Apple Pickin'

 
 We went up to Ellijay in the North Georgia Mountains
yesterday for some apple picking, but due to our summer
drought, the apples came and went early this year.
 
Still there was lots to do, including a hay-ride...
 
 
And, an apple cannon...
 
 
Plus, a petting zoo...
 
 
We did get to bring home some apples, too...
 
 
 And, some Apple Cider Doughnuts...
(He was sad when his was gone!)
 
 
All smiles around here...
 
 
 
Thank you, Reece Orchards!

It looks like everybody had a good time at least until the donuts ran out. I don't think I've ever had an apple cider donut and I need to correct that situation.

Love the pic of the turkey and the last photo is is wonderful.

What a fun day. Love the bokeh in that first shot.

Pumpkin launchers I have seen, but never an apple canon! Awesome!!! We had an awful drought around here too that stole our traditional fall colors. Maybe next year :)

Fun! I'd love to do this with my kiddos. We picked pumpkins just recently and they loved it.

Those stinking cute goats. We had two female goats last summer and had to give them back to the owner because they were a freckin' nightmare. No guff.

An apple canon?! That is awesome! And, the sad face...he needs another doughnut!

great shots! i love your awesome fall bokeh in the first couple of shots!

Many times we just land upon something we didn't even know we had. That lake is also a city reservoir, like the first one we found but this one allows bait fishing. The other one only allows fly fishing. We found the better of the two.

I love your older son's teeth. He is so confident and cute.

So fun...we drove past on our way to the mountains and I so wanted to stop. Looks like a fun outing!
