Erie Orchard 2013

One of Damon's very favorite places is "da apple owchawd" where we go every year to pick apples, drink homemade cider, and partake in way too many donuts. He just loves running around outside, picking every apple he can reach whether it's ready or not, and devouring donuts.

This year we got to take PaPa and Grandmama! I can't believe we've been here almost 8 years and this is their first time! They arrived at our house that morning and we popped them straight into the car after lunch so we could go play. Erie Orchard had their official opening weekend one week after we were there, so we got all the apples to ourselves in peace, which is just the way I like it.

It was a perfect day, weather-wise, and everyone had a good time collecting yummy, crisp apples before we wandered back to the entrance for the cider and donuts. Even PaPa was impressed, and he's had a lot of places to try sweets in his lifetime. ;)  

Poor Damon crashed hard on the way home, though, since we'd missed his nap. Gramps would have said he's catching flies, hehe! That's one tuckered out apple picker.
