Apple Picking

We had the most perfect September day yesterday with sunshine and blue skies.  It felt like a small reward for the wet and gloomy summer.  We made the most of the day by visiting a beautiful orchard, heaving with different varieties of apples and pears.  We hop, skipped and jumped amongst the trees, deciding on which varieties we should take home and admiring the different colours and sizes. 

Violet enjoyed running amongst the windfalls and she managed to pick a few from the tree too, which she was very proud about.  

We had the loveliest day.  

It's also nice to be back updating my blog after a little break.   I do love writing about my family here, but it has been equally nice to simply read other blogs and take some time off over the last few weeks.
