We arrived late Friday evening, got the kids tucked in a little although they didn't stay there, lol. Had a short adult visit around the campfire before going to bed ourselves. The next morning we woke up and the kids jumped right into playing. They loved driving these cars around.
We got started on the apple picking as other families began to arrive. There were so many apples on a couple of the trees. Some of the big trees that were there 8 years ago are no longer there and some of the tiny ones are growing strong.
Once we had all the trees picked at it had started to rain a little bit. Not much and nothing big, but suiting for God's signs of the tears as we do our last of many annual events.
With clear skies ahead we started the cider pressing process. This year Bri's Dad had a new grinder, basically a big blender for the apples. So we were able to get a lot more juice from not as many apples. They were also all in really good shape so we didn't have to do as much cutting out of bad parts like we have had to do in the past.
The kids even got to swim before we left. We were going to leave before dinner because we wanted to get home early (I was doing a triathlon the following day), they bumped up dinner early so we stayed for that then headed home. Not as much text this year because I'm already a month behind in getting this posted.
