Even though it threatened rain all day, we still managed to pick two pecks of apples that are all earmarked for pies, tarts, frying and eating!
This year we had a new addition to the party, Emma's boyfriend Hunter.
He came in pretty handy when it came to hauling all those apples around! :)
Here's a few pictures of our fun day - I'll let them tell the story. Enjoy a glimpse of my Virginia and my family.

|Nothing better than Rome apples from Virginia|
|My beautiful apple picker|
|Love my girl!|
|Eating as much as they were picking|
|Yeah, they're pretty cute together.|
|Love the sign markers for each section|
|Me and my honey|
|I told Hunter that if he was on that side of the pole, we could crop him out if he wasn't good to Emma. Ha!|
|She gets it honest.......|
|The fruit of our labors - Cinnamon Apple Crostada. Yummy!|
Back tomorrow with something crafty for you!
