Hello October! How can you not want to go apple picking and hay riding this time of year?

My family will be heading back to Center Grove Orchard (http://www.centergroveorchard.com/index2.php) this weekend to enjoy some more fall fun. My four year old had a blast there last weekend and though I am still finding stray corn kernals from the corn pool in his coat pockets, I loved it too.
