Apple Hill

Even though we’ve only lived up here for seven years, I can hardly remember a fall that we didn’t go to Apple Hill. Daddy & I used to go up all the time, to pick up fresh fruit & go wine tasting. Then…kids came along! Now we make sure to make up there at least once a year, every fall (along with every other Sacramentan!).

This year, Mama & I took all three kids…an adventure in itself! We started off at Abel’s, for lunch & a bit of fun in the pumpkin patch. We then tried to go out to High Hill Ranch, near our old stomping ground at Madrona Vineyards. But the parking was CRAZY and I knew it wasn’t going to be worth the walk. So we went back to our favorite stop, Boa Vista Orchards. We enjoyed apple dumplings ala mode, and lots of apple samples! Olivia discovered the yummy “pink” Galas (a surefire hit!). Both kids had fun running around in the pumpkin patch on the side of the road too. Abbie wasn’t too thrilled with my attempts to get her out of the stroller or sling & onto the ground for some photo ops, but you only have a first pumpkin patch trip once, right?
All in all, we had a fabulous time, and I know we’ll be back again next year
