The air up here

is apple scented.  Every year we make the hour drive to Apple Country in Oak Glen, CA.  Its always packed but that just adds to the experience.  Every year we attempt to do the U-Pick and we never get there in time.  This year we went later in the day (instead of rushing up there) and were lucky enough to get into the U-Pick area.  I don't know if less people did it this year or if they allowed more people in but there was no one there where we drove up.  They were all at the actual farms down the road.

 N found acorns - he got so excited because he knows these are 'fall' items and we just don't have anything like that around the house.
 On weekends, they have a kids area with train rides and stuff like this big slide.
 U-Pick Pumpkins.....
 Found a bee in a flower.

 U-Pick Apple Orchards.  They left hay bales and apple crates out.  There was a mini portrait session going on in almost every row.

 He decided to ham it up.
 With dad.
 Apple tasting.
 Finally getting to pick our own.
 He picked only the best Golden Delicious just for Grandma - her favorite.

 A view down the valley.
 He's like a little old lady with her pocket book.

 Red Delicious - MY favorite

 After picking we headed down to one of the farms to have cider and donuts.  YUM!
