It's the Great Pumpkin

Has anyone else every watched Charlie Brown's The Great Pumpkin? Charlie Brown is a show that was on our TV every holiday as a kid.  My mom loves him, so I think I saw every holiday episode about a thousand times!  She still watches the episodes on her own now that all of us kids are all grown up, that's the child in her. 

Saturday afternoon the boyfriend and I headed out to the apple orchards!  Don't be confused by the pumpkins that follow, it really was an apple orchard haha! We like to head about 15 miles northeast of town and go to those orchards because there are four on one strip of road out there. So instead of going bar hopping this weekend, we went orchard hopping :)

Looking for the perfect pumpkin

Found it!

And he found his!

Proof we were at an apple orchard 

The orchards had lots of goodies, so of course we proceeded to purchase almost all of them...

Our two pumpkins, yet to be carved

Silly Seeds- Watermelon flavored sunflower seeds
(In case you're wondering they are okay, they taste like nerds + nuts)

Apple cider and Merry Berry wine

Caramel apple pie....umm almost gone already!

What did you do this weekend?  What is your favorite fall activity?  Anyone have any good Halloween costume ideas?

Sunday was a day of straight up family and football.

Go Pack Go!
