When Fall approaches in this household, it means two things. 1. A Halloween Party and 2. Apple Orchards.
Maybe it is because Jamie really likes apples this year, or it is because she is trying to make up for lost time this Summer, but we have definitely made the orchard circuit thus far. Luckily, I was spared from most of it or I think I would have gone crazy.
Orchard #1 - Carlson Orchards
Following the orchard (and about 60 pounds of apples) we enjoyed some smore's at the cabin. While I am not positive, I think this was Sylvia's first smore.
Orchard #2 - Carpenter Nature Center
This trip was with Trinity, Jamie, and Sylvia. Dad tried to hold down the fort with Violet!
Orchard #3 - McDougall's Apple Junction
This trip was through Sylvia's school and Jamie was lucky enough to volunteer as a chaperon. Similar to the nature center, this "orchard" also had animals, like the goats shown below
as well as giant mounds of straw for the kids to climb on
and even a playground which featured a large wooden train.
You would think that is it for this year right? WRONG. This Sunday we will be headed up to Waldoch Farm for one more fun day outside!
