A Perfect Fall Day

We went to a wine-tasting, cook-out (steak, lobster bisque, cheesy potatoes, kabobs), hay ride and apple picking party this weekend with a big group of friends and family. Hosted by our friends Anthony and Laurie, who live on 10 acres of land and woods, it was just the perfect Fall day. Here are some of the highlights!

Starting off the afternoon at the wine tasting (Laurie (the host), me, Sue, Liz (my twin sister), Alison, and Megan.

Me and Lily. Jake, Elle, Anthony at the hay maze.

Lily on the hay ride, heading to the orchard.

Me and Steve.

Lily didn't quite "get" that she was supposed to fill her basket with apples, not eat them.

Steve and Elle picking apples. And hamming it up.

Me and Elle.
The Warshawsky clan.

Elle the action hero. Leaping through the air.

Liz (my twin sister) and Lily. One is laughing. One is crying. It was a long day.

The hayride home. Elle and Steve.

The whole group.

Elle and Aunt Lizzie. Quiet at last.

What a great post, Laurie! I'm hoping to get in a little apple picking soon as well.

Thanks for visiting my neck of the woods! The party went well, and while it was in Ohio (I grew up in Mansfield), I'm now living in Michigan. But I visit often!

so uplifting to see all those smiling happy faces… tI love the first pic where you have a little pink arm squeezing your knee!

Valerie said...

Love the pictures ! Mostly the laughing/crying one ahahah. Looks like it was a terrific day.

Lolley said...

Than you! Enjoy the knee-hugs while you can… my 13-year-old now tends to slide her arm around my neck as she tells me how much she loves me and asks me how much cash there is in my wallet, all in the same breath!
