Apple and Pumpkin picking

This morning we took the kids apple and pumpkin picking at this really neat farm in LaPorte. Garwood Farms is so cool. They have a u-pick section were you can get apples, pumpkins, raspberries, eggplant, peppers, and tomatoes. And then they have an indoor market with tons of fresh produce, amish noodles, jams, gelatto, fresh meat, and fresh baked goods. I can't wait to go back! We told L and D that we were going and that was all they could talk about the whole way there! It only took about 30 min to get there, and now that we know where it is we will totally be going there more often. They had tractors, and horse drawn wagons that take you into the fields. L was so excited that he ran the whole way to the pumpkin patch and didn't slow down. There was one point where he took off into the orchard and we couldn't find him. That was super scary! He was just too happy. We put D in the umbrella stroller to make it easier, and L, well all we had to do was give him an apple and he stayed put. The kids had a blast, and I think Adam and I did too. I have wanted to go apple picking for a super long time! Now we have 2 medium size pumpkins, and 1 bushel full of apples. Looks like I'll be making apple butter, maybe a pie, and tons of applesauce! Hurray! I love fall!!!

I am jealous. That looks like so much fun! Our "pumpkin patch" is on the corner next to a gas station on the main drag in town.

These are so sweet.
Reminds me of when my kids were younger.
Very happy days.
