After church, The Husband, and our two big kids worked outside, while Eliza napped and I got some Hearty Chicken Stew with Butternut Squash and Quinoa into the crock pot. This soup was amazing and the perfect thing to come home to after apple picking. If you're looking for a new (healthy!) recipe, I highly recommend this soup.
Later in the afternoon, we all headed out to go apple picking. This is something that my Mom did with my sister and I when we were younger and it's something that I've been looking forward to doing with our kids. Apple picking with them today was everything I'd anticipated it to be, and more. At 4 and 2 (almost 3!), they were so into it. I didn't realize that apples around here could be so tasty. On our way home, we each ate an apple in the car and we have about 15 pounds of apples left, to bake with or just eat. They are so good! After we eat them all, we might have to go back for more.
Here's a little look into our apple picking adventure.....
