Apple Pickin'

Finally....a sunny weekend! We decided to take advantage of the nice weather and visit a local farm to participate in some apple picking. This one was much more commercialized than the one we went to for blueberries, and had a whole market and everything. They had made apple cider doughnuts, so of course we had to try them out. Delicious!!!

After our morning snack, we boarded the hayride and took off for the apple orchard. We got to sit right behind the tractor, and Michael was mesmerized. Michael tried helping us pick the apples off the trees once we got into the orchard, but he got frustrated easily since they were harder to pick than the blueberries. So he helped by putting them in the bag instead...always a helper!

On our way out, we got to go through a corn maze and scope out the pumpkin patch (a future trip to watch for!)
