Apples, Pumpkins, etc....

















Yesterday (Sat 10/19), we went out for the day! It was a 50/60 degree day (just like Jim likes it) and there was hardly a cloud in the sky. First, we went to Windy Brow to get some cider, an apple crumb pie, some cider donuts and to pick our apples. We took the tractor ride out to the orchard and found some great apples (empire - my fave, winesap - Jim's fave, and some red delicious for the boys). Andrew found a "Hidden Mickey" in the apples, so I had to take it's picture, of course. We even saw a few goats while we were there (they *really* wanted our cider donuts, but there's no way I'm sharing one of those with a goat! LOL)



Next, we headed over to Lentini's in Newton, NJ to get pumpkins. We got 4 pumpkins, saw some pumpkin catapulting & sling shotting, saw a pig race and the boys went through the gigantic corn maze.



Afterwards, we headed off to Hackettstown, NJ to eat at an old favorite restaurant, Pietros. Oh wow is the food fantastic there and we have tons of leftovers to eat today. I can't wait to dig into the Tortellini Alfredo. Yum!



All in all, it was a wonderful Saturday and we all had a great time. We had "movie night" later in the evening and watched "Delta Farce" together (not exactly a very good movie, but there were a few funnies).
