Long ago, we decided to make the most of being a military family.
Which means doing all we can to find every fun and free thing to do within reasonable driving distance of the place we currently call “home”.
Since we’ve moved up here to New England, finding fun things to keep us busy has been a piece of cake.
And right now, it’s apple picking season in our neck of the woods.
This year we visited a new apple farm.
One a bit further south.
The one we visited last year sadly had no apples this year due to a late spring freeze.
We were pleased with our decision to visit elsewhere.
So were the kids.
In addition to having apples and raspberries, this orchard also had a very large pumpkin patch.
And a corn maze. And a petting zoo.
While we didn’t actually bring home pumpkins this early, we did let the kids each pick a favorite.
We like to think of it as window shopping.
After visiting the pumpkin patch, we moved on to the petting zoo.
Isabelle was smitten.
No. She did not kiss the goat.
We did, however, manage to lock our lips on some apples.
Lots and lots of apples.
We paid $18 for a bag full of apples.
Which was worth every penny.
To see smiles this big.
Clearly, we are a family that is easily pleased.
This orchard had at least a dozen varieties of apples.
And we tried each and every one.
A few times over.
Then we moved on to the apple cider donuts.
Which were only slightly tastier (and much greasier) than the apples.
They’re pretty famous around these parts, and after trying them, we could see why.
We manage to eat our way through most places we go.
It was a perfect way to spend a beautiful fall day.
We are going all to really miss New England.
But we’ll have made some great memories.
