“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers”L.M Montgomery
I couldn’t agree more, L.M Montgomery! October is one of the most magical months. And yes, I could be biased given that it is my birthday month, but, there is nothing like crisp morning air and pumpkin spice lattes! (basic – I know)
One of my favorite October activities is getting up for an early morning drive to a farm for apple picking and pumpkin picking. I found this one farm about 4 years ago and I haven’t looked back since – it has become a tradition of mine!
There is apple picking.. the kind of apple picking you can dream of. You walk all the way up this big hill and once you reach the hill top there are hundreds of apple trees over looking the valley. It is the most peaceful and beautiful thing! They have rides set up for the kids, food vendors, live music, pony rides, pumpkin picking but my favorite of all… apple cider donuts! It’s what I wait all season for.
With all of the apples we took home, I was able to make 4 apple pies! Oh, and my fall hat – which was so fitting for this adventure I found on amazon for just under $20! https://amzn.to/33tOjH3 Color in camel
Pumpkin picking – an all time favorite. I think my parents set me up to be a fall lover. 1. my birthday – nothing they could have helped as I was not a planned pregnancy. However, I sure am grateful! But, 2. my first halloween they dressed me up as the cutest pumpkin in the patch! I think my fate was sealed at that exact moment…
Pumpkins, gords, fall corn and hay bales galore! All the items I needed to decorate my front porch with.
One day up at the farm makes memories that last a lifetime. I hope one day, when my children have their children – they talk about the memories they have of driving up to the farm for apple picking and pumpkin picking. I hope they make apple pies with their children and I hope they decorate for fall just as I do.
