It's apple season!

To celebrate the start of Fall we met up with Dennis and Jessa at Stribling Orchard in Markham for lunch and apple picking.

It was our first family adventure, and Roscoe seemed to enjoy looking at all the apples. Dennis and Jessa ordered boxed lunches from their favorite neighborhood shop, and afterward we enjoyed warm apple danishes and apple sticks.

The guys used their borrowed picking poles to snag all the good fruit from way up high, and we left with a half bushel of Golden Delicious, Red Delicious, and McIntosh apples--soon to be turned into apple pie, applesauce, and caramel apples--as well as jars of apple pecan butter, blackberry and strawberry jams, and peach/mango salsa. Yum!

The weather was cool with a nice breeze; we expected it to be cooler so we bundled Roscoe in an undershirt, babylegs, pants, long sleeve shirt, socks and hoodie, most of which were stripped off by the end of the day. Somehow he and Andy managed to get a little sunburn too. :(

We were lucky to have a very talented photographer among us--with the exception of a few non-artistic shots below, Jessa took all the photos posted here. More pictures can be viewed on her facebook.

Roscoe's many faces ...

Later, a good game of Patty-Cake brought on the smiles!
