We are always looking for adventure. I know lots of families do this, but we went to an apple orchard. So maybe it wasn’t adventurous, but this tiny little orchard was made extra special by these two.

There was even a special performance of the new song Ben learned at school.

What I learned is that even when you take a predictable fall trip, even when the directions lead you to a shady orchard behind a trailer with about 12 trees, even when it’s soggy, there is adventure to be had.

We brought home a bushel of apples (sweet varieties for Hope, tart for Ben… they each have a drawer full in the fridge!) to freeze and bake and munch on for weeks to come!
