Besides missing Utah Football terribly (as we can't go to games and we don't have TV, which I actually love)I am truly enjoying fall back east. The leaves are starting to change and the colors become more vivid everyday (pictures to come). There has been plenty to do to stay busy and we had a really good time apple picking at Carter Hill. There were piles of fresh produce that were beautiful to look at and we picked a lot of apples and peaches right off the tree.
She loved picking apples and taking bites out of them too. I don't think she could've had a much bigger bite than this!
There was a fun play area for the kids with little 'roads' and play houses. Here are some of the other moms, Janalee Fish, Katie Bell, and Kara Dortch, helping the kids drive their cars.
Katie climbing the peach tree to pick the delicious and very plump peaches.
The kids loved running around the orchard. Here is Emilie Gardner with a bunch of the kids: Ayden, Caroline (back to the camera) Tyler, Kallyn, Eden, Allison, and Avi is in her mom's arms.
We went to the Hopkinton Fair a couple of weeks ago. The kids loved the animals and Caroline practically climbed into the pens with the pigs. We tried fried pickles, which were incredibly greasy, but to my surprise, very good when dipped in ranch.
On our way to the fair we passed by one of my favorite things...a covered bridge. I don't know what draws me to them, but I just love the old, quaint, charming feeling I get when I see them. Railroad Bridge, disputably the oldest covered bridge in the United States, was built in 1850 for the Concord and Claremont Railroad, connecting lonely Contoocook with the larger New Hampshire towns such as Concord. This is the first one I've seen since living in New Hampshire, and I hope to see many, many more! I especially can't wait until Christmas to hopefully go to some that are red with a wreath over the entrance.
