sunday we drove half an hour south to a local orchard to pick fresh, crunchy, scrum-diddly-umptious McIntosh and Cortland apples. Finn ate two massive apples in an hour and didn’t have a lot of room for apple cider donuts. That didn’t stop him from eating two on the car ride home and covering himself and the car-seat (and somehow his brother) in sugar. Did you know that apple cider donuts are a part of the New England apple picking tradition? How did I not know this? Because it turns out that apple cider doughnuts look and taste just like Australian doughnuts, except that we call them ‘cinnamon doughnuts’ and they don’t have apple cider in them. But they are pretty much EXACTLY the same thing.
Here are probably too many photos from our adventures on the farm. They look similar to our apple picking pics from last year, but for a different farm and a new appreciation of my camera’s AV setting. Also I am wearing Bennett on my back instead of on my front. The 360° baby carrier I am wearing in this post is by Ergo.
