Apples indeed

On Sunday, Nate and I went to pick apples at the same orchard we visited last year. In fact, I think this was the same weekend we chose to go as last year. Funny thing, though: this year I have a pimped out camera and 10 months of experience with it. Also, instead of ME just coming off my first marathon, it's Nate. And also, I'm with child, in case you didn't know:) So much changes in a year, right?

This year we weren't so into the pumpkins but we totally owned the apples. Nate had to coax me into moving a bit faster since everything was distracting me and my camera. But it was worth it!









The best part of the trip (besides getting a butt load of apples for $16, fresh honey, and a jug of spiced apple cider?). This:



I love fall.

I still want to get some pretty leaf pictures and we were going to do it after this trip, but alas---the leaves weren't QUITE as bright as I'd hoped. We shall see. I'm sure it has something to do with the abnormally chilly weather for this time of year. Whatever.


  1. Tommy and I picked apples last weekend too only it cost us $19 for 12 lbs of apples and that's it. I'm jealous of your deal! Great pics!

  2. My husband and I were thinking of going apple picking this weekend. I hope it's not to late! Love your pictures! I just bought a great camera but I really need to learn how to use it!

  3. I love how mind boggling your life can change in just a year!

    These pictures are CRAAZY Julia. They are insanely crisp!

  4. These pictures are awesome - I really like the barbed wire one.

  5. Ooooh, pretty, pretty pictures!

    I want to try to get up to Barthel's this weekend, but we'll see. I have a hankering to make apple pie! And, those caramel apples look DELICIOUS!

    It seems like the leaves are just starting to really be vivid. I bet this weekend will make for some great pictures.

  6. And the fun has just begun; last year we were picking with a seven month old in a front carrier, this year a 19 month old who was picking herself and trying very hard to eat the ones on the ground.

    Gorgeous pictures, well done!!

  7. Beautiful pictures! Just think... this time NEXT year you will have a baby :-) Time travels fast! xx

  8. Great pictures! Get the picture-taking practice in before the babe comes!

  9. Wow. No, seriously, Wow. Gorgeous.
