Hanging at the orchard

It may have been warm today, but the change of the seasons is coming.  One of our favorite fall activities is the local orchards.  We tend to visit our favorite several times in a season, but today we headed to another local orchard.

The man child decided that the orchard really wouldn’t be any fun, so he hung out with his xBox and we packed in.  Dad, Mom, three kids, a giant kid named DJ and his lovely girl Julie.

First order of business…


We had to feed the goats (who were not hungry at all), but DJ really wanted to feed them, so we tried.


We had to play in the play area too.


Something has happened to us, and we have gotten old.

I love this little monster.

Mama's Boy

We had to “ride” the tractors!


Our big guy LOVES John Deere. “Its the best, Mom!”


And the best picture of the whole day…


That kid may never get a car!

It was strange without Noah. Just didn’t quite feel right :/ Poor guy. We did get to run into old friends, and that was nice treat to end the trip.
