Last weekend I made a trip home to Colorado to surprise my dad for his birthday. The weather and scenery were as beautiful as ever. I’ve really been wanting to go apple picking out here in New England, but a lack of car has kind of prevented that from happening. We have had a little apple tree in the backyard at home since we moved in, but this is the first year that the apples have been so big and red! I remember picking a bunch two years ago and trying to make apple juice, but they were just too mealy. I was so happy to see all these pretty apples that were actually good enough to eat off the tree.
