Apple Picking

Our plans for this weekend was to get the apples picked, because of some equipment that came in for a job my husband ended up working this weekend.  So after church and lunch the grandsons helped pick some of the apples.

Having grandsons is a huge help!

After they had picked the bigger ones that they could reach from climbing the tree, it was time to bring out the step ladder.  Made me a little nerves at time, lets just say that they didn't always stand where grandma thought it was safe.  Especially with the youngest one, who has had crutches, a sling, and stitches, need I say more.
After picking a big rubber tub full and a pail the tree doesn't even look like we have picked.

So after work this week I will be working on getting these apples done. 
For supper we are having  beef roast, buttercup squash, baked potatoes, and apple sauce.

They look really good. I need to do up more of my apples. I have one child who is more adventurous than the others.

Have a wonderful evening.
