Happy FALL!!!! So excited for the next couple of months + to welcome some of our favorite traditions of the year, just hoping the weather gets the memo soon! Last weekend we kicked off all the fun by taking our big girls apple picking at the cutest little spot in Charlottesville, this is about a three hour drive for us but is totally worth it, we just love this sweet orchard SO MUCH! The view is the absolute best, they have tooooons of spots for picking + the best treats, including apple cider donuts + a brewery! Overall just the perfect place to spend a fall afternoon, the temps may not have felt like fall at all, but we made the most out of it and already cannot wait to go back next year.
We decided not to bring Remerie this time, she is not in a phase where she would enjoy a three hour car ride (which means neither would we!) + we thought it would be fun to be able to focus on just the big girls for a day. Also, we timed the trip with a JOJO CONCERT, a complete surprise for both Waverly + Avalon!!!! After we picked apples we told them that Jojo was in Charlottesville and that they were getting to see her in just an hour, this was such a fun surprise for them and definitely the highlight of our trip. My husband stayed back at the hotel 😉 and I took them, their little eyes were lit up the entire time and they danced the night away, way past their bedtimes and then we got ice cream afterwards.
When we left Waverly cried because I couldn’t get Jojo’s mom’s phone number for a playdate, while Avalon was also crying because she couldn’t hug her — you win some, you lose some, but I will seriously remember their first concert and our little weekend getaway forever + ever. I hope they will, too.
