|Down on the farm!|
First, the weather was perfect. It was overcast with a slight breeze, and just cool enough to remind you it's fall, but not too cool to enjoy the great outdoors! The farm was only about a 35-minute drive from our home and wasn't crowded at all for a Saturday afternoon. When we arrived the kiddos were stoked about their fun play area!

When we checked in we found out that their tractor was not operating and that it would be a five-minute walk to the apple orchards. No problem! The walk was really short and we were apple picking in no time!
Honestly, the trees were pretty picked over, but it was the last weekend of the season for apple picking at their farm. So, next year we'll make sure to get there earlier in the season. Still, we took home some great apples and had a fantastic time picking them ourselves.
The kiddos enjoyed eating some fresh-picked apples while we were out in the orchards. They said that they were the best apples they've ever tasted. There's just something about picking a piece of fruit yourself and the satisfaction it brings! It made my heart smile!
After we picked our apples we checked out at their cute little country store. The kiddos were smitten with the flavored honey straws and apple butter samples. We brought home some apple butter to enjoy at home and remember our special day together.
All in all, it was the perfect way to spend a dreary Saturday afternoon. We'd do it again in a heartbeat!
Have blessed Monday, Y'all!!
