Apple Picking At Wightman’s Farm


Sorry for the long absence over here! I feel like everything has been “go go go” and non-stop around here lately which has me feeling stretched a little thin. Luckily, my mom came to town this weekend and we decided to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and head upstate to go apple picking.

Well, Google Maps took us all over the freaking place and what was supposed to be only an hour drive turned out to be three hours and when we were finally 15 miles away, every road that lead to the place was under construction and closed. So, we turned back around and headed to a completely different farm in New Jersey called Wightman’s Farms.

My ideas about the whole day were completely turned upside down. Everyone was cranky from lack of naps and a decent meal and being stuck in a carseat all day but we made the best of it and came home with a whole lot of apples and donuts!

We were given these red bags to fill up and the girls went crazy trying to pick as many as they could!

Luckily for us, eating apples while picking was encouraged : )

What I loved about this trip was realizing how much I need to get out of the city every so often! It felt so good to be out in the fresh air and seeing the rolling hills with trees that go on as far as I could see. There were daydreams about our house with a sprawling backyard that sits right in front of the woods where the girls could run, climb trees, and where we would have our friends over in the summer for BBQs. Of course it didn’t take long for me to be itching to get back to our little apartment in the greatest city in the world. But, it did feel nice to be out if even only for the afternoon and think about a life that could be.
