Our CP group went apple picking this past Saturday at skytop orchard. Sadly its nearly impossible to keep such a large group together while doing something like apple picking but we had a lot of fun hanging out with the Hills when everyone else went behind a line of trees and disappeared. Our two favorite kinds of apples were technically not picking but when we passed by those trees, they had so many apples that they were dropping a third of their apples to the ground already. Will and I picked a bushel of apples. We are looking forward to making our favorite pioneer woman recipes!
We lost the rest of the group....but we still had a blast!
Look at all the apples on this tree! I have no idea why it was closed because the apples where already passing being ripe and were dropping to the ground right and left.
We finally caught up with the rest of the group and they had a successful day as well. I'm glad that we got to spend time with everyone!
So I've been bad about blogging since I've been on crutches (3+ weeks now) because we do not have internet at our house and its too much of a hassle to try to go to Starbucks. But I wanted to share about our second annual apple picking with our friends Becky and Grey. We went the first weekend I was on crutches so it was killing me but I have a wonderful husband and great friends. They had these wagons for pulling your apple buckets around, and despite all of the signs telling us that no one is to ride in the wagon, Will, Becky, and Grey took turns pulling me in it.
And they took turns carrying the apples and apple donuts, climbing the trees (or in Grey's case, using my crutches to knock the apples off the tree)
This week Will and I are making this fabulous apple pie. Its a pioneer woman recipe...need I say more
We are the Rogers. We have been married since August and are loving it! Will recently graduated with his PhD in Civil Engineering and I am currently an IT assistant by day and a photographer by night.
