Fall Fest Begins!

So today we went on our first Fall Family Outing of the year. We started out by going to get some mums from a farm about 40 minutes from here. We love the mums from this place and they are reasonably priced and grown right there with local farm help. Could you ask for more? So last year was the first year we went there. We took a picture of Lilia with the mums and did the same this year check them out.

I forgot the camera. So we had to make due with the cell phone today. I didn't get as many shots as I wanted of our next adventure. Originally we had planned on heading out to Princeton to apple pick at an orchard where we buy apple cider every year. However I hawk eyed a little homemade sign pointing us to Russo's U Pick Apples. We followed many a sign like it all through the winding back roads of what I think was Burlington County and Monmouth County. I should have taken pictures of the little signs they were just charming.

So off we went apple picking. Here are the high lights.
Hope you enjoyed!

Other fall related thoughts. We bought some apple cider doughnuts that weren't so great and now we are on a quest to find the real deal. Last weekend in VT we had for the first time soft serve maple ice cream AKA Maple Creamies. That was pure bliss for someone who isn't the biggest ice cream fan in the world. Just enough maple and it was real too no fake overly sweet fake maple. I wanted to take a picture of the sign and what not but I forgot. It is a little store just down the road from our camp ground called the Pumpkin Patch.

Happy Fall!
