We have been back to school for just over a month now and we have had 2 of our last ever milestones in our house!!!!! The youngest is in underwear!!!!! No more pull ups!!!! Yay!!!!! Everyone happy potty dance!!!!!! And then this past week we had our last “first” field trip. Does that make sense? Our youngest had his first ever field trip and bus ride. So with no more kids, that is a final “first” chapter in our house!!!
Our Pre K took a field trip to one of the local apple orchards here in Illinois. We went to Broom’s Apple Orchard! I have been to this apple orchard many, many times and love it every time we go!
I have a picture of all my kids with this sign!!! Love this family tradition when we go there. Now the day before we went to the orchard we had a downpour of rain so we did not venture into the corn maze or pumpkin patch. It was just a smidge muddy.
But while we were there, they gave a tour of the building and saw where they sort apples and store them in the BIG fridge.
He was trying to warm up in the fridge.
After the tour we got to pick a 1/4 peck of apples.
Daddy and Colton finding the perfect apples.
After we had picked our apples we headed to the store for some fresh apple cider!!! It was super nummy. Mommy also got some raw honey.
After the apple orchard we hit a local park for a picnic and play time before heading home.
With it being fall I would encourage you to find your local apple orchard and check it out. And if you ask they may give tours ? I know our kids enjoy the tours for sure!!!!
On a side note. My husband and I sure remember the school bus seats being a lot bigger when we were little.
Happy Fall Everyone!!
