I really think one of the best things about having kids is establishing traditions with them. I love that when they think of fall, along with their birthdays (of course!) and Halloween, they also look forward to pumpkin and apple picking. It's one of my favorite day trips of the year by far, and the colors of fall never fail to disappoint (if you're still looking for an orchard or pumpkin patch to visit, check out my roundup on The Savvy Source).
This year, we headed out to Stuart's Fruit Farm in Granite Springs, NY. About an hour north of NYC, the location is perfect for a day trip out of the city, and the apple and pumpkin selection is still plentiful. The little gals had even more fun this year than last, and we came home with a massive pumpkin and a big bag of apples to show for it (not to mention the best apple cider donuts of my life).
Happy fall, friends!
|The Phoebe top from Alexander & Sophia - love the classic stripe w/ contrasting color on the sleeve!|
Material is soft & a bit thicker than your average long-sleeved t-shirt, so perfect for fall weather.
|My sweatshirt is from the new Liz Claiborne for JCPenney's line. Unfortunately, I can no longer find it online, but I do love this alternative.|
|Small aside: Loving Liz Claiborne for JCPenney's new cross-body bag... |
the perfect purse for being hands-free with kids!
