I love apple picking. Especially since the orchard we go to is family owned and sits high on a hill with pretty views of the surrounding landscape.
On this particular visit the delicious smell of apple pies baking in the oven filled the air inside the farm stand. Apple cider, apple bread and, various different pies were available for purchase along with pumpkins and other fall treats. We got a big ol' pumpkin and I plan on painting it.. preferably with a turquoise pattern. Oh yes.
Again, like the weather for our hike the day before, it was 80 degrees for this outing and it was funny to be sweating under the hot sun while picking apples.
Now all we need to do is find some sort of Oktoberfest or fair/festival and our fall season will be complete. I love fall things.
