Minnesota Grown

 My little Grandson was visiting this weekend from Nebraska and my daughter and I wanted to do something fun with him. We had a beautiful fall day so we headed off to Stillwater to visit the apple orchard. Aamodts Orchard is one of many in our state. It was amazing and I couldn't believe the crowds. You could pick your own apples or head to the store where you could taste all the different apples they grow, Honeycrisp, Fireside, Regent, Jonathan and Haraldson. They had a bakery and you could smell the apple donuts frying or sample a piece of apple pie,apple crisp, turnovers, and muffins all made on site. Outside they were making kettlecorn and it was delicious. There were so many fun things for the kids to do. Eric's favorite was the maze made of haybales, feeding the animals and climbing the apple trees.You could take home all kinds of fun pumpkins but the best part for me was spending a day with family.
 Don't forget to submit your e mail for the upcoming contest starting in November. I will be giving away 10 prizes of charm packs and layer cakes of past Holly Taylor groups.
