apple festival

yesterday we visited the apple festival in amish country with some friends of ours, james & shelly. it was awesome! pennsylvania is so beautiful! i loved driving through the country. the leaves are barely starting to change color and the temperature was mostly in the 60's. oh-so-perfect. not a lot of things make me happier than this time of year. it was a great kick-off to a wonderful fall season.

driving through the country of this beautiful state!

making apple butter over a fire.

hailey wanted me to take a picture of her on SIX rocking horses.
i love how specific she is.
she's my little buddy.

i've always had a weird obsession over cash registers.
i just had to snap a shot of this thing. i love it!

here they are, making apple cider. it was SO good.
i sure could go for some right now.
there were tons of these adorable cars in the parking lot.
love them.

apparently you aren't supposed to take their picture.
but who can resist, really?

don't you just LoVe this face?

thanks shelly & james for the invitation.
this is definitely going to be a fall tradition of ours.

How fun for you guys! I've been to Amish Country in Pennsylvania and it is so cool to see them there. I took pictures of them too, so don't worry :)

Laurel said...

Sounds like fun! I want to go to Amish country for sure some time. Thanks again for last night, it was so much fun!

PA is beautiful! So glad that you are enjoying it. The Amish make some of the best apple cider I have ever tasted! And the Amish in PA are so commercialized that they are use to having people take pictures of them!

Amanda said...
