Fall Favorite

It think that I have finally made it official...Fall is my favorite season.  Yes, I love the free schedule of Summer (and going to the pool), but there is nothing like the comfort that Fall brings.  There are a few things that I enjoy doing during Fall...one of them is apple picking.

We have been apple picking for a few years now and always go to the same place...Lynd's.  Lynd's is a little pricey, but it is close to where my mom lives and it has become familiar...and those who know me know I love familiar :)

Here are some (unedited) pictures from our day:
We always go when it is time to pick Jonathan apples because they make such good apple crisp (my fav...recipe found here)

Who do you think is the most excited?

This year we got a 20 lb bag...looks like a lot of crisp in our future :)
My favorite apple, and Lynd's most popular, is the Honey Crisp.  It is usually very crowded on the days to pick these apples so I just usually buy a 1/2 peck when we pick the Jonathon apples.
This year Mommy and Caleb munched on yummy kettle corn...it was still warm.
The next Fall outing will be to go & grab a few of these guys :)

What do you love about Fall?

Love fall! Love apple picking (Jonathans are my favorite too)! And we love going out to Lynd's... Looks like y'all had a great time. Enjoy those apple crisps!

You got some really GREAT pics! I love all those things about fall too, it's my most favorite time of year! And I love wearing fun boots, cozy sweaters and puffy vests too! :-)

I still want to make that apple crisp! I bought all the ingredients last year and never got around to putting them together, shame on me! I must do it this year! Maybe that could be my birthday cake next week...mmmm!

My mom and sister are visiting next weekend, we should go apple picking! Love the family pic you got with your mom, too bad you weren't in it too!

Have a great time enjoying those apples! ;-)

Fall's my very favorite season too. We haven't gone apple picking yet, but I can't wait to!

What DON'T I love about fall? Lol! When I was little, I could never find another soul who loved fall as much as I did--except my Papa. He and I shared that. My favorite things about fall in no particular order:
*My birthday ;oP
*Apple Picking
*College (esp. Hokie!) Football
*the colors--all earth toned and gorgeous!
*the leaves
*the crispness
*the SMELL is SO divine
*sweatshirts/sweaters and jeans
*Hot drinks to warm my hands

There are more but I'm about to hijack your comments. ;o)

Honey Crisps are, by far, my favorite apple, although Johnathans are pretty wonderful as well. :o)

It looks like a fun time was had by all. Hooray! Knocked something right off MY fall bucket list--color me jealous. ;o)

Hi Kelli!
I love fall too. So much to love about the change of seasons I think.
I can't wait to go apple picking this year! I am hoping we go soon.
I saw pumpkins in the store today and was in a rush but I need to go back and buy lots of them!
Happy fall day to ya.

Oh, and maybe next year you could make it to blog sugar!! It was really something.

I wish we had an apple orchard near us. Those pics make your day look like so much fun! I want some of that popcorn too...yum!

Brooke said...

Awww - what a fun outing. This reminds me that we need to get our behinds to the orchard soon and pick us some apples before fall passes us by.
Lovely shares ;D

Kelli @ RTSM said...

I'm so jealous! Picking apples is on my list of things to do one day! I may just have to come up for a visit and go with you to the apple orchard:)

Becca @ R We There Yet Mom? said...

I love hearing about your apple picking trips! Makes me jealous that you get fall!!

We LOVE Honey Crisp apples - but they are $3.97 a pound here!!!!

And your pictures look fantastic!!!


Stephanie said...

How fun! I will definitely have to look for something this family oriented around here! I love the cool weather, the smell, the rain, the colors, the wind, the FOOD! Oh I love it ALL!

These are such fun pictures of going to the orchard. Love Jamison's enthusiasm!! Cute.
I too love familiar. We just went to the orchard earlier this week. I need to go back though because it was a very dreary day and we only stocked up on the already picked apples.
