A Crisp Autumn Day Spent Apple Picking

The crisp Autumn air has been calling us outdoors. We spent most of the summer hiding in the air conditioning because where we live it is VERY hot in the summer. Autumn is the time we try to spend most days outdoors. One of our favorite family traditions has been apple picking. We drive about an hour and a half to the mountains where there are many apple orchards. We have a favorite that we've gone to since T was 2 years old. Last year we tried another (I dont remember why) but we went back to our favorite this year.

The kids favorite part is always the petting zoo. They always have plenty of friendly animals, including lots of babies.
T found a goat

B loved the geese

She loved the baby cow even more, he got a kiss on the nose

There is a baby goat behind that fence

A couple of piglets were napping in the hay

We had a nice hay ride around the orchard to view all of the beautiful trees and learn where each variety was. Then it was out to the trees for picking.
