An Apple a Day

Located in the heart of the Smokies, is the fabulous Apple Barn Cider Mill, surrounded by acres of apple tress and endless rolling hills, grassy fields, horses, and streams. The Apple Barn Farm was the perfect place for a welcoming breakfast on our first day of our family getaway to the mountains.

Upon arrival, we were treated to baskets full of apple goodies....namely, apple muffins and apple fritters. Which we topped with apple butter. And complimented with fresh apple juice. It was heaven for an apple lover, which I am, for sure.

Little Hudson loved traipsing freely around the grounds, stopping to say hello to raggedy scarecrows and various stuffed friends that graced the property, no doubt there celebrating Fall and the upcoming holiday.....Halloween!

With full bellies and renewed energy we were on to a day's worth of fun at a fabulously fun & kitschy theme park....Dollywood here we come!

What a good time we had. The weather was perfect for a trip to the mountains. I guess Hudson needed some alone time when he got under the table. Would love to have some of those apple muffins and apple butter. Delicious!!!
