Fall fun

Ever wonder how cider is made? Well, we now know! We went to a cider mill and learned all about how apple presses work. 

It was a cool place that had a fun playground, ducks and geese to feed, old cars, trucks and tractors, pretty flowers and pumpkins, a snack shop with all kinds of apple-related treats and ice cream, of course. There were lots of places to stick your head in and take souvenir pictures. And there was a gift shop that had all kinds of syrups, butters, salsas, sauces, ciders and more.

Biscuit took a nap on the ride over, so by the time we arrived, he was ready to go. He played cowboy and rode his imaginary horse all over the place.

Grandpa explained to him how old-fashioned apple presses work. And Biscuit really liked the sweet cider. They had kid-sized servings of it in pumpkin squirt bottles.

The cool temperatures and the breezes here set the mood for our fall fun.

Here are some pictures from the day:

These ducks have really bad toupees!

Biscuit tries out his sweet cider.

This tractor was cool. It has a slide coming out the back.
