Yesterday we went to Breezy Acres Fruit Farm to take a tour of their apple orchards. This past weekend was an "open house" type event for farms in our area. Visitors were invited to go "behind the scenes" of the various working farms. We went to check this particular farm out mostly because of the promise of a hayride, a favorite amongst all kids, right? Anyways, we got to tour the orchard via hayride and then they let us each pick one apple. Brady was delighted and ended up eating 3 of the 4 apples we picked (Brady picked two, oops!). We think we will go back again this week or next to actually spend some time picking lots of apples to bring home with us. Life in the midwest can be so simple and peaceful, just have to know where to find it.
