I thought that I never liked Fall but I think that I actually always have, I just could never admit it. Of course I am sad to see Summer go but I really do love this time of year. The leaves changing color, apple picking, pumpkin patches, hot cocoa and apple cider, warm fires, crunchy leaves, hoodies...I love it all! Maybe I am just realizing it more now that I have kids, everything seems more fun with kids doesn't it!? Besides, I think the only reason I don't like it is because I know the negative 30 degrees is right around that corner. Now THAT I don't like!
Last week we went to a local apple farm that we go to every year. And although they didn't have pony rides this year, Alexa quickly got over the disappointment of that with all the other stuff we were able to do.
Of course we did some apple picking...
The kids loved feeding the goats...
And climbing the fences.
We also went on a hayride, went through the maze, climbed in the hay bails and ate apple brats for lunch. And the weather was perfect for it all...beautiful and sunny but a little chilly!
