Fall Festival at McKenzie's Farm

That apple cider donut that we had at Apple Harvest was from McKenzie's Farm in Milton, NH and it was so good that we had to go check out their fall festival a few weeks later. We did underestimate how packed it was going to be. What a huge crowd! We're glad we powered through the craziness of parking and walking because it was a lot of fun.

Since October the kids have been getting they're face painted about twice a month with all of the festivals. Both of them are pretty obsessed. 

We went on a hay ride around the orchard. It was a ton of fun and George and Edith were elated. 

These views never get old. New Hampshire truly is a beautiful place all year around.

Apple Harvest Day

Apple Harvest Day in Dover, New Hampshire is another fall tradition that we have. It's a ton of fun but  I highly suggest heading in early if you have little ones. It typically gets a little crazy the longer the day goes on. This year started out super rainy but we loaded everyone up in their rain gear and headed downtown. After a couple of hours in the rain it finally slacked off and we ended up staying a bit longer. Because of the rain there wasn't as many people and it turned out to be the most fun we've had at the festival so far.

We started the day with apple cider donuts. 

Face painting at a friends booth followed by... and drying out at Flight Coffee.

The rain finally slowed and we headed back out and down to the Best of Times booth where they were cutting hair. George really likes getting his hair cut and there was no line.

A little mini petting zoo was a big hit.

And the brand new plow truck complete with a new hard hat. 

Thanks for another great Apple Harvest Festival Dover. We'll see you next year!
