Apples, peaches, and pears OH MY!

We are on a quest to visit all of the apple orchards around here.  No, not really.  But I am addicted to visiting them!  We have only been to two, but I get excited and start planning in my head when I see an ad for a new place.  The girls always have so much fun and I love seeing their excitement as they run around plucking apples from the trees.

This past weekend we went to another orchard that had not just apples, but also peaches and pears ready for picking.  It was fun.  We took a little train to three different stops to do picking.  On one of the stops, they also had a play area with a little park, farm animals, and a bbq.  Aside from the animals, the girls were in love!

First, we took a train ride to the pears.

Then we headed to the play area to see some animals and have some fun.

Finally, we ate some apples and rode some pigs.

I have so many plans for the pounds and pounds of apples that we picked.  More applesauce (unfortunately the girls don't like the previous batch), apple muffins, and maybe this recipe for apple granola that I was sent tonight.  I am so excited!  I hope the girls like this batch of cooking better!  Ya know, I wish I would have thought to do apple pancakes when I made a double batch yesterday!

What else should I make?

P.S. Seriously, how cute are my girls in their little piggy tails?

    Hey, if the apple granola turns out, please sent the recipe my way. :)
    We went apple picking on the weekend and, aside from the applesauce that is cooking in the slow cooker at the moment, I have no other ideas for the mound of apples we have.
