Apple Pickin' With My Mom

Despite the torrential downpour we got here, today was the perfect apple-picking day.

My mom and I drove a little over an hour north, to Merritt Orchards in Bow, Washington.

We each got a super special apple-holding bag (read: plastic grocery bag).

It took us awhile to pick our apples, because we're both super picky. No worms in these apples!!

This orchard would make an amazing photo shoot location.

Mom tried to just pick the high ones, leaving the lower ones for little kids. These little kids were purely hypothetical, as we were the only crazies picking apples in the rain.

Man, those were the wrong shoes to wear.

We found some nests too, but we left those alone!
The final count? Ten pounds of Jonagolds! Yes, it sounds like a lot, but I have big plans for these babies...

And naturally we couldn't leave without warm apple pie a la mode. We climbed back into the car, wet and cold. We cranked up the heat and took off our shoes and socks and agreed that it was, all in all, a perfect day.
