One of my favorite fall activities is picking apples. Fortunately, we chose a most perfect day to go do it too. The weather was a nice 72 degrees with virtually no humidity (hard to come by in the midwest) and a wonderful breeze. Grandma and Grandpa Rapp were in town, so they came along to enjoy a great day outdoors. We have a beautiful orchard just a few miles from our home that we visit to pick peaches, apples and pumpkins. The kids gorge themselves on apples, and then we bring plenty home so that I can make a yummy apple crisp.
