A Fall Outing



Good Morning--I hope everyone is
staying nice and warm.
Today we have the last Fall outing
installment of "catching up."


 

On a cool Fall Saturday...


 

this fantastic foursome loaded in the
car and headed out to an apple orchard.
We stopped at one but it seemed to us
to be closed so we went to a different
one.


 

A cool windmill at the entrance.


 

The boys rode the bus


 

and the girls posed with the apples and
pumpkins.


 

Pumpkins galore for sale.


 

BUT...this is what we came for!
The variety we got to pick was
Empire. Had not heard of this
variety before but they sure
were tasty. Makes great apple-
sauce.


 

Oh, they never stop being boys.
Dan and Mr. Ken ready to
pick some apples.


 

Would you look at that! Using this "tool"
was a lot harder than it looks!


 

These three look like they are up to
no good. But at least apples were
picked.


 

Ta-Da! We did itm there was enough in our
basket to split evenly between us.


 

Future farmers of America?
NOT!! :)


 

A short rest in the gazebo for
Ms. Nancy and Ms. Melinda.


 

We made some new friends while
walking around. His other companions
were elewhere on the grounds.


 

Inside the barn,


 
 

More new friends.


 
 

Last stop...The bakery.
Oh boy--do they have the
yummies here!




We had a great adventure at the orchard,
It had been a very long time since I had
picked apples, Mr.Ken had never picked
them before and our buds had some
experience.

So that is it, I think I am caught up with
our Fall fun outing and adventures.

Come back on Monday because I am
introducing something fun for the holiday
season and I hope you will join the fun!!!



~Keep on Dreaming~

  8. That looks like a blast. I never knew how they picked apples - I pictured having to climb up a big ladder :) Glad you had fun even though you won't be farmers any time soon.
