Sunday at the OrchardPosted: October 9, 2011
It’s October 9….and 80+ degrees today. Yahoo, Indian summer! Keep it coming!
We couldn’t have landed more unbelievable weather for our annual fall pilgrimage to Minnetonka Orchards. It’s time for some apple pickin’!
We started with a stroll through the haunted cemetery:
Then made our way to the orchard.
We had to sample!
Once we had a bag filled with these beauties, we sought out lunch. A veggie burger for me, a brat for DT, and hot dogs for the kiddos.
Whomever invented apple onions is my new favorite hero….*GENIUS*! We’re totally implementing apples into our sauteed onion regimen.
After lunch, we headed up the hill to the retail barn.
As always, the barn was crowded and crazy….
We made our way back down the hill toward the animals….
We rounded out our visit in the corn maze – where’s our compass?!
Such a fun day! We’re all going to sleep well tonight. 🙂
And here, our apple bounty:
Time to make apple crisp!
Hope you made the most of this summer-in-October-weekend – have a great week!
