Here we are on our annual apple picking trip. The trees were pretty picked over, but we had no trouble filling our bushel bag. The weather was lovely, just beginning to really feel like fall.
Here is Cassie, now 4 1/2 months old, tasting some windfall apples. It was fun bringing her along. She had a great time walking the rows of trees and meeting many friendly people who were eager to pet her.
Here is the bag of apples we brought home. These should last until Christmas, with proper storage.
And then home for a nice hot dinner, beef stew with noodles and crusty bread...
And here's dessert! A little ice cream, a little whipped cream, Mmmm!
