As you may remember, we tried to go to Fall Harvest Orchard last week, but it was closed and settled for Apple Jack Orchards with the promise to go back to Fall Harvest this week on Thursday when they were open! So Mac and I met Pam, Levi and his grandma there this morning!
It had been two years since we've been there (see above pic!) and it changed owners during that time. It remains very similar to how it was but I'd forgot how much there is to do! It may have also helped that it was a little chilly and damp, so there was almost nobody else there (you know how much I hate crowds!).
The corn pit was definitely the biggest hit but the wagon ride, the animals and the pumpkins were high on the list as well. We didn't even get to go on the train! Next time. I told Pam that I think it was the first time we'd gotten together where we only had two kids between us! Usually I have my three, she has Lilly and Levi and Sharon with Laena and Braeland, too! Anyway, we had so much fun. I mean, we were there for FOUR HOURS and Mac was so busy that not once did he say he was hungry! A record for him, I'm sure. Also, he crashed on the ride home, which is only 10 minutes :)
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.
