Every year we go apple picking. We have our usual favorites but this time we decided to try some place new... Apple Hill Farm. It was a bit of a ways away but it was near our favorite brew pub so I was game.
They had several varities like red and golden delicious, macoun, jonagold and opalescent which were HUGE but I did not like the layout. It did not have that u-pick kinda feel. There was a private house right in the middle that you had to walk around. It wasn't at all crowded which I guess some may like but I like when there are lots of people. It makes it feel more like an event, more festive. But what do I know. It seems the rest of the family liked it just fine.
My favorite shot of the day...
Eating the fruits of their labor. LOL! Get it!? ;)
Down by the parking lot, they had an old fire engine set up with bales of hay and pumpkins. Really cute. The kiddos had to get in for a ride. Of course, they fought about who would get to drive first. But I managed to get this cute pic after the hullabaloo.
And, I plan on making Martha Stewart's apple cake with all the golden delicious apples we picked. Mmmm.
