Austin and I live what others have called an “all work and no play” lifestyle, and it’s rare that we take a day off. Since we didn’t take any vacation time this summer, we realized that we needed a couple days to ourselves. Of course with all the work that we still have lined up we decided to take a mini-vaca of 2 days off. Well, after we decided that we had 2 days to ourselves we needed something fun to do. We knew that we didnt want to venture far from home. Since we feel like we missed out on Summer, we decided that we were going to enjoy a couple days of the Fall Season.
So, We came up with a great day off plan that we were going to go pick our own apples, and make specialty caramel apples for our family as a surprise to them… I will tell the rest of the story with the photos…..
The only thing I could have asked for was that we got a little more time to pick our apples, because I felt a little rushed, but thats because we were still picking and everyone on our hayride was already back on and ready for the next stop
The hayride also made a stop at the pumpkin patch, so Austin picked a few pumpkins for us as well…
I was more interested in the sunflowers in the pumkin patch
We spent the rest of the day running from store to store to get all the ingredients we needed for our apples. The list of stores is as follows..
1. The Little Candy Store
2. The Candy Shoppe
3. Cannons Bakery Supplies
5. AC MOORE
And now onto the fun part:
Decorating was my job

The end Product:
We put 4 apples each in Halloween bowls that we bought and surprised our family members with them. After making these I understand why they cost so much in the store because they are so much work. We were only gone from the house delivering the apples for about 2 hours when we returned home to this disaster…
Lola was very interested in all the ingredients that were in the trash from the caramel apples, so she ripped it apart while we were gone. Go figure…. still, it was a fun day…
