fall is here!

I am so excited... fall, the actual season, not just where it says "Fall Begins" on the calendar, is finally here! The weather is cooling, you can feel it in the air and in the breeze, it is so beautiful! I grew up in Florida, only venturing out of state for a few vacations here and there, so the idea of actually watching the seasons change is very exciting to me. The leaves are beginning, every so slightly to change colors and in a month they will be brilliant yellows, reds and orange. I can't wait....We spent the day traveling to Hendersonville, NC to take the children apple picking. None of us have ever done this before, so those of you that may be old hands at this, please humor me! We had no idea what we were doing but the kids loved every minute of it! We drove two and a half hours to get there and they had two bushels picked in all of about 45 minutes. I have no idea of what we are going to do with all these apples, so if anyone has any good apple recipes, please send them my way! Here are a few pictures of the apple pickin' in Hendersonville...
