Apple Jack's Orchard

Mom and Finn waiting on the cow train on a beautiful, chilly fall day

Finn loved the cow train for a minute or two.  Luke was super excited to have him ride in his lap.

Finn loved the corn pit.  Who knew this would keep him so busy??

When his brothers were not dumping corn on his head, Finn would dump the corn on  himself

Checking out the kernels with Liam in the background

Who is that pouring corn on Finn's head???  Hint:  its not his brothers or his mother.

1, 2, 3, 4

Finn also loved the animals

Aiden is checking out the chickens

Look at all the pumpkins!
Hey, this is FUN!

More dumping.  We will be washing corn for at least a week.

Liam wanted me to take a picture of him swimming in the corn

All the boys

Each fall, we try to make a trip to the apple and pumpkin orchards.  Before the big boys started school all day/everyday, we usually made several trips to the orchards because they are so much fun.  When we pulled up, the boys realized where we were going and asked why we don't come to the orchards more often??  Its hard to fit in everything on the weekend, but we managed a trip to Apple Jack's orchard over the weekend while the weather cooperated on a sunny (yet chilly) fall day.

The boys loved the corn pit, especially Finn.  He thought it was hilarious when his brothers dumped corn on his head (thankfully, he liked it).  I am tempted to put one of these in the backyard to keep him busy.  He really could have stayed in there for longer, he was so busy digging and scooping and dumping corn kernels.

The big boys also loved the jumping pillow which is like a trampoline, but lower on the ground and maybe even more bouncy.  They also enjoyed the animals, picking out pumpkins, eating caramel apples, etc...It was a fun fall day for everyone and hopefully we will fit in another trip to a different orchard before the season ends.

Happy Fall!!
