It is finally starting to feel like fall which means that it's time to start participating in all of the activities that make this season so special like visiting a pumpkin patch, drinking hot beverages and going apple picking! This past weekend, I was in North Carolina for my grandmother's 90th birthday party and a huge family reunion (There were 25 of us!!)
When we had a little bit of free time on Sunday, one of my cousins, Emily, and I decided to go to Sky Top Orchard which is a huge apple orchard near our grandparent's house. We have gone apple picking here for the past few years and it always helps me get into the spirit of fall! I love grabbing a basket and walking through the acres of apple trees collecting as many as I can to take home and eat plain or to bake into an apple pie. My favorite part about visiting Sky Top Orchards though is picking up a dozen of their hot apple cider homemade doughnuts on my way out... yum!
If you're looking for a fun fall activity, dress up in a cozy sweater and head to a nearby apple orchard! But don't delay, apple picking season is almost over...
