Fall is Here πŸŽπŸ‚πŸƒπŸ

Yesterday turned into an Adventerous Day. Which the chilly weather just made it even better πŸ™‚ 
🍎 Early in the morning, we Apple Picked. I couldn’t believe how red and juicy they were. (& you can’t pick  apples with out trying a few first)

Now, all of the apple possibilities opened up- Apple Crisp, Apple Pie, Apple Cobbler, Oh MY! & I couldn’t wait to get into the kitchen.

But first, we had to go fishing before the rain came through. 

  
Brad (my FiancΓ©) found a four leaf clover before our mini trip, so we tied it to the front of the canoe for good luck. 

  
As soon as his bomber hit the water, he had a fish on. 

  
I think we found our new good luck charm. 

  
I cannot get enough of Fall Fashion. I love the leggings with tall boots, the dark autumn colors and the snug warmth from big sweaters. 

One of my favorite fall pieces are my denim jeans πŸ™‚ From boot cut to skinny to flare, I love them all! Here, I paired my boot cut jeans with my brown boat shoes, a colorful flannel with a puffy green vest. There was a chilly wind, but the vest held up and made it comfortable. I love to play with scarves, they add that little accessory that you need. 

Then we had to leave early due to the rain which was fine,  bc I was thinking about Apple Crisp the whole time 🍎🍎🍎

This year they added a sweet potato. Yummy. 

  There are agriculture buildings with colored chickens and award winning cows. A zoo with exotic animals like giraffes and zebras. We visited a booth that had flavored goat cheese. 

Herb flavored goat cheese on a cracker.

  
Fun and excitement throughout the midway. There are a variety of rides and games to play. A wristband for unlimited rides are $25. 

  
The One Man Band is a sight to see. With his instruments strapped to him from head to his toes, he sings rock music for all of the ages. He is fun and energetic.
