Leaf Peeping With My Peeps

My son, daughter-in-law and grandson live in the city and even though they love it, every now and then they need a getaway to the country. During my visit this month, we planned a trip up to see my sister and brother-in-law in the tiny town they live in in Massachusetts.

Little Luke tested out his new(ish) walking skills in all those open spaces and checked out the pretty leaves he found on the ground.

I got to enjoy some autumn color.

We took little Lukey apple picking for the first time. We found a low-hanging beauty, pointed him towards it and then we all jumped back to take pictures. Photographing a one-year-old is a lot like photographing wildlife. You have to just snap away and hope you get a decent shot.

Once Luke got his apple off the tree, there was no getting it away from him. He carried that same apple around for the rest of the day.


A pretty yellow apple couldn't even get him to drop that red apple.

And yes, you can drive a tractor clutching an apple.

Mommy can have a bite, but that's it!!.

Since he wasn't sharing, great-grandma searched for her very own special apple.

Enjoying the fruit of his labor.

Safe to say, the city-folks had fun in the orchard.

Those low, red bushes at the orchard are blueberries!  Not in season right now, but aren't they pretty?

Luke was a good little guy all weekend at his great-aunt's house but we did have to keep a keen eye on him. He was fascinated by the stairs and we had to run interference if he toddled near the wood burning stove.

Though they were very welcoming, I'm sure my sister, her husband, the dog and all the cats were relieved to see us strap that tiny bundle of energy into his car seat and drive off into the sunset.
