See Part 1 here . On our second day and the main reason for the trip, we went to the Apple Festival (Hendersonville, NC). It was forecasted to be a rainy day so not very many vendors and people were there that day. Thankfully, it only drizzled every now and then so we were still able to enjoy the day. The boys had a great time riding kiddie rides (except for the hot air balloon, which Aiden hated!). And you would expect that there would be apple photos since it is an apple festival after all, right? Well, every time I came near an apple stand, I was too busy drooling at the delicious goodies and looking for honey crisp (our favorite variety!) that taking a photo was the last thing on my mind!
