You know it's Fall when we go apple pickin'

This past weekend we went to an apple orchard close to our house and had such a great time. We had never been to this particular orchard before and didn't know what to expect, but it turned out to be a blast!  When we first got there, we looked at all of the beautiful mums and tried to teach Reese and Will to smell the flowers, not pick the flowers.  We ended up getting a couple to take home and plant in front of our house. Here is Will smelling the flowers.

After we were done looking at the mums, the tractor arrived to take us to the best apple pickin' site.  This had to be the highlight of the morning.  Who doesn't love riding on a tractor??  Here is Olivia and then the three of them from behind.

When we were dropped off at the trees, we started picking and eating the apples.  There was a nice clearing between the rows of trees, so Greg and I sat down and watched the kids pick the apples.  Here are some pictures of our apple picking.

After apple picking, we rode on the tractor over to the pumpkin patch.  They had a huge corn maze that we went through and then it was off through the fields to find the perfect pumpkin.  

After a fun morning at the orchard, we left with mums, apples, caramel dip, apple cider, AND the perfect pumpkin.
