Apple Orchard Photo Shoot /// Minus The Apples

Monday, September 24, 2012

This has to be my favorite time of year.
Oh, I love it so much.

I thought Sunday was the perfect day to take the kids out to the Apple Orchard for pictures,
it was sunny, the weather was beautiful and we had no plans.
I have been wanting to take recent pictures of them and I thought the Orchard would be a lot
of fun - plus a perfect bribery for the kids- you know, apple donuts, apple cider and the playground afterwards.

The funny thing is, there was no apples at the apple orchard.
Well, actually there was one, we saw ONE on a tree, that was it.
The owner said they lost nearly all of their apples during a freeze in April.
Good thing they sell apples in their shop from other places in Illinois so we had some for pictures
and for the kids to eat, too.
The kids cooperated really well for me, no snapping around or losing my patience, no tears from anyone. It was a good day.


There are a whole lot more pictures from yesterday but I'll save the rest for another day.
Hope your week is off to a great start, Happy Monday.
