Learning to focus less on dieting and more on overall health and wellness

Fall rocks

Saturday we spent the day outside enjoying Fall activities with Len’s cousin and her boyfriend. Three years ago we started an apple picking tradition so the four of us go together each year. The first year we hit up Brooksby farm.


First annual apple picking

The second year we went to a totally bogus farm where there was minimal apples and an annoying corn maze. (Some people like that stuff, I don’t have the patience.) I can’t seem to find pics from that year so just let’s just skip 2009.

2010 brought us back to old faithful– Brooksby Farm

This year we had a little addition to the party who happened to LOVE chasing apples.


Say hello to Kenzy-- Jules and Sharkys puppy.


Before jumping on the hay ride, a random girl asked if we wanted their homemade apple picker. It looked a little ghetto and I was reluctant but now I cannot imagine picking without it.

That contraption helped us reach even the highest apples in the tree. If you want one for yourself all you need is a broom stick and an empty milk carton. Simple as that.

Len thought it would be funny to peg apples at me.

And find apples that resemble human parts.

Can you guess what that might be?

Jules and Sharky had fun watching their little one run around and make friends.

They spoil her just as much as we do Eleanor.

If you are in the Boston area, Brooksby farm is a great place to take the kids, friends or partner. They have animals, pumpkins, food, hayrides and a huge variety of apples.
