Autumn Has Arrived

What a beautiful day we are having. Since tomorrow is the first day of Fall, Jer and I went to Baughers Farm, its located in Westminster Md. We bought some apples, apple dumplings, apple butter, do you get the theme going on here??? Its a fun place to go especially if you have kids. You can take a hay ride out to the orchards to pick your own apples, they have a petting zoo and playground and the homemade ice cream is soooo delicious. On the way home we stopped at a house not to far from ours to buy pumpkins. This family owns a farm and every year they sell pumpkins in front of their house, its the best deal in town. Pumpkins are priced from a $1 to $4, they also sell, gourds, corn stalks and hay bales. Next we stopped and bought a Mum, came home and decorated the outside of our house. I just love this time of year, its kind of bittersweet because it marks the end of summer. The weather is so nice, warm days and cool nights. Guess we better enjoy it while we can, Old man winter is just around the corner!

Looks like you had a wonderful day! I have never been there, but the girls get to go every year with Grandad and buy many pumpkins!
