Carter Mountain Orchard

On Saturday there were all kinds of Fall Festivals in the area. Even though the forcast was not too good...rain again...we decided to chance it and go to Carter Mountain Orchard in Charlottesville, Virginia.  Normally, we were told, the last mile to the top of the mountain would take over an hour to drive. Since the weather was cool and rainy we drove right up.

An apple orchard on top of a mountain...wow, was pretty cool. They had buildings with things to buy, a wine tasting area (we purchased a bottle of Riesling), all kinds of apple items (I got an apple cider slushy, it was wonderful, little boy loved it) and more. You could pick your own apples off the trees or out of large crates outside the buildings. That is where we "picked" ours.

Here are two layouts using Spooktacular by Cindy Ritter. 



Monticello in Virginia

We went to go visit our grandson, Mikhail, and yes his parents, LOL! We love them all equally, okay almost, little boy is a little in the lead! He is so cute!

His parents had to work on Thursday, okay I take that back...Timothy had to work half a day. Rayna and Mikhail were sick, throwing up sick, when we arrived on Wednesday, Oct. 8. Rayna watches another little boy so took the next day off because of illness. Poor little boy, and poor Rayna.

So...Ken and I went to Monticello for the morning/ early afternoon. It is President Thomas Jefferson's estate in Charlottesville, Virginia. We had a cool but very nice day on Thursday.  Rained Friday, Saturday, Sunday and most of the way home Monday. Then, of course, it rained in Ohio the next few days...but not as much.

Here are four layouts of Monticello. I got most of the photos in, have to do a couple more of the cemetery.

These layouts are done with a kit called Regal Earth, love the deep tones in this kit. Cindy Ritter is the designer, love her kits! Click on the kit title to go to Plain Ditial Wrapper (a brand new store for her) and see the whole kit, or purchase it.
