Today we went to Apple Blossom Farm. It was a beautiful day-sunny and warm which was nice. The kids played on the big playground, rode the slide, and fed the bunnies. Then we were on to the bakery where they had fresh apple cider donuts and apple cider-Yummy!! After our snack, we went out and picked 9 pounds of golden delicious apples. If they had a bruise Michael was quick to pick them out of the bag-only "perfect" apples allowed. After we finished with that we got the bad news that the pumpkins weren't ready. With all of the rain, the pumpkin patches were muddy and they weren't letting people go pick right now. But we did get all of those apples and tonight may be making my favorite treat: caramel apples.
It was a great day!
