apple picking!

Today I went apple picking with my friends Kristin and Pam! We drove to Hillcrest Orchards in Ellijay, GA which was about an hour and a half north. It was the perfect way to spend the first day of our three-day weekend. The weather was perfect... with a nice cool autumn breeze in the air, it smelled like fall!

 We were told that there weren't too many apples left on the trees, but we found a few!
There were lots of yucky ones on the ground...
 But still some hanging in the trees!

 Pretty Pam and her pretty apple. :)

This orchard had other activities, one of which was cow milking! None of us had ever milked a cow before, so we did it just so we could say we had done it. Poor cow...

 And we were given stickers that said, "I milked Buttercup at Hillcrest Orchards."

After waiting in a long line for the bathroom so that we could wash our hands, we filled up the rest of our bags with apples that had already been picked. 

Then we munched on apple fritters, apple pie, and homemade ice cream, and were off! It was such a fun and festive day! 


  1. How fun! Can't wait to hear what you made with your apples- I'm sure it will be delicious!
