Apple Picking in upstate New York
It was a beautiful day and we had a great time with all of the family members who made it to the farm for apple picking - from Massachusetts, New Jersey, California, New Hampshire and Colorado.
I already have a title designed for some apple picking pages - I did it on the Gypsy in the car yesterday. It was a day full of fresh air and exercise and we need to get some sleep so I will just share a few photos from our day...
This is the old barn at the farm - the mural has been repainted several times over the years.

Some of the bins of apples we all picked today.
How to empty your picking bag...lower it, open the bottom and don't bruise the apples.
The apples are big and juicy this year - there was lots of rain!

I hope you are all having a great weekend - we head back to Massachusetts tomorrow (this was just a quick trip to get a chance to see everyone). I'll work on some more titles in the car tomorrow - it's great to have the Gypsy along!
