Apple Picking

  So, today we ventured out to the eastern end of Long Island to pick some apples with two of our four  boys. The weather was perfect,we were able to ride some horses,which was a nice treat, and we had an afternoon filled with pumpkins,apples,lots of produce,animals(the farm kind,not my kids),and of course,a hay ride. I came home with a ridiculous amount of,I need to figure out what to do with it all! Here are some pics from the adventure.

   Our first stop was a field filled with peppers,tomatoes and eggplant. We picked plenty of our own,but then spotted a bag of freshly picked goodies that someone had we gladly took the goods with us.
   The fields were vast,and the bushes so high,that we were joking that someone could get lost for days in there.....then we came upon to ladies who had unfortunately lost there keys out here....can you imagine?
  We then paid the farmer and headed down the road in pursuit of some apples.This place was filled with fall fun...candy apples,cider donuts, activities for the kids,and of course, apple trees.Off they go....
   We headed into the orchard,which unfortunately was not so full of apples, but we did manage to put a bag together..some gala,jonagold,granny smith,and fujis.
   So, after picking apples, we checked out some of  the animals ,then headed over to take a quick ride on some horses...this horse was named Brownie,and my kids were in love!

   We also loved seeing all of the corn stalks and pumpkins.It was truly a perfect day.

   Once back at home, we unloaded all of our goddies,and boy, was there a lot! Looks like there will be a lot of tomato,eggplant and pepper meals in our near future.That and some apple pie!!!
  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
