At the Orchard

Michael grew up in Binghamton, New York, so one of his fondest childhood memories was going apple picking every year. I don't recall ever going apple picking in Minnesota, but after we were married we lived in Connecticut for a year, and I got the chance to go then. When Sophia was 13 months old we attended a wedding in Binghamton, and we made a point of taking her while there. She loved it! I couldn't resist sharing a few pictures from that trip. She was such a cutie!

We hadn't been apple picking again since that trip, so we decided to wrap a trip upstate into a NYC trip with both Sophia and Carter. This time around we went to Tantillo's Farm in Gardiner, NY. It was absolutely perfect! There was a cute little pumpkin maze in the front that Sophia and Carter played in while we waited for the tractor to take us back to the orchard. They both had so much fun, and the apples were definitely worth it! I think I finally know what my mother-in-law is talking about when she says the apples in Texas don't hold a candle to the ones in New York! After we finished picking apples, we went back to the farm stand and bought some fresh apple cider donuts - yum!

It was warmer than I'd expected, so by the end of the day I'd lost the sweater and scarf. The tee is cute on it's own - just tuck the front into your jeans and you're good to go!


After we left the orchard, we went to Angry Orchard in Walden, NY. We sampled the hard cider and then went outside and played cornhole. If you're in the area I'd definitely recommend visiting!
