It is officially apple picking season!!! I have been so excited to go and looked up a bunch of farms in NY and we ended up going to Masker Orchards! A lot of the farms don’t let you bring wagons or picnic in the orchards and we really wanted to have a picnic and make a day out of it so we chose this farm. On yelp it was saying that it gets insane busy so we went on a weekday and got there right when it opened and we were the only ones there for the few hours we were there, it was perfect. The apples are SO so yummy, we picked more than we can handle and have been busy making apple sauce and other yummy apple things. Being there made us realize how bad we want to have land one day! Their farm was so gorgeous and ONE DAY in the far future I hope we have something like it. Atticus didn’t nap on the way there like we had planned so he was pretty tired but still had so much fun riding in the wagon and throwing every rock he could get his hands on. He also was munching on the apples the whole time …. and he is a PICKY eater so this made me very happy. We snagged some homemade apple cider donuts on our way out from their shop and waited til we got home to eat them so we could warm them up and holy cow…….. they were so good!!!!! I want to go back just for those dang donuts!

I wasn’t feeling great over the weekend but I still had a bunch of work stuff to do so David was so sweet and surprised me with a spa day today 🙂 I am so excited .. so I am off to the spa! I hope you all have a great day!!!
