Annual Apple Orchard Outing

I'm a little behind on posting. I was trying to hang on to the last bit of summer but packing up the college kids to head back to school and starting school for our youngest still at home I found myself in a whirlwind and here we are smack dab in the middle of Fall! Weeks ago we took our annual trip to the mountains to our favorite apple orchard.
 We've been going to the same place since our children were really small.  It is always such a fun outing.  Our favorite little orchard that we fell in love with years ago was somewhat off the beaten path. But just like our children, the orchard has grown and changed over the years. This year was very crowded.
 Other people must have found our little secret orchard and realized what a great place it was too!
 We filled our baskets with fuji, granny smith and a few honeycrisp apples (they had mostly been picked by the time we went apple picking).
 Wonderful family memories have been made at this old apple orchard. I like looking back on the pictures from year to year to see how much the kids have grown.

What a beautiful day it was in the mountains!

 I'm so thankful for the chances that we have to all be together at the same time. It seems rare these days with the kids away at college and medical school and everyone has different schedules but these are treasured moments indeed.
