Apple Orchard and Pumpkin Patch, What a Great Combination!

We live about 20 minutes from Hendersonville, which is known for its apple orchards. I'd really been wanting to go check one out, and Brad was fighting tooth and nail. I don't know what it is about guys and stuff like this. Even today at church our pastor was talking about feeling like he has to check his man card when his wife drags him there.

Too bad for Brad, his parents were here this weekend and his mom also loves stuff like this. We didn't have anything else to do and I can't stand just sitting around watching TV when we have company, so off we went. We went to Grandad's Apples.
What a great place! It had everything all in one place:  apples (u pick or they pick), pumpkins, corn maze, country store (apple everything imaginable), and farm animals. We got a lot of pumpkins and apples. Brad also got an apple slush and I had a carmel apple (don't tell my dentist!).

 We are forever trying to get a good family picture. Riley is forever making that impossible :)

Pretty much an awesome Saturday! We all went to church this morning then Brad's parents had to hit the road. Third Day and Tenth Avenue North are having a concert at our church tonight and we were planning to go, but I have to go to a meeting, so Brad's going with one of the guys he works with. Stoopid work.

What did you do this weekend??


  1. I think the Apple Orchard sounds like fun! Glad you finally got him to go with you. : )
    Saturday was my birthday, so I celebrated with friends and went to a football game. Pretty fabulous weekend!!

  2. What a great weekend for you guys! Now I'm google searching for the closest apple orchard. Third Day and Tenth Avenue North are some of my favorite bands! Riley is such a cutie! Is he a chocolate lab?

  3. such a fun Saturday!!! And I think that family pic looks just fine!!

  4. How fun! I am definitely checking out a pumpkin patch this year! Last year I didn't get a pumpkin, but I am so getting one for my front porch this year!
