Apple Picking

IMG_3562 Apple Picking at Thierbach Orchards is one of my favorite things to do in October!  Last year a good friend introduced Emily and I to Thierbach Orchards where we became addicted to picking strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, peaches and apples.  Picking berries is SERIOUSLY addicting and apples are no exception!  We start off by going on a fun hay ride that takes us right to the large apple orchard.  They tell us which trees are ready to be picked and off we go.  This year we picked Mutsu apples, and they were AMAZING!  Every bite was just delicious!  Here are a few(okay a lot)of pictures from that day!

  1. so much fun!!! i'm jealous. i love berry picking+apple picking,cherry picking, anything. it looks like you guys were very successful! and the kiddos are adorable.

  2. Going to the orchard to pick our own apples in the fall is one of the things I miss most about living in Missouri. Allison even commented a couple of weeks ago how much she misses it!
