Apples Out, Pumpkins In

I was pretty psyched all last week knowing that we were going apple picking Saturday.  It was our first time with Gwen.  I had my new camera to snap away with.  And, the apples, duh!

We loaded up the car, brought some lunch for a picnic, prayed for the weather to stay nice, and headed on our way.

As we unloaded the caravan car and filed into the barn to buy some bags to fill with delish apples we soon found out...

That wasn't going to happen :(

Turns out the farm's apple season was over {we think that they just had a bad year}... so, no apples.  Boo Hoo.  BUT, they did have pumpkins!

So we just altered our agenda a little bit, and picked some pumpkins with my punkin.

Went on a hayride...

Had a picnic...

Please don't mind my shades... although they are cute, they aren't mine and don't fit my face... I had to borrow them bc Miss Gwen broke mine :(
And went through a corn maze with Gwen's Aunt Sherri & Uncle Keith....
Gwen got a little tired of walking
Walking was hard bc of all the vines
 The maze took a little longer than expected.   I think at one point we were worried that we weren't going to make it out, lol.  So did Gwen...

But, we made it out alive!

And it turned out to be an amazing day!!!

Next year I think we will try to apple pick just a little bit earlier.

Isn't she just beautiful!?!?
