apple picking

Growing up there was this little farm we used to go to on field trips in school. We would load up the school bus, drive 10 minutes to the edge of town and spend the day on the wide open fields of Carrigan Farms. We would be given a small bag, and ride down to the apple orchard on a hayride to pick our bag of apples. It is one of my most favorite memories of grade school. A few weeks ago we were driving to spend the day at my parents house and as we drove by the farm I noticed the rows of apple trees. After doing a little research, I decided I would plan a day and take Landon to go pick apples. First off, my child loves the outdoors, and second, he loves a place where there are no boundaries. We live in a neighborhood where I feel like I am constantly telling Landon “Don’t go near the road! or Stay near mommy!” I looked forward to going somewhere where those words didn’t have to come out of my mouth and Landon could run and explore without the fear of cars nearby or concrete I couldn’t think of a better way to spend a gorgeous fall afternoon in the heart of North Carolina.

  1. I am so jealous! we don't have apple orchards here! Perhaps we will have to take a vacation up north somewhere where we can do this next fall! LOL

    Looks like Landon had a blast!

  2. We have an apple orchard near here and I am DYING to go with Sydney this year! I am hoping we can capture some really cute photos of everyone when we do go!
