Apple picking, Ashville and pizza

A few Fridays back , Abby had a volleyball game in Asheville. We decided to make a day of it and stopped in Morganton at the Apple Orchard that we have went to for years. It was a beautiful day and the kids had so much fun picking apples. It sure doesn't take long to pick a basket with all this help! Abby's teammates and their families met up with us there and we snapped a quick picture some of the girls and their siblings

After we left the apple orchard, we were early for the game, so right before we got to the gym, we spotted a little ice cream shop on the side of the road. I cannot even remember the name of the place now! They had some yummy gelato though! It was a quirky kind of place, but it was a perfect way to spend an hour.We went from there to the game and here is a picture of Abby and her middle school team mates. We have been so blessed to have had a good season with such sweet girls, a great coach and awesome parents. The girls have had a blast together learning the game of volleyball and making friendships.
So then ( are ya tired yet?) we left Asheville and drove to Hickory where we met our friends, the Dillinghams for pizza. we stayed such a long time, we were afraid the owner would tell us to leave and never come back! The Dillinghams are the kind of friends that you can not see for months and when we do get together , we just pick right back up where we left off. Thankfully, our kids do the same thing! They love hanging out and playing together!

We left our house around 9am and got home around 10pm! A very full day, but such a fun fall memory!
