The Lord blessed us with a beautiful day this past Saturday when we went apple picking! It was sunny and warm, a far cry from last year's weather! Our extended family were unable to join us this year but we enjoyed our time as a family immensely. We only brought home 2 bushels this year because I'm not up for a lot of applesauce making before our trip in a few weeks.
This year Elizabeth could actually pick the apples herself and she LOVED it! She was pretty good too- besides Patricia, Elizabeth picked the most:
Abigail would not let her apple go- she held it until we got home (keep in mind that the drive was 1.5 hours!). :) Here are some more pics of my young ladies:

The children and I were especially glad to have Daddy with us. Here are a few pics of Daddy with his littles:
A family pic- yahoo!!!
The children were able to watch some bees making honey:
We ended our trip with a Tully family tradition: eating applesauce donuts for lunch. YUM!
I made these latter that night:
