Yep, we went to Idalou, Texas (20 minutes away from Lubbock) for the annual Apple Butter festival. This festival is all about...you guessed it, apples! They have apple picking, apple butter for sale, apple cider for sale (which yours truly might or might not be drinking while typing this post), and these delicious apple turnovers.
They also had this amazing BBQ plate cooked by the towns people and the money goes straight to charity purposes, so we had to oblige and eat some sloppy joes!
When you let your husband take a picture...this is what happens...
A boob view AND I have BBQ sauce on me? I think this is Evan's DREAM!
While you eat BBQ, they had entertainment that they had advertised. I wish I could make this stuff up, but look at the opening act...
After lunch we walked around and tried a delicious sample of apple cider. The whole time we were there I thought something smelled different and realized it was a mixture of crushed apples and roasted peppers! I had never seen them cooked like this...
After walking back to the apple cider department, we realized we would just have to shell out $8 for a gallon because this stuff was amazing. By the apple cider, they had these adorable buckets to take around while apple picking. Doesn't Evan just look cute as can be with his Daddy diaper bag and his apple bucket?
In the end, we only bought 5 apples so we didn't even need the bucket, but I made Evan pose anyway! HA!
Apple picking was a bunch of fun and we got some cute shots...
Mommy and Liliana picking apples.
The pretty apple trees with LOTS of apples on the floor!
Evan enjoyed crushing them because he wore his boots.
I wore cute flip flops from Aldo. ; )
Evan picked the prettiest apples!
But this one looks awfully nice!
All in all, it was a GREAT afternoon together as our little family. This is our second year going and I think we'll go back again next year too.
On Sundays they do an Apple pancake and sausage breakfast...guess where we'll be Sunday morning?
