I've spent 23 years of my life never once going apple picking. I mean, what the heck was I doing?? It's always been on my 'fall to-do' list but I just never seemed to get around to it. Am I crazy or am I crazy? It was SO MUCH FUN!

I can't start to tell you how much fun I had apple picking. I think I was really missing out this whole time! I'm already itching to go back and pick some more apples. I really had no idea that you could just pick them right off the tree and (after a quick rub) eat them!
Although the weather was pretty meh and overcast, it was the first actual cool day I can remember. We'll just call it the start of fall :) So I grabbed my favorite fall jacket and added some fun layers.
This is also the first breakout of the season for my hunter boots! They were perfect for the trip because we were walking all around in tall grass from row to row and I was really getting into the trees trying to pick the very best apples for Andrew and I!
We went to Wilkens Farm and had a very nice experience. We got there right when they opened to avoid the herds of people (that all seem to come as we left) and the best part about all of it was being the first in line to get some apple cider donuts. "Um hi, yes, I would like 30 donuts please. Nope, just for me, to-go is great, thanks." hahaha I really only had two but I'm pretty sure I could of had like 30 more!
They also have pumpkins and Christmas trees there so I'm pretty sure I need to make my way back there soon. Although I can't imagine it would be nearly as much fun as apple picking was... can you just eat the pumpkins right off the ground? I think not!
Either way, we picked a 'peck' full of apples (aka a bag) and it was more than enough for the both of us. I'm already trying to think how I can create some fun apple based items. Anyone down for some homemade apple cider??
And one for the road...
