Fall isn't all raking leaves and talking about foliage. If you haven't already, you should check out an apple orchard!

We went to Gilby's Apple Orchard on Saturday. Gilby's is northeast of Aitkin. I'd heard lots about it, so we checked it out.

I've gotta say, I recommend it! I took video of our adventure with the Apple Blaster, but unfortunately we were having so much fun that the video was unusable. Just imagine: apples loaded into giant slingshots and launched at targets far away, then SPLAT when you actually connect. Noice!
