Fun at the Apple Orchard

Today we visited the apple orchard with some friends from church. The kids enjoyed the wagon ride and the tour showing how they make apple cider and also watching the sorting machine. Our trip was pretty late in the season so most of the apples were gone from the trees, but they were able to pick a couple to take home. Next year we will plan an earlier trip so we can pick more apples and hopefully can some apple butter...

Botanical Gardens

Today the kids and I headed to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens while Jerid was working. It was a beautiful day and the gardens were gorgeous. The kids enjoyed the children's garden, and were especially excited to find a re-creation of Peter Rabbit's home and Mr. McGregor's garden...what fun!

Zoo Atlanta

After Jerid was done working for the day we headed to the zoo. I am so glad we went ahead and purchased the City Passes for our trip. It is so nice to have our tickets ahead of time and has really helped us to plan our days.

Centennial Olympic Park

We are enjoying our time in Atlanta. Today the kids and I walked to Centennial Olympic Park so they could play in the fountains. They had so much fun and no one wanted to leave when it was time!
