Last weekend we went apple picking with our kids… And by apple picking, I mean paying an extreme amount of money for a tractor ride and about 10 apples. In my next life I’m coming back as the owner of an apple orchard; those guys have a good thing going!
Are you Ready for Fall?
I’m still holding out a little bit for a few more weeks of summer, but I’m excited to see the fall through my kiddos’ eyes again! I LOVE all of the pumpkin carving, apple picking, jumping into the leaves – especially with my little munchkins:)
Next time we go apple picking, we’ll go back to a tried-and-true spot that we really like. One of our favorite places to go is Garden Patch Farms in Homer – it’s a smaller spot than some of the orchards around our place, much less of a circus, and FABULOUS produce. Not just apples, they also have the best Concord grapes, tons of vegetables, and a really great storefront. Definitely worth the trip in the Chicago area!
Are you in the Chicago suburbs? What’s your favorite spot to go for fall fun??
