Apples Bustin’ & Blossomin’

Recently we hit a local orchard with Mem and Gramp for some fall fun. We roamed about and picked a bit, then topped it off with cider, doughnuts and apple blossoms (is that what they were called, Mum?)

Here are a messload of photos:

I think C might actually be in love with this pumpkin:

    Yup, dumplings. And they only make them on the weekends. Friday is not a weekend! Tell me…was the outside a pie crust like thing or a bread like thing? I gotta try to make them at home. We had issues with finding apples low enough for littles to pick! They had 5 rows of trees roped off that were busting with apples…I was soooo tempted to sneak over and pick there but I resisted! Love Tompsons!

    Hi Jenn! Too funny – we had to walk a ways to find some but they were there. All those full trees by the parking lot/street are for handicapped access. I didn’t have a dumpling myself but it looked pie-crusty for sure.
