County Line Apple Orchard

Last weekend Nana came to visit.  She came in Friday after dinner and stayed through Sunday breakfast.  On Saturday we had a full, fun day.  It started with a delish breakfast consisting of chocolate pancake balls and bacon.  Then we were OFF to Indiana to County Line Apple Orchard.  Boy oh boy was it HOT!  When we left the thermostat read 91.  Yikes.  And, it was very crowded, which isn't surprising since it was a sunny, gorgeous October Saturday.

We enjoyed the play area and petting zoo and then there was a pretty cool cover-band playing in the picnic area where we enjoyed lunch.  Then Delaney and Katie went on the Moo-Choo train ride while Rowe sat with Nana and enjoyed some pink lemonade.  We went on a short tracker ride to some very empty apple trees, but we got some MacIntosh from a big bin and decided to walk through the orchard a bit anyway.  It was really nice to get away from the crowd for a while and we were able to find some Golden Delicious on trees, so the girls were excited that they could actually pick some apples.  After that I was pretty beat and the heat and crowd was getting to me, so we went to the store and Nana got us some amazing apple-cinnamon donuts, apple cidar, an apple pie drapped in caramel, and some apples.  Each of the girls also picked out a toy.  Then we hopped into the hot car, cranked up the air conditioner, and headed home.  Then, Nancy treated Peter and I to dinner and we went to our fave Mexican restaurant in Plainfield and Nana and the girls had McD's Happy Meals.  It was a fun and wonderful weekend.

Looks like a great time! Your family pictures are wonderful! This is one place we say we'll go every fall but never manage to squeeze it in. Hopefully, next year.
