Fall is here and it is time for lots of good things: cooler temperatures, awesome colors of the trees as they move to winter “mode”, and apple picking!
I was invited by friend to join them in taking their young daughters for a fun outing of apple picking about an hour or so north of Atlanta in the north Georgia mountains at Hillcrest Orchards. This is something I was highly unlikely to ever put on my quite-full to-do or want-to-do list but the opportunity to be with friends and see the kids do something like this was something I did not want to miss.
I have no mind for types of plants or fruits. I know an apple is an apple but if you put three different apples in front of me, I’d be hard pressed to tell you if they are this or that. So that’s my way of saying don’t ask me what types I saw or which was my favorite 🙂 It will also explain why no photo caption will say anything more specific than “apples.”
The girls had a lot of fun going around the multiple aisles of different kinds of apples and picking them from the tree (not the ground!).
They left with greatly loaded bags, too heavy for them to carry. But the important part is they had fun! And so did we watching them enjoy themselves though I may also add the beautiful day up in the north Georgia mountains was quite enjoyable.
Do you have other fall traditions? – or other traditions that help keep the doctor away? 🙂
