No matter what variety of apple you prefer there is something for everyone at Lynd's Fruit Farm in Pataskala. Apple picking season starts today and runs through late October, with the pumpkin patch opening around October 1. This year's corn maze theme is The Wild West and it opens September 10. There is a fee for the corn maze, depending on the age of the child participating. Last year my family found the task of understanding where to go and how to pay for the picked apples quite confusing - I am hopeful that this year the signage is better. Once we finally got to the apple orchard we had a blast - Matthew even sat down right down on the ground at one point to eat his apples! I am especially excited about this year's apple picking trip as Matthew has suddenly developed a true love of this delicious fruit. Check out www.lyndfruitfarm.com for more information and the different apple variety picking schedules.
Our family will also be attending the Autumn Moon Celebration on September 25. This very special event celebrates the importance of the moon in the Chinese culture. We will gather with other families from the Central Ohio chapter of Families With Children From China to share play time, crafts, moon cakes and a lantern parade. This annual event always make our Fall family fun list!
