Apple-picking and hayrides

What tastes better than fresh fruit, picked right from the vine? Fruit you pick yourself! Although the weather report threatened rain, we bundled up and drove out to a farm to pick apples. Luckily, by the time we got out there, it had turned into a warm, sunny afternoon, and we made apple-picking our first item on the agenda.





Just jump on a wagon ride when you want to go deeper into the orchard for some Stayman Winesaps.













Thankfully the orchard had an all-you-can-eat-while-you-pick policy, because you couldn't stop these two from sampling the merchandise and I don't think we've ever eaten so many apples at one time! 













And you can't leave a farm in October without grabbing a couple pumpkins too, right? Alice found a tiny one (Alice-sized), and Everett got the biggest one he could spot (Daddy-sized). Quite a healthy haul for one afternoon at the farm. And we'll be eating apples at every meal for the next month.
