Apple Picking

Several of my friends from Florida posted pictures of beach activities today. We are pretending like it's autumn already in Portland. We've had several days of cool weather already, though today was warm. We took a long drive along the Columbia River Gorge, saw Multhnomah Falls and drove through Hood River to a sweet, little orchard called Draper Girls Country Farm to pick apples. 

We gave Liam an abbreviated science lesson about apples growing on trees. He wasn't as interested in picking them as I had hoped.

If you know nothing else about Rosie, know that Baby Girl loves to eat. She got really excited when we started filling the bucket with apples. She wasn't so thrilled about the fact that Liam wouldn't let her eat one.

My sweet, sweet girl.

The minimum for picking your own apples was 20 lbs, so I'm in desperate need of some good ideas of how to use them all before they go bad. Suggestions are welcome!
