What fun we had yesterday afternoon!!! After church the three bigs had plans to go on a hike with some friends, so Blake and I took Chad, Lane and Eliza to an apple orchard!
First we went to the grocery store to forage for our lunch, and then went to the food court at the mall to eat what we had bought!
We have not been to this particular apple orchard for many years. It has changed a lot! Many new fun things have been added that we did not know about!
There were two huge John Deere tractors to climb on and sit in! The boys ran to this first!
There were hay rack rides up to the fields of apples. We never did this, but it looked fun! There were all kinds of fun things to climb on and in, and even a spinning apple you could sit in and spin!
The views were amazing…..just like the views from the ridge we call home!
There were animals to pet! Eliza liked this part! She was pretty unhappy the rest of the time…..but her crazy parents had her out and about during her nap time!
The corn maze was amazing!! Ha, Ha! Just had to say that! Lane was a hoot to follow through this maze!
The sign said to find Charlie. We found Charlie!
Last, but not least, we climbed the hill to pick our own apples. The kids each pulled one from the trees to eat first. Blake bit into Eliza’s to start it for her and said “Sweetheart! These taste like Honey Crisp!” You are not allowed to pick the Honey Crisp! Someone left the Mama in charge of the map!
Here’s what we were looking for! Gala apples!
What a FUN day!! Eliza slept the whole way home, and her Mama might have closed her eyes too! (shhh! Don’t tell!) The boys have thanked us over and over for the fun day we had!
Hope you made some new memories this weekend too!!
