Only an hour west of Washington puts one in apple picking country. Macintosh, Fuji, you name it – they grow it… and you can pick it yourself. The kids had a great time wandering through the orchard and picking out tonight’s dessert (fresh apple pie!).
I suspect this fall is filled with firsts of many – we will definitely go berry & apple picking again, year after year!
Each October, our local firehouses hold an open house as part of fire prevention month festivities. Peter is a HUGE firetruck fan, so it was a must-do activity this weekend. Area farms also hold fall festivals and Halloween pumpkin patches. We were joined at a farm by Peter’s preschool classmate Matthew & his mom. The boys & Emma had a great time running around, seeing farm animals & playing in the hay maze.
