Hello Fall! Apple Hill Festivities


This past Sunday, we took our first trip to Apple Hill, which is a cute little area comprised of apple orchards and pumpkin patches about an hour away from Tahoe.  We made the trip with Jane {of In the Pink and the Green} and her husband Cameron and had a blast picking apples, drinking pumpkin ale and consuming waaay too many apple goodies!  It was the perfect Fall day...there was even a chill in the air!  Yay for boots and scarves!  ;)


Jane and I "picking" apples!


Apples :: Mums :: Apple Spiced Donuts :: Squash :: Pumpkins


Our little family of three!


The rolling hills!


Cute little orchard


Beautiful grounds!



Pumpkin Patch!



And clearly it wouldn't be a day in Apple Hill without lots of apple trees!


Ethan slept most of the time...he did so well!  Can't wait to take him back next year when he'll be running around and eating fall food with us!

I did not get pictures of all the food, but let me break it down for you.  We had apple sausage, apple slaw, apple spiced donuts, warm apple cider, carmel apples, pumpkin ale, corn dogs AND pie.  Whew. It was quite the day...I might have had a tummy ache that night!  ;)

To see more of our adventures that day, visit Jane's blog!

And we're so glad we got this trip in because it's SNOWING in Tahoe now!  What happened to fall?!!

How is your fall going...are you experiencing chilly weather yet?

  4. Snow already??? Holy moly. It was a little chilly here this morning, and when I say chilly, I mean 48*, but it's supposed to get up to 79* today. Obsessed with that last picture of Ethan!

  6. Those apple spiced donuts look amazing!!! Ethan is so adorable!!! I love the last picture of him! Our weather has been funny here in NY. We've gone from super cold to rain today and then later in the week it's supposed to be in the 70s!
