Fall is one of my second favourite season of the year (summer being the first!). I love the fall harvest- apples, squash, potatoes, and pumpkins. It’s all so delicious. And the colours this time of year are absolutely amazing! I’m a visual person so my heart becomes so filled with fall.
We have made it a yearly tradition with our family to go Apple Picking. We have started this from the time Leah was just able to walk. Our kids have done a number of fruit pickings this year– strawberries, blueberries and now apples. And I must say that apple picking goes so much quicker than blueberry picking! Seriously, though, they pick like 5 apples and their baskets are full– Blueberries takes FOREVER!
This year we headed to Giffens Country Market in Glen Huron with our friends and neighbours. This was the same place we went last year. The area of Glen Huron is just spectacular. Although we went the same weekend this year as last year the colours weren’t as bright this year but still it was good to spend the afternoon together! On the way home we stopped at a small park just north of Mansfield and the kids took the time to explore, get wet and throw rocks into the river. A great time had by all!
