Last week we took the little one for her first visit to Wilson's apple orchard just outside of town. We couldn't have picked a more beautiful day.

But we had fun touching the leaves and talking about them anyway. (She has started hugging us recently. It might be the best thing ever.)
Salt Fork Farms eggs, maple sausage from the Stamps Family farm, and Wilson's apples. That's a 100% local breakfast!
It's Thursday and that means it's time for Simple Lives!
