apples and snow?!

This post is a bit picture intensive(just letting you know).
This weekend we made a little trip to our favorite apple orchard...instead of seeing 'frost on the pumpkin' we experienced snow on the apples! Just as we were getting ready to leave our house, I look out the window and see it snowing! And I mean serious snow...heavy and for about 30 minutes...snow on Oct 10th? Something is SERIOUSLY wrong about that one. It didn't stick but the temp was like 34 degrees at one point.

We made the best of it and put on our Winter jackets and off we went. Will loved picking and eating his first apple fresh off the tree...you can see he was delighted with the entire experience.
Grace took it all in stride and kept warm...


We picked several varieties of apples, walked around(well Will got pushed in his stroller) and Grace ate a carmel apple which aided in another tooth falling out. We'll probably be having temps in the 80's next weekend...just that way it is in Wisconsin sometimes. :)


I'll be baking that apple cake this afternoon...

...Looks like some great fun and memories were made! But boy o boy- you are so right- snow so early is just not right! All the photos are wonderful, as usual- but I LOVE that last one! :)
Have a great(hopefully warmer) start to your week!

We have had snow in Oct. before too and it just doesn't seem right at all. It's like seeing Christmas decorations in the stores before Halloween.
I made an apple cake yesterday too. I love this time of year!

Gorgeous pictures, it doesn't get more "fall" than that!!! LOL @ your crazy weather, I can totally relate (though it would probably be a sign of the end times if we got snow here in October, LOL!)

Have a great week!!

Can't believe it snowed!! We used to live in Ithaca, NY and it would snow on occasion in October. Believe it or not I miss that.... I love winter.

Enjoy your apple cake!!
