Apple Picking Fun

Fall is here! This season is truly my favorite and I wish it could last forever. It's so crazy to think that this time last year I was extremely pregnant and anxiously awaiting the arrival of my sweet boy. This year Aiden is with us and I am loving being able to introduce him to all of our favorite fall things.

First on the list of things to do with Aiden...visit an apple orchard! We went to one of my favorite places, Iron's Fruit Farm where we took a hayride out to the apple orchard to pick our own apples. Aiden wasn't too sure about the hayride, but loved being fed bits of apple fresh from the tree. He kept signing "more!"
My sister in law and brother in law came with us and were able to capture a few pictures of our little family's first trip to the apple orchard and I love how they turned all turned out.
This last picture had to be included because I like to be real and let's be honest, it's hilarious. This was our cue that it was time to stop the photo session and go home for a nap. Haha.

What things are on your fall bucket list??

LOVE THIS. It reminds me so much of home right down the street! I went to Iron's a couple weeks ago just to pick up some cider and donuts. Can you believe I've never picked apples there? Just pumpkins. Apple Fest is on Saturday and I'm hoping to make it! Those pictures of Aiden in the crate are absolutely melting my heart, by the way. So precious and I love that he communicates via sign language. So smart!

I wish there was an apple orchard here... I would love to pick apples right off a tree. Love your photos!

You have got yourself a CUTIE. I was just out at Iron's this past Sunday, but only went near closing time for a fritter. I didn't even realize you could go pick apples there! I may have to run out sometime and check it out.

P.S. I have a new space, if you're interested: www.em-barked.com

How fun! That looks like a great setting. Love the last photo - Aiden be like, "No more apples? I'm out."

Your family is adorable! I grew up in Ontario and we used to go apple picking in September with my aunt...it was fun! There are no orchards in Alberta (where I live now) and I miss it!

Awww... What a precious time together as a family! I'm looking for an apple orchard for us to go!

So so cute. Aiden in the box is the best. We took Hendrik to an orchard for the first time this fall and they had some baby trees that he could reach himself, and he just walked around munching on an apple the whole time - first time he'd ever eaten one un-cutup like that and it about killed me how old it made him seem. Can you believe you're about to do the first birthday thing?!
