An Apple Pickin' Good Time

Ever since Reese was born, I have been wanting to join the local MOPS (mother's of preschoolers) group. I knew it would be a great way to meet new Christian friends and also a great way for Reese to spend time with other kids her age. My schedule never seemed to permit me to join until this year. The group meets once a month and also has a mom & kid day once a month. I wasn't able to make it to the first meeting since it was on our anniversary, but I was able to go to the first mom & kid day. We went to a local apple orchard for a few hours of fun.

First fun thing on the list was to go out to some of the apple trees for some fun apple pickin'.

Reese got busy picking an apple. Golden delicious was first on our list.....

Then a yummy Jonathan.....OOOOHHHH an apple!!! After her second apple, she was finished. She just wanted to carried this apple around for a while and refused to pick more. Maybe next year she will better understand the concept :)

Next on the list was a fun hayride around the farm. They have rows and rows of apple, peach and cherry trees. They also have a few acres of pumpkins and gourds.....Reese loves pumpkins right now and was very excited when she saw the pumpkins.

Then we were able to check out the apple package process, as well as, watch them make some yummy apple cider. We found this guy along the way. Reese was very amused and wanted her picture with him.

Then what better way to end our fun trip then........

An apple cup full of full strength APPLE CIDER.....yum yum!!!!

So of course we had to get some to bring home for daddy.....and for us too!!!
