Early today my daughter Ella and I were being bums so I decided to get moving and Goold Orchard seemed like the perfect place to go. When I asked Ella "Do you want to go apple picking?" I was met with "NOW?!" and a rush of wind as she got ready.

I love Goold it's only about a half hour from my place, only about 9 miles from downtown Albany and the people there are great. The weather is perfect right now too. Cold enough for a sweatshirt but you can't see your breath.So for about $25 we got a bag of apples, Gallon of cider and a dozen cider donuts. More importantly we had a great time!

Before you ask that's the hat she got for braving a roller coaster at Disney. lol
