Fall is in the Air

Apples and Pumpkins.
Clearly, fall is here!
Last year at about this same time we were on our way back from somewhere (I can't remember where - its been a whole year and my mind is fried from a wonderfully full weekend!) and we happened upon this little Apple Orchard. McClure's Tate Orchard to be exact. And What. A. Place. It was so wonderful we decided to go back again this year. The downside? We only wished he had more time to spend there!

We ate lunch at the Apple Dumplin' Inn, walked up and down the apple tree orchards, played with the barn animals, fed the barn animals and even rode some of the barn animals.
We picked apples, selected a pumpkin, chose apples for teachers, apples for pies, drank warm cider, ate dumplins and watched out for bees that were busy making honey! Can you guess which pumpkin was my favorite in this picture?And now for a very rare family photo:If you notice Logan then you will understand why it is so difficult to get a photo of us all together. The fact that he is kissing a pumpkin squash warms my heart to the core. The fact that Lukas has an amazing smile warms my heart. Landry's half on and half off socks warm my heart. And the fact that my husband packed Landry around the orchard warmed my heart, although I am sure I would have been much warmer had I been the one to haul her around! But this made it all okay that I was cold:

Daddy's lil' girl.

Life is so good.
