October is almost over! Can you believe it? I don't know about you but I'm not quite ready for snow, ice, and a gloomy gray sky just yet. In an effort to take full advantage of our remaining fall time, we made a trip to Franklin Cider Mill.
We've been going to Franklin for a few years now and I get overly excited every year.
How could you not love a place that has tree stumps that are the perfect superhero pedestals?
Around the mill you can find roasted almonds, apples, corn, pies, cider soaked hot dogs, meats, cheeses, and a "ye old water wheel" which sounds much more exciting than it actually is.
There are also gigantic pumpkins. For size, compare it to the little pumpkin in the corner.
Proof that I'm not the only one who thinks fall revolves around Franklin.
These are my people.
When you finally make it in, you're paraded along a long line of goodies. You come with one thing in mind that you want to buy and leave with armfuls.
I promise we went with good intentions of getting cider and doughnuts to share with people. It's not our fault that both were gone by the time we got back to the car!
Well maybe it was our fault a little. . .
Sorry guys! You know you shouldn't trust me with this sort of thing!
Now if you're like me a trip to the cider mill can be particularly glutinous.
So here are some tips to feel better after:
1) Just embrace it and collapse on the floor in a food coma (WARNING: some might mistake you for a pillow!)
2) Grab a buddy, walk it off and enjoy the last days of fall!
