Apples, Apples

The other part of our weekend included the annual trip to the apple orchard. I stopped climbing trees long ago, but I always like to pick up a peck of nice, tasty apples. Even though the prices have gone up, it's one thing I don't like to compromise on -- there's just no comparing the taste!
Also picked up some squash, which will go nicely with those fall meals. Now I'm on the lookout for a pumpkin!

This is always a bittersweet day for me .. My family's been going to this orchard for nearly two decades, and I have great memories of going with my mom, and my aunts and uncles. They've all passed on now, but I, at least, get to keep the memories.
