The trip was to the orchard, where we go every few weeks, but it was still a new adventure to experience everything with their classmates. And there were a few things we'd never done, or hadn't done in a long time, like the hay ride, corn maze, pumpkin patch, and apple cider demonstration.
We've had a pretty warm fall so far, but last Friday was FRIGID! Lows that morning were in the 20's...and the orchard is located at the highest point in the county. I think the car registered 35 degrees as we were driving there about 9:00 that morning. Yikes!
I broke out the girls' warm coats for the first time, and I have to say I loved seeing my little snow bunnies all bundled up.
At least we had warm sunshine...and by the end of the morning, we were able to shed our hood and our top layer.
Of course I snapped a few (or a hundred) pictures...

|Love the morning sun and the pigtails!!!|
The girls were pretty tentative as we went through. They did not want to let go my hands, even for me to snap a picture. This was one of only a couple of shots I got. Poor babes!
After the corn maze, we headed to the pumpkin patch. The girls must have picked up 20 pumpkins each before making their selections.

We played a bit on the playground before it was time to pack up. I got one last picture of my by-then tired babies.

Fun, fun, fun!!!
