Apple Picking!

We got to celebrate the first day of fall by going apple picking. Picking apples has become a fun family tradition. Though the location has changed throughout the years it is still something we all look forward to. This year we were lucky enough to get to go apple picking right in my parents backyard! Dad had a bumper crop of fruit on most all of his fruit trees this year, especially the apple trees. In fact his macintosh tree had so many apples that the branches were actually weighed down almost to the point of breaking. He actually had to prop up several branches with boards. The girls thought it was pretty neat to pick apples right at Grammy and Grampy's house. The dogs even got in on the fun playing with the dropped apples and chasing each other around the yard.

This was also a great opportunity for me to play around with my new camera!
I 've still got a lot to learn about the camera and I still need to play around on the computer to touch up photos but it sure was fun playing around!
