Apple Orchard 2013

Two years ago, Kevin's parents came up and all of us went to an apple orchard in the cities.  It was the twins' first fall, so they were only 7 month old.  Last year, we were home a weekend in the fall so all of us went to a pumpkin farm there.  So it has become a tradition and we knew Kate and Matthew would have a fun experience this year.

We have so many orchards and pumpkin farms to pick from in the cities.  I decided on Afton Apple Orchard because of its fun kids' playground area, petting zoo, hay ride, and pumpkin patches.  

Kate was shy and either clung to Grandma or myself.  The swings were enough adventure for her.  Matthew loved the big playground!  It had several tubes for the kids to crawl through that linked up to each climbing structure and slide.  

Petting Zoo - feeding the goats withe grandpa!

Love these pictures....thanks Grandpa for posing with your grandson! :)

Hay ride out to the orchard and pumpkin patches.

The kids picked three pumpkins to take home.

{love my two little pumpkins}

We did take home a bag of apples and Joyce and I made apple crisp for dessert for the weekend.  We think it came out pretty, darn tasty!  (Just ask us!) :)

So happy Grandma and Grandpa could come up and continue in this fun, fall tradition.  It's fun to make these memories especially now as the twins are getting older.
