I have been wanting to take our crew apple picking for as long as I can remember, and last weekend, all my dreams came true when we went on a family day trip to the most beautiful apple orchard in Charlottesville. I knew the girls would love this, we go strawberry and peach picking each year, and it’s always one of our favorite traditions. Adding apples this time around was just the best, all four of us love apples (including Avalon, which says a lot since she usually doesn’t like any foods aren’t ice cream or lollipops).
The drive was a little over three hours, which honestly wasn’t bad at all, we drove up early Saturday morning and were back in time for dinner (and Alabama football!) by late that afternoon. The orchard was just incredible, every corner we turned had another gorgeous view and there was just so much to do. After picking for apples, we got a few drinks and let the girls run around barefeet and play with tons of kids activities they had out, which was just the kind of relaxing we needed after a couple of chaotic weeks of back to school. Waverly said “this is my favorite day ever”, and Avalon hasn’t stopped talking about the apple donuts and apple smoothies. It really was the perfect way to kick off all the fall fun!
If you have an apple orchard near you, we definitely recommend it!!! It would even be a really fun day date or place for a birthday party or shower (there were tons there that day & it was the cutest!). Also, Waverly’s dress can be found here, I love it so much to wear all fall long! Happy Thursday, friends! XO
I was just looking at that dress for Ellie the other day. It's so cute and she even liked it…might have to pick it up now!
I am completely impressed that you drove 3 hours (one way!) for apple picking. But hey, I love this tradition too, so I would probably do it if I needed to!
