Apple Picking

Holy crap! I blogged! That’s right ya’ll – I’m back on the train after falling off for most of this month.  I promise, it’s for good reasons! Stay tuned J

Back in October, we took the girls apple picking.  We started the “tradition” last year by going to Graves Mountain.  We really enjoyed it, so we wanted to make sure we went again this year.  In Virginia, you either go to Graves Mountain or Carter Mountain to do your apple picking.  Since we experienced Graves last year, and Carter Mountain is a bit closer, we decided on Carter Mountain.  My friend Jen and her family joined us, as well as my parents.  Our day was great – the kids had fun picking apples and afterwards, we went into downtown Charlottesville to have some lunch.

 In comparison, I liked Carter Mountain because there was a ton of apple picking options and the views were a lot prettier than Graves.  BUT, I think I’ll want to head back to Graves next year.  Their festival has a lot more action and fun activities for the kids to enjoy other than just apple picking.  Either way, we had a great day spending time with family and some friends!
