Wow... these past two month have been crazy busy around our house. I love this time of year and I would really like for everything to slow down just a bit so that I could take some time to enjoy it a little more. I know we all wish that at times. Well, last weekend we took a timeout day. We went with my parents to Gold Rush in Dahlonega, GA. We normally go on Saturday but this year we went early on Sunday. I know we were bad a skipped church but Caleb was called into work on Saturday and we had to postpone for one day. We got there around 9:30 am on Sunday and I was glad because we got there before most of the crowd. By the 11am it was packed. They had some really cute stuff.
Anyhow, we had a great time just walking around and being outside on that beautiful day! After we left Dahlonega we rode toward Ellijay which is know for their apple orchards. On the way there we stopped by Burt's Pumpkin Farm. If you live around here you know Burt's is famous! :) It was packed too but fun to walk through and take some pictures. They have all different types of pumpkins all shapes and sizes.
In Ellijay we stopped at Hillcrest Orchard and the most wonderful Apple Fritter with Apple Ice cream on top!!! It was DELICIOUS!!! I was actually just thinking of it again this afternoon and wondering just how bad it would be to drive all that way just one more time this week! Haha!
Sorry we had to have a bite before I remembered that we had not got a picture. :)
After that we drove back across the mountain you know over the river and through the woods. :) The trees were beautiful this weekend! Being out on a day like that just reminds me of all we have to be thankful for. God has definitely painted the most beautiful picture for us to enjoy!
Well this weekend we are not sure what we will do but definitely something fall related as I am determined to have at least a half a day with no school work for either of us! We need that time to relax. Hope you are all enjoying this fall weather!
What have you been up to? Any fall festivals or new creations?
