At The Orchard
Hello! You may have noticed that I was MIA this past week. We took a week long trip to travel to see our family so I unplugged from the computer and that was a breath of fresh air. I started off my road trip with a trip to Atlanta and met with my blogging buddy Brandi while shopping at Ikea. She is such a sweet person!
For a whole week we were entertained by our family. We went to the state fair, our home town throws a great one every year, which is always a treat! The kids rode rides while us adults stuffed our faces with fries drenched in vinegar, gyros, fried mushrooms, elephant ears, and candy apples.
We left early Sunday and headed up to Blue Ridge, GA for an afternoon of apple picking. Mercier Orchard is located in a small town in the north Georgia mountains. It has been around since 1943 and grows not only apples but peaches, cherries, strawberries, nectarines, plums, blackberries and blueberries.
Driving up to Blue Ridge through the mountains is very scenic. It was as if the mountains opened up and showed us her beauty. We were in awe and plan on taking this trip again to explore more of this area.
To get those gems at the top the kids had to use the daddy ladder!
We are in love with Mercier Ochard and we will be back! Now to figure out what to do with all those delicious apples. See ya soon!
