One of the many benefits to autumn in the Midwest is the apple picking & Pumpkin patch time. Keith & I took Asher to an apple orchard in Indiana yesterday to go on his first official apple picking outing:-) It was fun. Of course it was a little chilly & gray outside, but we enjoyed it,especially the hot apple cider afterwards! Below are some of the pictures we salvaged after discovering we had the camera set on the wrong setting. Nonetheless, it was fun and I am looking forward to making my first homemade apple pie out of the apples Asher collected and so willingly dropped in a bag for me & Keith.
