Pickin' Apples

Well, I have officially begun the task of creating mine and Brandon's "Fall schedule." Yeah, I know...I'm such a nerd. We haven't decided what all we want to do this Fall, but we have decided that we do want to go pick our own apples. I know, it sounds dorky, but I think it will be quite fun, and definitely different. I didn't even know you could do that here in TN, especially not in our area, but there are actually more apple orchards in our area than you think. I haven't decided which one I want to go to yet. There is one in Mt. Juliet and one in Goodlettsville. In Goodlettsville, you get a 5 gallon basket for $12, which isn't bad at all, but I'm not sure what kinds of apples they have yet.
We're also going back to the Pumpkin patch in October. That seems to be a tradition for us, which we started last year. We went to the pumpkin patch, got several large and small "punkins," as I call them," and came home and spent the afternoon painting and carving pumpkins. It was so much fun. I can't wait until we have little ones to take to places like that... sometimes it almost seems empty or we are missing out on something when we go places like that. I know, I know, don't rush it.
The only other (vague) thing on my list is to visit some of the state parks. I love to go on nature walks during the Fall and see the leaves change. I would love to take a trip to Fall Creek Falls. If anyone wants to join us on any of our excursions, just let us know. The more the merrier!

Yea for apple picking and the pumpkin patch! I love fall things too and I've made our fall schedule too!! (I'm reading your blog and thinking, Are we the same person??) I wish we lived closer and we could make a double date out of it!

That is going to be so much fun. I took Abby to the pumpkin patch last year before she could even walk. This year I plan on taking her again, and I know it's going to be even more fun. You should let me know when you and Brandon plan on going and where. Maybe we could meet up; cause I know Buddy doesn't want to go to the pumpkin patch. Well Happy Fall!
