A Sweet Escape

I went apple picking for the first time a few weeks ago and it was so much fun! Walking through the rows and rows of fresh and delicious apple trees made me feel like I was in a far off land. We picked so many apples! We ended up leaving with a huge bucket of all different types of apples for only $8! I discovered so many new tpes of apples I never hear dof before and of course taste tested them. I also discovered my new favorite apple. It's called the Crispin. It is very similar to the Granny Smith and a Golden Delicious, but with a bit more bite. I always thought I liked the sweeter apples, but I think I prefer more of a tart flavor.

I had a great time on my first apple picking adventure, and I can't wait to go again! Have you ever been apple picking? What are some of your favorite fall activities?

These photos are fantastic! SSB and I did some apple picking and pumpkin picking last year and it was a lot of fun. Today we're going to the pumpkin patch but it's all cold and rainy (boooo) so I probably won't get very many photos.
