Yesterday, we met Pam and Levi at Fall Harvest Orchard for a play date...only to learn they aren't open during the week! Argh. Levi's heart was broken, so...I quickly Googled other local orchards and Apple Jack Orchards was open! Well, part of it was open, which was good enough for us. And it was only 15 minute drive. Perfect.
The weather was beautiful, there were only a few other kids there and Levi, Mac and Reagan had a BLAST. Have I mentioned how much I LOVE orchards, especially when they aren't super crowded? We played outside, went inside to look at all the treats and have an apple donut (of course!) and then went back outside to play some more. It was perfect. Other than they don't have pumpkins out yet for purchase, which bummed Mac out. We found a crate of mini pumpkins, which he loved just as much, though!
We didn't get to do fall play dates last fall because Korri had preschool MWF and Levi had it TTh! Don't have to worry about that this year. Next Thursday, we are hoping to actually visit Fall Harvest (and yes, I checked and they ARE open Thursdays!!). Here's to a great start to a beautiful fall!
Here's a little animation of the day: https://goo.gl/photos/Q5xYLiXaoDxw2ZQA9
Nearly half a million babies (1 in 10) are born premature in the US each year which is higher than that of most other developed nations. This is the journeys of our first born son, Finnegan, who was born 14 weeks early and weighed only 1 pound 15 ounces at birth. Of our daugher, Korrigan, who was born a healthy 7 pounds, 7 ounces at 37 weeks. And of our second son, MacKeegan, who was also born at 37 weeks at a whopping 8 pounds, 13 ounces. Our continued adventures reminds us daily how good God is.
