Fall Fun

This Fall we did two things I have always been excited about doing with kids. Apple Picking and Pumpkin Picking! We did both events with our Moms group and had such a great time.

First up was Apple Picking. We drove out to a local orchard, it wasn't too fancy or exciting but the apples were ripe and ready. I did most of the picking and Amelia did most of the eating but she did get in on the action a bit!

Next we headed to Jim's Pumpkin farm for a hay rack ride to pick our own pumpkin. Amelia loved the ride and loved checking out all of the pumpkins before picking just the right one. Before and after the ride we took advantage of all the fun at the pumpkin patch. There was mini John Deere tractor rides (this one's for your Grandpa and Great Grandpa), wooden horse riding and just plain running around and having fun.

We did make one more Apple Orchard trip before fall was over. We met Lisa Anderson and her girls Ella and Ava at Apple Holler just south of Milwaukee. Now this place has it all, animals of all sorts, corn mazes, apple picking but most importantly APPLE CIDER DONUTS! We had a blast and of course took some donuts home!

Fall is the best!
