Apple Pickin'

Took advantage of the warm weather today! It was gorgeous and around 58 F, and I am sure this is the last of warm-ish days!My Aunt and Sister in law all met up this morning at a local Orchard.
We got a big wagon and headed out to the field

And my nephew, Milo and Cristian being silly. I think my nephew looks cute with long blond hair :)
This is the apple haul I came home with. The three of us split 1/2 bushel. We picked Golden Delicious, Jonathan and Mutsu.
I was really surprised how yummy some of the apples were right from the tree. I haven't like golden delicious from the store before, they have always been too soft and mealy. But when we picked them today, they were crisp and sweet and so yummy. I think we all ate more than a half bushel of apples while out in the orchard ^_^
I would have thought that was enough, but both of my wee ones ate two more apple when we got home!
Yummy apple cider doughnuts. Soft on the inside like a yeast doughnut, but thick like a cake doughnut. just perfect. Half the box is already gone :)
