Today, Tadj and I took the kids to the cider mill. Grayson, Scarlett, and I have gone together with preschool for the last 2 years. Scarlett and I will go again in a few weeks. But Tadj and Sofia haven't gotten to go in 3 years. That was sad. So we went. It was a BEAUTIFUL day (though a bit cloudy at first). We got there right at 10am because I figured a pretty day would draw a huge crowd. Luckily there were very few people there in the morning and we got to do a lot of stuff without a lot of hassle.First, we picked apples. A whole 1/2 bushel of them. That's a lot! I think we'll be eating them for a long time.
Don't ask me why my kids thought these poses were cute. They just did. Funny thing was, they each posed this way independently. None of them saw another one doing this. Must be a weird Hemingway trait. HA!
Kids at the pumpkin patch. Check out Scarlett's gangsta stance. She looks ready to take these pumpkin pickin' skillz to the streets.
Feeding a cute little baby goat. The big goats just liked to eat the cone the feed was served in, but this guy ate right out of our hands.
Tricia and Nick just so happened to be going to Blakes today too, so we met up. We never get to see them anymore, so this was an extra special treat. Scarlett didn't leave Tricia's side all day.
Check out that mean looking horse. YIKES! I've never met more friendly farm animals ;)
Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year. I LOVE the autumn colors, the apples, the pumpkins, and the cool, crisp air. I'm SO happy to live in Michigan where this season is especially beautiful.
