Tidbits: Easy Apple Pie

We just got home from spending some time in Boston. I went up for a few sessions and brought the whole family this time.

We met up with my husband’s family there and had a fun-filled 5 days.

One of the highlights of the trip was going apple picking. It really is one of my favorite fall activities to do!  And since we can’t do that down in Florida, it was special treat this year for my kids.

Not only did we get to pick apples, but the little ones were able to come home and make an apple pie with their Oma (Grandma). It was such an adorable thing to witness.

Here are a few images below from our time… and an easy Apple Pie recipe for you to try at home!
