Minnetonka Orchards 2012Posted: October 6, 2012
Hi there….how are you on this chilly Saturday?
We made our annual pilgrimage to the apple orchard today, and it was a far cry from the weather we had last year. I.E. 40-some degrees in 2012, compared to 80+ in 2011. Soooo, you’ll notice….we’re a bit more bundled up! Winter jackets, stocking caps, mittens?? Gaaaahhh.
As always, though, we had a wonderful time.
Lunchtime! Hot dogs, brats, and a veggie burger for all.
I regret that we fell short on a big discovery last year – the grilled onion/apple combination. Major, enormous fail for us. It is so-freaking-good….how have we been missing this??
Okay – so everyone, anytime you grill – you must grill onions and apples together. Okay? Okay.
Here’s how we spent the rest of the afternoon….
Petting zoo – a calf this year!
A walk in the woods….
And finally – to the apples!
Then the corn maze:
Now the haystack for a little manhandling….
And, to round out the day – a face paint:
Here’s how we’re spending the evening….ahhhh, fires are back!
