Fall Tradition

For the past nine years, my dear SIL Anabelle and I get together each October and visit a local orchard to enjoy the fall decorations and activities with our boys.  Freshmade apple cider and cider donuts always come home with us.  Here are a few photos from our visit last Saturday.

Anabelle and I with some beautiful mums.

We always make sure to get a photo of all of us together.
Later, we went to dinner, shopped at Michael's, and got some ice cream at Cold Stone Creamery. 

Anabelle put together a sweet scrappy kit for me (she's always so thoughtful), and I made this card with some of the goodies.  The papers are Anna Griffin, the flowers are Petaloo spritzed with some Glimmer Mist (S.W.A.K. and English Ivy), and some Recollections crystals.  Thanks for stopping by!
