Autumn – What’s Your Favorite Family Tradition

Autumn is my favorite time of year, especially when I was living on the East coast. I always enjoyed seeing the leaves change color and picking apples. That was something we did every year with my family as they were growing up. We would make a day out of it because it was some distance away.

Now that my daughter is grown and has children of her own she wants to continue the tradition with her family. Where we live in Northern California, Apple Hill isn’t very far away. My daughter and her family spent the day there at different apple orchards, picking apples, and eating some yummy pie. We didn’t get a chance to go with them this year, but we hope to next year.

Besides eating the apples whole, we enjoyed peeling, coring, and slicing the apples with the gadget we had that did this. The children also helped in making desserts with the apples.
