Apple Picking!

I have so many posts to catch up on! We just got home from my first camping trip yesterday, and I have lots to share about that, but this post will be about another first: My first time picking apples!

The day didn't start out too great. Lots of rain and clouds!

Our first stop was Cracker Barrel. I love shopping in their store. They always have the most unique and fun stuff!

I got the best French toast ever and of course a coffee to go! We also got this little container of mints: They're little barrels! So cute.

We finally made it! The orchard we went to is called Mercier Orchard. I wish the day had been prettier. The property was so beautiful.

The store was full of all kinds of stuff! It was really crowded so I didn't get to look around as much as I would have liked, but I did see a few interesting things. The last picture is of the line for the bakery... CRAZY.

We did manage to get a fried apple pie and a ginger ale. The pie was probably one of the best I'd ever had!

We finally made it up to the orchard. It was really cool! I had never picked an apple or eaten one fresh off the tree.

I felt so "fall" doing it!

We walked all the way to the top of the hill and the view was beautiful! Hopefully next time we won't have such yucky weather to deal with! 076
