Lawrence Farms

We headed up to Newburgh this past weekend for our annual apple picking adventure. It was Jon's first weekend off in over 3 weeks and it actually felt really weird for him to be around on a Saturday... almost like a little vacation! Anyway, it was so great to get out of the city and drive up the beautiful Palisades Parkway. The leaves were amazing! We stopped at gma and gpa S's house for some cinnamon rolls and then headed to the apple farm with them. It was a beautiful day -- significantly chillier than last year when it was like 75 degrees -- but who doesn't love a crisp, autumn day in the Northeast?!?

Noah loved seeing some of the animals they had, especially the goats for some reason, and we managed to pick a few apples even though there was some climbing involved by Uncle C. One of the reasons we love this orchard is because of the cute little children's village that it has. There is a little school house, a church, a post office, a jail, and even an ice cream parlor. It was a huge hit this year and I'll be honest, we spent most of our time there! Then we headed over to the pumpkin patch to pick a pumpkin and snap some family pics.

It was a great day... we even caught Miggy and fam leaving as we were pulling in... :)
