Guess Where We Went Today?


Yep, we went apple picking!!  This was the first thing I had listed on my Fall Bucket List (which I will share with you in a few days), and I was excited to get it checked off the list.  Fall is by far my favorite season and apple picking has been a recent addition to my must-do fall list.

We were joined by my sweet Sister-in-law and her awesome family! 


We got there early (before the heat set in) and had the orchards pretty much to ourselves.  There was still dew on the apples!

The apples were perfect for picking (and tasting), and we filled our bags to the brim!  We were lugging our over-full bags back to the car just as the sun peeked it’s way out from behind the clouds and started heating up the day.

Of course we stopped by the shop and picked up a gallon of cider and Joe’s favorite fried apple pies.
