Apples, and Pumpkins, and Children, Oh My!

This week in Northeastern Ohio we are enchanted by all things fall.  The leaves have begun to change and we’re seeing the first glimpse of flaming crimson and glowing yellow leaves. Meanwhile, our beloved Lake Erie is keeping the temps in the mid to upper 70s for us to fully enjoy all things autumn.

In Lorain County, we know that all things autumn means much more than your standard Pumpkin Spice Latte.  With newsnet5 in tow, we took a quick trip to Miller’s Apple Hill in Amherst earlier this week to relive all of our favorite fall traditions…
