Weekend Snapshots

Thursday, October 15, 2015

Well,  I finally got some pics together of our weekend outing.  I know it's been a bit busy with personal pics over here after our vacation to Branson, too.  But for those of you who are still following, we began our day, in St. Joseph, Missouri, at Remington Nature Center, learning about native plant and animal life and Missouri history.
They had lots of pelts to touch and hands-on exhibits to experience, including a room just for kids.  So fun!
After grabbing some lunch at Pappy's, we then made our way out to Schweizer Orchards for some apple picking.  (Click here and here for photos of previous trips.)  We usually make this trip during the week sometime, but it just didn't work to do so this year.  So, when we arrived and saw people everywhere and the parking lot overflowing, we weren't even sure if we wanted to stop.  It was a madhouse!  But alas, we needed those apples.  So, we made our way through the maze of people, near the store itself, to the orchards and were relieved to find them much more peaceful.
We usually are able to pull our vehicle up along the rows of trees, but they don't allow such on the weekends due to the hayrides.  So, we lugged our 65 pounds of apples, which is quite a bit less than we usually pick (We still have some apple butter leftover from last year's batches.), back to the store, where my hubby waited patiently in line.  I kept the rest of the crew busy on the playground.  We decided to skip the long line for the hayride out to the pumpkin patch and call it a day.  I couldn't resist sharing this cute pic of my littlest just before we left.  He's learning to go potty like a big boy and bringing his little potty along for extended periods of time away from home seems to be the easiest way of doing things.  Anyway, he just looked so proud of himself and sweet, sitting there with his apple cider slush in one hand.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!  Oh, and let's go, Royals!
