Going Apple Picking in the fall is a very New England thing to do. This year we went with Joe to an Orchard in Monson. It was so cold that we didn't take any pictures of us picking apples.
But, here is one of Joe drinking apple cider. It was yummy. We also had some apple cider doughnuts. Delicious.
Here are our adorable boys by the apple tree that measures how tall you are. Man, we love these little guys.

A family that we know through home schooling has an Urban Farm. They raise vegetables, goats, and chickens. They support themselves through the farm. Holden has a class there once a week where they learn about farming. He really enjoys it and says he is going to be a farmer when he grows up. One afternoon they opened up the farm to the families to come and have a tour. Here are the pictures of our tour.
