Apple Picking

Last week, my DD and I were watching Rachael Ray and she mentioned using apples they had picked in upstate NY. My DD promptly said “Rachael Ray goes apple pickin’ just like we do.” This is funny because DD has been apple picking once and it was a year ago when she was 2 (about the time of the photo above).

We plan to go apple picking this year, we just have not made it to an orchard yet - last year, we went toward the end of October, the weather was a little chilly, but perfect for sweatshirts and hot apple cider!
Check out other Fall traditions at Simply Sugar and Gluten Free!


  1. Haha! I heard Rachael Ray make that comment! Your daughter sounds so cute! There is nothing better than the smell of an apple orchard on a crisp fall day.

  2. Funny how children do something ONCE and it's suddenly tradition! Love that picture!

  3. We go apple picking too. I have learned how to make applesauce and apple butter this year so I am planing to make the most of it. We have gone in September maybe october would be a better option.

  4. Cute! I wish we could go apple pickin'...not an option in my neck of the woods!
