In the midwest, it is pretty much a tradition in the autumn to go to an apple orchard, pick your own apples, and pay extravagant prices on things like jams, honey butter, and apple salsa. Many places have hay rides around the orchard, corn or hay mazes, and other activities for the family.
This past Tuesday, as you probably already know, we went with our Muslim homeschool group to an apple orchard. We are currently a fairly small group of about 5 families that come on a regular basis. We had three families that came to the orchard, which was still a lot of fun for the kids as each of them has a friend in one of the three families, alhamdulilah!
Here’s our day in pictures (from my phone camera… we aren’t rich enough to get a DSLR at this point, hehe):
