I might be a hopeless romantic for saying this, but there is something so magical to me about an apple orchard. Being out in nature among 1000 fruit-bearing trees, old barns, and friendly farmers make Stepp’s Hillcrest Orchard one of my favorite places. So I was so happy that Sis’s preschool class was there for a fieldtrip yesterday. Come stroll with us! [Of course, I think this worn old barn door is beautiful. Just smile and nod if you do not share my opinion.] 🙂 Worn painted wood and weathered metal roofs are my happy place. Think they’d notice if I move in here? I heart old barns. Now I’m wondering if this little structure in a field next to a million wildflowers is available for rent. I could see a beautiful celebration here! Oh! And pretty pots of flowers, all in a row. xox I heard more than one little boy ohhh-and-ahhh over the tractors. [I might have a bit, too.] We took a tractor-pulled ride through the rows and rows of apples to our picking spot. Lift, twist, and pull an apple right off the branch. Grab a peck basket at the main barn and pick with us! After apple-picking, we turned our attention to pumpkins. The orchard had a neat row of little pumpkins already cut next to the pumpkin patch, perfect for sweet little hands. Now I’m ready to bake some pumpkin muffins! The weather was perfect, overcast and cool. The kids tromped along the soybean path… …and made their way through the corn maze. Who knew there were so many different varieties, textures, and flavors in an apple? We sampled the fresh-peeled goods. …and I grabbed a couple of goodies back at the main barn too. Thanks for touring along with us! Do you have a favorite fall activity or place? Do tell! And have a glorious day, wheeeeee!
