The Apple Orchard

At the beginning of October we went to a nearby apple orchard. It was lovely!

We picked some apples...(duh)

The best ones were up pretty high, so Peter and John got to use their tree-climbing skills to get them.

Meanwhile, Sam stayed safe and sound down on the ground and played with the rotten apples that were there...

We visited the pumpkin patch, where I was unsuccessful in getting a good enough picture of the boys together to make Halloween/fall cards to send to my family. I tried!

The boys had their heights measured. Who knew that apple orchards could be so versatile? 

I picked out a big pot of yellow chrysanthemums to put next to our front door. Mums are the flower of fall and I love them!

And we enjoyed the beautiful scenery.

We also enjoyed the freshest, hottest, most delicious apple turnovers I've ever had. I love this place!
