Linvilla Orchards in September

Ah, September, the month of sometimes feeling like summer but it being 100% socially acceptable to do fall things!

Two years ago, Devin and I mistakenly tried to go "apple-picking" (YES, quotation marks are necessary). Instead of delightfully reaching for apples in the warm glow of fall sunshine, we pushed baby Aiden in a stroller (we were dumb) on the bumpy orchard hills, sweating PROFUSELY, and dodging angry hornets the entire time. Not exactly what we had had in mind.

This year, we were determined to be smarter about fall outings. We checked the weather and saw that it would be in the 80s, so even though it may have been more festive to wear our flannel and sweatshirts, we dressed for summer. And we 100% ditched picking apples in between escaping bees!

On Saturday, we headed for Linvilla Orchards and their cider donuts, amazing wooden playground, and farmer's market. There were still bees (Devin's worst nightmare), but they were few and far between! We also discovered their new beer garden, which had yard games and was an adorable set-up for hanging out and enjoying those cider donuts.

Last year we also went to Linvilla on a Friday evening (I was like 38 weeks pregnant!), and it was fun to buy hayride tickets + sip hot cider around their bonfires. That was a little more expensive, but still totally recommendable!

On our list for this fall is heading back to Tabora Farms and Maple Acres farm!

 What fun fall adventures are you planning? Have you done any apple-picking (without bees perhaps)?
