The weather here in the northwest is really holding out for us - so we decided to seize the good fortune and head out to the "Fruit Loop" in the Hood River Valley for some apple picking. The girls were troopers for the long drive, which was worth it. We found a great farm and picked a whole bunch of apples. Afterwards, the girls played on the play fort there on the property. We finished it up with a nice lunch in town. All in all a very enjoyable outing!
