After yesterday’s fail, I sat down with my cup of peppermint tea and focused on writing about our trip to the orchard this past weekend. We used to make a family trip every fall when ~T~ was a boy to pick our own apples or pumpkins. Last Saturday’s trip brought back lots of fun memories.
Our local orchard has it all. Something for everyone. 🙂
Beautiful displays fill the front yard of the big red barn
which houses the fruit stands, gift shop and snack bar/cafe.
All the fun starts out the back door.
The hay wagon will take you to the pumpkin patch or you can walk through a small tunnel covered in morning glories.
A huge pumpkin patch holds the perfect pumpkin for every child and family.
Past the pumpkins is the orchard with rows and rows and rows of apple varieties.
Some of the trees were overloaded with fruit waiting to be picked.
Just beyond the apples was a beautiful, peaceful lake. The weather was perfect and we had a lovely morning.
Best of all were the apple cider donuts for breakfast on the deck the next day. 🙂
I’ll have a few more photos on the Photo Blog soon.

I wouldn’t let myself read blogs or comments until this post was finished. See. I can focus. 🙂 I’m off to do my blog walk now.
Have a great day!
