Fall Traditions: Cranberry Festival, Apple Picking, & Pumpkin Patch

Since moving to New England, we look forward to doing so many traditions together as a family every Fall! A few of these traditions include:

  • Wading in the bogs at the Cranberry Festival
  • Apple picking (and eating apple cider donuts!) at a farm
  • Going to a pumpkin patch with friends
  • Driving through Vermont to see all the colorful leaves

We had so much fun at the Cranberry Festival in Cape Cod this year! It's so neat to see how they harvest cranberries. We threw on some waders and walked around the bogs, trying our best not to fall in!

Olivia had fun picking up cranberries, though she wouldn't eat any of them.

We got a whole bunch of our friends to join us in the bogs which made the day extra fun! Unfortunately, we had a few friends accidentally slip into the water right after taking this group picture😬

Here's some pictures of all our great friends that joined us-

I love these two💕

We tried to put some waders on Olivia but they were WAY too big. We were all dying laughing though because they made her legs look so unrealistically long😂

The next weekend, we went apple picking at Honey Pot Hill Orchards. Of all the apple farms around here, this one is my favorite because they have these cute ladders that you can climb to the top of the trees on. Plus, their apple cider donuts are divine. Ryan missed this family picture because he was sleeping in the carseat and I didn't have the heart to wake him.

Some good friends joined us on our adventure!

It was about 85 degrees and we vowed never to go apple picking on such a hot day again. We were all sweating so so much!

Olivia loved eating all of the apples!

The next week, we went to Ward's Berry Farm with a bunch of friends to pick out a pumpkin! We all hopped on a tractor ride together that took us out to this cute pumpkin field.

My friend helped me watch Olivia so I could take care of Ryan - it's tricky going out with two kids these days since Olivia is so busy!

We had a blast that day with our friends!

These boys are all the cutest!

Olivia was trying her best to keep up with the bigs kids!

Our pictures from Vermont are here!
