Apple Overload

Here in the foothills of Sacramento, there is a place called Apple Hill. It's exactly what it sounds like....a bunch of apple orchards/farms all in one place! During the Fall season the place can get packed with weekend tourists and families, so we opted for a weekday outing with the kids and some friends! I remember going here as a kid and so naturally, I wanted my kids to experience it.

We enjoyed spotting fish in the pond, playing with the ducks, eating apple fritters, apple donuts, and caramallows (homemade caramel with a marshmallow in the middle), picking our own apples, swinging from the tire swing, and playing with friends!

The apple picking was the group highlight. The kids loved it so much and the moms didn't really have the heart to stop them! Which is why we all came home with well over 10 pounds of apples each. We made applesauce and apple crisp with ours!
