Happy Harvest

It's THAT time of year... apple picking time. It is a long-standing tradition in our family. For many many years now, every fall we have gone to a U-Pick apple orchard as a family and had an enjoyable time picking apples.

As our children grew up and left home, we continued to go. Now it's just Brock and he does love going to the apple orchard... so we still plan to go. The problem is, we've moved and we can't find the "perfect" apple orchard. For Brock, it's not just about picking apples. LOL! He wants to ride out to the orchard on a wagon pulled by the big tractor! And he wants to feed the goats and sheep and even a llama or two at the petting zoo. And of course he wants to sample the fresh apple cider (they give free samples at our "old/perfect" orchard) and even purchase a treat - apple pie, apple donuts, fudge, pastries! YUM!!!

So, our search continues. We are looking for the right apple orchard for this year's outing.

In the meantime, I have created a Happy Harvest card, complete with a basket filled with gorgeous apples!

Yum! Now, where is the caramel dip to go with those apples?
