Fall at Last

DSC_0544

Fall is right around the corner, and I can hardly stand it!  This has been a long and HOT summer here, and I am ready to pull on some jeans and wrap myself up in warm sweaters.  It is hard to believe I am saying that considering we had a horrible winter, with three large blizzards that practically shut down our area.  But I am ready for football, pumpkins, Halloween, and  long walks with a cool breeze.  As a fall kick off, we met our dear friends at the apple orchard last week.  We got there before the huge crowds hit, so the kids were able to find apples right on their level.  In years past we usually need a long pole to pull down apples from the top of the tree, but not this year!

A view from the looking tower...apple doughnuts, ice cream, peaches for sale.  What more could you ask for?

The apple wagon!! Of course someone, who you know very well, had to be in charge of the wagon's direction and speed.  Bossy little guy, not sure where he got that from?

Great photos, Clare. I'm still learning how to work my new, fancy camera. Do you have any tips?

I'm ready for fall, too, but I'm not ready for shorter amounts of daylight. That's just too depressing!

amazing pictures!!!! Love that one of Bradley picking the apple off the tree.. All I have to say about the bossy is I (the sister that was only allowed to watch Annie and Top Gun growing up because her big sister was in charge of the movies) has no idea where he could have possible got that from! *wink* See you tomorrow!
