Apple Picking

One of my favorite memories from when I was a little girl was going apple picking with your Auntie Sara in Virginia. She adopted this as a tradition, and she goes every year. Your daddy and I have gone a couple of times since we moved to Atlanta, but not consistently. This year, we thought we'd tag along on Auntie Sara's annual trip to Ellijay, Georgia to visit B.J. Reece orchards. The scenery was beautiful.

You had so much fun playing near the trees and reaching up for apples.

After we had picked lots of apples, we took a break for a picnic. Just like Mommy and Daddy, you're always up for a snack!

There are lots of other things to do at the orchard, too. You're a little too young for the petting zoo this year, but you did get to make friends with a baby goat through the fence!

You also got to pick out a pumpkin in the pumpkin patch!

Later, you painted that pumpkin with just a little help from Mommy!

Fall is in full swing here in our house! So far, you really seem to be enjoying your first fall. You're even putting up with Mommy's incessant apple-themed baking and cooking, now that we're stuck with several bushels!
