Yesterday we took a break from school (and work!) to take an impromptu trip to Oregon Heritage Farms!
This is a wonderful family farm operated by my Book Club friend Kim. It is known county-wide as THE place to go for apples and harvest fun. :o) Each year Kim adds something new: this year there is a covered picnic area and an apple-hole game, and our NEW FAVORITE: cider slushies!! Along with the slushies and some donuts as a treat, we bought a gallon of cider, a frozen pie, and some Jupiter grapes to take home. Oh, and each kid got to choose a honey stick, too. ;o)
|Goats are always a hit.|
|The littles went straight to the bounce house;|
the bigs, to the shop.
|Our new obsession: cider slushies|
This was such a fun way to celebrate the last day of summer. :o) And what a great summer it was!! We are looking forward to fall and all our traditional autumn activities in the coming months.....
