Apple Hill

A couple of weeks ago we went over to an area called Apple Hill, where there are a couple dozen apple orchards to visit and all sorts of fun activities.
I was really hoping to pick our own apples, but sadly, thanks to the California drought, the crops were so small that the self pick places ran out the first weekend.  
We did walk away with a lot of harvested apples (which I turned into applesauce!) and some fun memories of exploring a new area.
Cole snapped this picture of us and the girls which I love!
One place that the best cider and apple cider doughnuts!  

Corn maze.

Next year hopefully we can pick more apples!  But we are grateful for another adventure none the less!

Hanging with our peeps.

We are so blessed, y'all.
My heart has been filled a little more each day visiting with so many precious friends and family.  
I truly cannot believe how many people took time to love on us and spend time with us.  
There are people that we missed and people we forgot to snap a picture with but here are a few pictures from our visit!
We have the best friends!!
First stop Dallas to see the Urichs and eat Chuy's!!

Three co-workers...6 kids later!  
A trip to the zoo with the Ozol crew.
Celebrating Hunter's birthday with green Shipley's Donuts!
  Gotta love kids in jammies!
Not our greatest picture but a fun morning with sweet friends!
Introducing a favorite activity to the Hardins...Dr. Pepper Hour!  
Post dinner race at Torchy's Tacos with Courtney and Lauren.
One of my sweetest friends drove over from College Station to spend the day with us.  The boys were covered in dirt and sweat within 5 minutes!

An evening at our favorite log cabin and ride down to the river with Kim.

Saturday morning donuts, coffee and backyard play with Miller and the Jobsons.
A favorite evening event each night at the Kekics: watching Beginner Bible videos in their special chairs.
 Dinner with the Quorzals, Days and Kekics.  What sweet families who encourage us and support us!
Another zoo trip with Glory and Kelly Tetons, where we also got to see 3 other families too!
Like I said, there were so many more people we saw, we just didn't get the chance to take a picture.
Our friends encouraged us so much and it is always refreshing and special to be with all these sweet families!
