Weekend Fun: Apples and Pumpkins

We had a really rough past week as a family, including long work days and some short sleep nights. It was one of those weeks that I look back and swear the weekend before had been months ago.

It didn't help matters that I worked all last weekend, something that is unusual for my schedule and made my work week feel even longer. 

We were in dire need of a break, to say the least. 

So what does that mean? Well, apple and pumpkin picking of course! 

(Ok, so maybe that's not the first thing that came to mind, because I'm lying if I didn't say some sun and a white sandy beach would've been choice A. But I'm in Ohio. Pumpkins and apples it is!) 

There's a few farms in our area to choose from, so after nap time we loaded into the truck and took off. When we saw the line for the first farm that was literally at least 75 people just waiting to get in, we quickly turned around and went to another. 

A not quite 2 year old and insanely long lines? Yeah, that doesn't mix well. 

I'm so glad we ended up at the other farm because there was so much for Juliet to do! They have a little corn version of a sandbox that the smaller kids could play in. She wasn't too sure at first, but once I showed her what it was, we couldn't barely get her out! 

Then Jay took her down the world's largest tube slide. Ok, not really, but it was fast! And she loved it. 

We also got to go see some farm animals and take a tractor ride, which may have just been her favorite thing we did. Juliet kept asking to get back on the tractor. 

She wasn't too interested in picking out a pumpkin, but did finally settle on a little one to take home and set on our front porch.

My favorite part was the apple picking! Juliet had so much fun and we got a good amount of apples! I'm excited to make some apple sweets for us this week! 

Did you have a fun weekend? Or have any good apple recipes for me?
