(See part one of my weekend recap here.)
After our lunch in Saluda on Sunday, Michael and I ventured to Stepp’s Orchard in Hendersonville, North Carolina to pick some apples.
We’ve gone there every September for the past three years now, and it has become one of my favorite traditions.
It turned out that we got there pretty much right as they opened, so we really had the run of the orchard.
Unfortunately, honey crisps are already out of season, but we did manage to stock up on Rome apples.
The first year that we went to the orchard, I befriended some cows, and I was really excited to visit them again yesterday (though I did so from a distance because they seemed more interested grazing).
My feelings weren’t too hurt though because I made a new friend.
And then Michael made me pose for this picture…
Well, I guess that it was technically the baby who posed because that black dot is my bump sticking through the cut-out.
The orchard is so beautiful, and I’m so happy that we went there again.
I actually came home with much more than a bag of apples.
I left behind the sadness that Michael and I won’t have as much time alone together anymore and returned with the excitement of bringing our sweet baby boy with us next year.
Not a bad weekend.
How did you spend your weekend? Have you ever gone apple picking?
I’ll be back with a tomorrow with a Trader Joe’s haul and a fall giveaway!
Great Post – love the bump sticking out of the cut out – ha! I actually got to experience the Savor the Central Coast Food and Wine event hosted by Sunset & Vons on Saturday – had a BLAST! I love apple and pumpkin picking:) Happy Monday!
