first off, i would like to thank my friend jenny for taking all of the upcoming photos, as i left our camera @ home. THANK YOU!!
last thursday, our homeschool co-op suited up & headed off to a local u-pick farm, skytop apple orchard to be exact.
the weather @ 8am, was not promising. the skies were dark & ominous, the wind was blowing & there was more that a bit of nip in the air, BUT we said that if it wasn't raining, we would give it a go & boy, were we glad we did!!
halfway there, the clouds parted & it was nothing but gorgeous blue skies!
here's a photos of our crew, 35 folks in all make the hour trek to skytop (~ 2/3 of the total co-op)
me & ev...& her rainbow pants! (she got sooooo many compliments on these ;)
a giant pumpkin slide on their playground...
ehren lukas feeding the bunnies...;)
the bridge leading into the bamboo forest, which was AWESOME & definitely a hit w/the older boys!
aydin, monkeying around...
we had signed up for the fall harvest tour, which included an education rundown on the orchard & how it operates, a hay ride, a 1/4 peck of apples & a pie-sized pumpkin. not bad for $8, right??
and on friday...??
well, we made apple pie, of course!!
autumn blessings! xo
