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!

I think the last time I went to an apple orchard was when I was about 10, in the mountains of California.

They're fun Kristina, you should go! At least go for the turnovers and other goodies like that. It's worth it!
