On the same day we went to that beautiful pumpkin patch... we also went to an apple orchard! We woke up bright and early thinking we would get there before the crowd and the heat... but unfortunately we had the exact same idea as everyone else! The sun was already at a blistering 80 degrees and the crowd was everywhere making everything a bit more complicated. The day quickly got tiring as the kids quickly got more dusty and cranky.
Finally everything was able to settle down once we recouped and got some food in our tummies. We enjoyed a relaxing picnic under the shade and realized that even if we didn't get a bag full of apples, were all sticky from sweating, and had lungs full of dust... it was the perfect day because we got to spend time with family.
