Apple Picking

Did you even do "fall" correctly if you didn't go apple picking? I am still finding my go-to orchard here in NY, but had a great afternoon at Outhouse Orchards picking a huge bag of apples. I was shocked at how many apples were still hanging on the trees in mid-October, must have been a good harvest thanks to our soggy summer.
There is nothing better than fresh-picked apples. They really have a leg up on the grocery store apples and they are somehow more fun to eat! This year, I have just been munching on them, but may have to sauce a few because nothing beats locally picked homemade apple sauce.

The Edge

100 floors above Hudson Yards is The Edge NYC. The highest observation deck in the Western Hemisphere! I finally made my way up to the top to take in the stunning area views before real fall and winter weather set in. The elevator takes you 96 floors in just under a minute and you are instantly struck with the views the moment the doors open on floor 100.
 I lucked out with a beyond beautiful blue sky day and the views were insane! You could see all the NY bridges, planes landing at all 3 major airports, Central Park, and more. I felt really safe up there with super high glass walls but my stomach was still dropping each time I got close to the edge. There is one area with a glass floor to stand or sit on. I was good just watching other crazy people do that! This was a fun afternoon and a fun local thing to check off my list.

Pumpkin Patch

Fall can't really get underway until I get some pumpkin patch time in. I checked out the array of gourds at Outhouse Orchards and Westchester Greenhouse and Farm this year and they had some great offerings this year between the two of them!
Nothing beats a crisp, grey fall day and fields of orange, lumpy gourds. The orchard was hopping (last year I went on a weekday) and it was great to see so many people out and about having some fall fun. I overheard one mom call the bumpy pumpkins "pumpkins with zits" and I will forever call them that. I never bring any home #apartmentliving, but I did enjoy the sites, that is for sure.

The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 42

The Good:
A family at school are fellow Red Sox fans. They went up to Fenway for the Sox/Rays game last week and caught a foul ball! They brought it to school so I could see it. Totally has to be good luck that I touched some Red Sox magic, right?

The Random:
Who knew you could buy sugar cane at Whole Foods?

The Fun:
I went on a nature walk with our 3rd graders as they compared our ecosystem to the rainforests they are studying. We got really lucky and saw a deer grazing!
