Apple - Not the Computer

This was a fun outing on a very warm fall day with temperatures in the high 80s. More of the same weather is expected for Monday on yet another adventure.

What fun! I'd love some hot apple crisp right now with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side. Those apples look so good! :D

Looks fun! Wayne County in NY is a big apple producer and we stopped at a couple of places and got to taste some of their apples. We bought some Autumn Crisp apples for snack time while we're traveling. Very good!

Hi Everyone, this was definitely a fun family event as we saw lots of children who brought their parents along.

We "sampled" a couple of apples while walking through part of the orchards.

Possum, we did get some ideas such as having an admission table where you bought tickets that could be redeemed for both food and events.
