The Perfect Fall Day

The other day Lyla, Evie and I met up with some girlfriends at a local orchard.  We met these friends a couple years ago through Instagram, which was completely random, and ended up really hitting it off.  They have three girls, so it's fun to get our little ones together.  Hazel and L are just about the same age and I don't think anyone's ever been as excited to pick apples as they were.  Clover, their youngest, is just recently in remission from liver cancer and was all smiles and babbles.  It's amazing how sometimes the smallest ones can be the most inspiring.

The orchard was beautiful and had so many fun activities for the girls.  They picked about 15 pounds of apples, went on a hay ride, climbed a hay mountain, saw farm animals and drank apple cider.   We even had a "fun" little game of hide and seek in a corn maze, which included just the slightest feeling of sheer panic that we'd never be able to find the little hoodlums again.

It was my favorite kind of Fall day with the most perfectly crisp air.  I can't help but look forward to the colorful leaves crunching on the ground, cooler temps, and I won't even mind it getting dark earlier, provided that means earlier bedtimes too.  :)
