beginings of fall fun!

I am a sucker for fall. I love the crispness of the air, fall colors, sweaters and jackets, hot coffee and cider, soups, and fuzzy socks. I also so enjoy fall activities! Pumpkin patches, carnivals, fairs and festivals... all fun! This weekend we checked one annual October tradition off our list. We took advantage of a chilly Sunday afternoon and made a trip to Ellijay, GA. Like any good autumn road trip, it started off with lattes and macchiatos from Starbucks. Anna Kate had fun riding in Granna's car and finding cows and horses on the way. When we got to our favorite orchard, we strolled though the rows of trees. Anna Kate thought it was funny that so many apples "fall down" on the grass.
