National Apple Harvest Festival

For the 3rd or 4th year in a row, we went to the National Apple Harvest Festival in Adams County, Pennsylvania (just north of Gettysburg).

The festival is a lot of crafts, but also of Apple products. We get jelly to take home & eat apple cobbler & apple crisp while there. My husband also learned the difference between apple juice & apple cider - sorry I did not hear that conversation - I was watching Jacob with his last juice box.

This year we took a free apple harvest history tour - which was actually fairly educational (In my experience this type of tour can go either way.).

It was hot!

So afterwards we decided to check out a local orchard/winery (we saw their signs on the tour).

Michael got a couple bottles of hard cider. Jacob got a non-alcoholic slushy drink, mine had a shot of wine added to it. Now those helped with the heat!
