To kick off Fall Fest weekend, we headed out to the boonies for some apple picking (Bell's Orchard). You'd think that this would be a popular fall weekend attraction; but thanks to the heavy rain, we had the place all to ourselves. Quite literally. It was perfect. Thanks to the rain, I also got very few photos.
Muddy boots, Costco Pizza, & 40 pounds of apples later, we had ourselves an apple pie making party.

'Twas a great start to the weekend!
Saturday called for football, food, and lounging. What else could our tired med student hubbies ask for? Catherine and I worked away in the kitchen and the boys enjoyed being couch potatoes.
|Catherine had the house perfectly decorated for a fall football day. She even made some delicious sweet tea in perfect southern style. Yum. Can't get enough sweet tea.|
The following treats were made and devoured (click on link for recipe):
Bloomin' Onion Cheese Bread
Bacon-Wrapped Water chesnuts
This was just half of the full fall fest weekend. More to come!
