Apple Pickin'

Last week my Mother-in-law came for a visit. We decided that since none of us had ever been apple-picking that we would find an orchard and go. When we lived in NY we had a couple of apple trees on a hill behind our house so, we never really needed to go anywhere to get apples!
We found a great place in Stow, MA called Honeypot Hill Orchards. It was about a 40 minute drive. Let me just say, that the drive there was breathtaking. New England in the fall is beyond words.
Here we are posing by the silly scarecrow.
Can you see the tiny turtle on the rock? I thought this was so cute.
Of course, you can't resist sampling a big, juicy apple!
My husband saw some good ones up a little higher than any of us could reach so,
of course he did a little climbing.
It rained on our drive there, but managed to stop long enough for us to pick
our apples and have a visit with the farm animals. The rain started up again as we drove away.
Thanks, God. :)

us with nana.
Of course, you can't go apple picking without some apple cider made right there
and some yummy cider donuts...they were a big hit!

I think we might make a tradition out of this.
Did any of you pick apples this year? I'd love to hear about it.
