Its Apple Picking Time!

in Pomona, NY, which are about a 10-minute drive from my parents' house. We went in late September, and there were plenty of delicious apples to pick. It wasn't crowded at all either, which was a nice bonus, and they didn't mind if you bit into an apple or two while picking (awesome!) And, of course, the orchard has its own country store which sells pies, ciders, and apple cider donuts among other things. 


It really shaped up to be a great apple-picking experience right in our own backyard. Check out their website for their apple & pumpkin picking schedules, events schedule, and more.

This year we're heading a bit farther away to pick apples because we've been invited by family friends and we like to try new things! At the end of this week we're heading up to  in Newburgh, NY to pick apples, pears, sweet corn, and lots of other fresh produce. I am told that there are animals on the farm to pet (but not the horse--he bites!) and adorable wooden play houses for the kids to run through. I really can't wait for our visit, and I'll be sure to post about it soon after.

In early October, we'll be heading to the  in Warwick, NY. Not only does this location offer apple-picking and 36棋牌-brewed ciders (alcoholic and non), but they have hayrides and live music and puppet shows on the weekends (check ahead for schedules). I'm looking forward to our visit there as well and will definitely report back...with pictures!

So, where do you do your apple-picking? And, do you have amazing apple recipes to send me? I'm going to have bags full and I promised my dad a delicious apple pie (don't let him down!)

Wayne Day Bazaar Starts Wednesday! (7/13-7/16)

Oh, the Wayne Day Bazaar. If you are a North Rocklander you probably have some pretty fond memories of this annual fundraising carnival for Stony Point's Wayne Hose Volunteer Fire Department. I remember way back when it was held at . And I've also gone to the carnival when it was held in Haverstraw and, finally, in Letchworth where it is being held again this year.

Now, the Wayne Day Bazaar is basically your typical town carnival with rides, carnival games and guilty pleasure foods--but to a North Rocklander like myself, it really feels like so much more. The memories and good chance that I'll run into old friends just up the ante for me. But, you don't have to be a townie (or newly remade townie like myself) to have a good time!

The Wayne Day Bazaar and Parade

Wednesday, 7/13 @ 6pm-10pm
Thursday, 7/14 @ 6pm-10pm
Friday, 7/15 @ 6pm-11pm
Saturday, 7/16 @ 6pm - 11pm 

Parade is Saturday at 2pm

Check out Rockland Mother's new events calendar!

Since moving back to good ole Rockland County, I've found that there are a ton of local events worth checking out. So, from here on out, I'll be keeping track of events that catch my eye on Rockland Mother's Local Events Calendar. I hope you'll pop on over to the calendar and find an event that you and your family will enjoy.
