We always go the last weekend in September and every year I always think we should have gone earlier because most of the trees are picked over, but that was not the case this year. We usually have to walk toward the back of the orchards to get to the trees were Grace can reach, but this year we went 4 rows back and all the trees still had tons of apples on them!
Smith Farm is great because you park right there, no hayride, and not a ton of walking. We decided to give the wagon a try for the babies, we also brought the backpack in case it wasn't working, or Grace got tired.

and her 1st bite, so lady like!

Grace decided she wanted to help pull the babies, girl has muscles, because they are heavy!
After lunch we packed up the car. On the way out we stopped at the farm store so Grace could buy a honey stick and see the animals.
it's crazy to see how much Grace has grown in just a year:
I tried to get a picture of all 3, but failed miserably and to be honest I was so hot and sweaty that I gave up after a few tries.
After apple picking we came home and had a little cake for Cole's Mom's birthday. I made a lemon soda cake, so lemon cake mix, diet sprite, and then topped with fat free cool whip and lemon zest, making it roughly 212 calories for 1/12th of the cake!
