I try to take the kids to pick apples each Fall at Apple Hill. We usually go in October when the apples are mostly picked and gone. This year we went early and there were apples but it was HOT. We didn't last long but it was a nice time.
If you head to Apple Hill we pick at Denver Dans to get the picking experience but usually buy a box at Larsen's Apple Farm. Unfortunately it turns out Larsen's is closed on Saturday so we'll have to go back for that. The pounds we picked was plenty for sauce.
And Oscar is wearing a scarf tied as a sarong instead of shorts because it turns out he is a bit prone to carsickness. And I didn't pack extra shorts. Live and learn :)
