Apple Picking


We had an terrific, chalk-full-of-fun Fall Saturday! The weather was lovely and we wanted to make the most of it. We started the day off with the Hawkeye Game Day breakfast at the Institute, then headed over to the hospital to tour Labor & Delivery. And I'm happy to report the rooms are spacious and lovely. We then headed up to the local apple orchard Wilson's for some apple picking!

We've visited Wilson's a couple of times but it seems like we have just flat out picked the wrong times to go in the past. Last year the crop was tiny due to bad weather and I think the other time we went it was too late in the season. Thankfully we picked the perfect day this year. We had fun tromping around the orchard and had our pick of apples...there is something so satisfying about picking your own produce, don't you think?! We picked some delicious honey crisp apples and enjoyed their apple cider doughnuts and apple turnovers and even got a tractor ride!

But the fun didn't stop there...we then headed home for Kate's nap where I escaped out to get a pedicure with a friend and then we hosted a BBQ for all the medical students in our ward.  What a great Saturday! We are sure loving having Tim around and are trying to make the most of the time we have left as a family of three! I'm 37 weeks by the way...Amelia will be here before we know it!!!


 





On the tractor ride...Kate liked it but liked her doughnut more!
