Fall Frolick

Apple picking day means that we drive our mini-van up and down the hilly orchard alleys, looking for the most loaded Jonagold trees we can find, until we settle on the perfect spot.
Sampling the sweet, crunch fruit is definitely part of the experience.
What a fun day, made even better because there were cousins to share it with!
Baby Lillian seemed to enjoy the day too! ;-)
I love my crazy, adventure-loving girls.
Apple slushies and fighting off the wasps are part of the experience too!

The younger kids and I made it to the pumpkin patch twice this year. Here we are at a preschool program, with my mom's group. What's not to love about a hayride? (Oh, maybe itchy hay finding its way into your socks and other unmentionable places?)
And then the whole crew went last Saturday for our annual Pumpkin Day celebration.
And Clara's favorite part is the kettle corn. We all enjoy it, but she is CRAZY about kettle corn. I must say that sharing this treat, while listening to the live music and taking in all the visual beauty of the pumpkin patch with the people I love, makes for a great time. We often feel so busy. It's important to take these times as a family, to just relax and enjoy being together.
