Not since Colin was in utero had we been to Hartland Orchard, but the visit was worth the wait! We had our pick of apples, some cider doughnuts, a tractor ride and lots of treats to make afterwards!
Back to school and back to weekends and weeknights of sports! Colin is keeping busy with baseball and flag football, while Owen is running around the soccer field with his classmates. Here are some early adventures this season…
