Happy T day everyone!! The sky is amazing right now as I'm writing this, love when that happens in the mornings. Today I will be sharing about my trip to an apple orchard a couple weeks ago. We stumbled upon this cute little place years ago and try to go back at least once every fall. Sadly, it's not quite the same (the dogs have passed on and it's more business like then family) but the have fresh cider and cider donuts that I can't resist. What makes this fall special is my daughter Kristin being home now, she's missed having fall and I want to do as much as we can with this short awesome season. Along for the ride was also my mom ( her first time here) and my sister Annie her second or third time here. It's about 20mts from my home so just right for a mini day trip. Funny in the past I'm in and out of there within an hour, this time we spent two hours there, lots of pictures and just enjoying the outdoors and each other. LOVE THIS!! So are you ready, here is the entrance...
I love the inside of this place, apples everywhere, natural light, smells so good too. It was much colder inside so we had to run back out to the van and get our coats. This isn't an orchard where you can pick apples but instead pick what you want from all the crates of them. I'm not sure if they use the machines to make the cider anymore either, haven't seen them working but could be coming on the wrong day too. It would be fun to see them doing this again though.
They have some sauces, spices available too. I loved the cute little decorations here
here is the best part of the vist, the little bakery right inside. They make everything fresh right there in this little place, those cider donuts are my favorite with a cup of hot cider please. My mom got their cinnamon roll which looked soooo good. My sister ordered a little grape pie to take home and loved it. I was very happy to see they had plain apple cider this year, last year they made it into a hot carmel drink which I didn't like at all. They also have a cider slushie machine if you like it cold. Would have taken better and more pictures but their was people everywhere and I didn't want them in my pictures but hope this gives you the overall feeling of the place. Cozy and fall and YUMMY!!
here is my cup picture for the day. Almost forgot to take it so half the cider is gone and my donut too.
then we went outside to enjoy the view!! Isn't it gorgeous!! Hoping to go back again soon to see the leaves have more color on them. Love that sky behind the trees too.
My mom loved this spot and said she could have stayed all day here
This is one of my MOST favorite pictures of the day. Don't think we have ever had us 3 together or at least not one that came out this nice. That's my daughter in the middle and I'm on the left and sister Annie on the right. Good thing Kristin sat since she's so much taller then us. A HAPPY DAY!
I love that my mom and I are getting more pictures together too!!
another personal favorite for me! I love the color blue with bits of red
A last reflection picture before we left....sigh.....
Thanks mom, Annie, Kristin for this fun trip, so happy we went and can't wait to go again. I thought it would be nice to share my Project Life pages from this trip too, so happy to have fall in my album!
sorry one last picture, this was at my mom's house afterwards. Shahrul I know you will like this picture. This is some kind of fungus growing on my mom's tree, it's actually kinda of pretty. My sister said it looks like the top of a pumpkin pie and she's right it does.
A look at the pages! Sorry for the glare, didn't realize it till now. Click on it to see better. I was so happy to use the journal cards from the Seasons kit my dear friend Nancy got me. HI NANCY!! The fall ones are my favorite. I love seeing all these pictures here, no way could I have just chosen one or two. I also put my art journal page in here since it fit the theme and feeling inspired to paint again.
Ok, one last picture before I go visit Elizabeth for tea time!! Please stop by and say hello to her and the others sharing what their up to on this beautiful cool fallllllllll DAY!!
This is for my friend Susan. I was inspired after seeing her daily journal page on her son being sick. Now I have a way to remember what I did to my thumb. It's doing much better now too, YAY!
Have a wonderful day ladies and thanks so much for reading this loooong post!
