Apple Farm.





I think this makes us true Minnesotans, right? Picking our own apples? The quintessential fall outing.

Unfortunately for me, it was a bright, sunny, day, so the pics are only so-so.

Fortunately, it was 80 degrees, which is probably unusual for this time of year, but I'm trying to store vitamin D for winter, so it was nice.

Unfortunately, 80 degree weather does not make you want to drink apple cider. I may be making my own in the coming months to make up for this lost opportunity.

I would say Alla thoroughly enjoyed the apple farm experience, picking the apples (though she wasn't necessarily as discriminate as I wished her to be, and some of her picks didn't make it home...shhhh), riding the pony, watching the goats (not so interested in petting).
Such a fun morning that she didn't even make it the half-mile back to the highway before crashing.
