Had a great family time at Hope Orchards picking apples and then playing at True Park across the street. When we got to the orchard, Makana and Kanoa ran!! They were So excited to get to where we could pick and then so excited to find apples that they thought were good ones. Makana's bag broke and she put them in my bag and then decided to use her shirt to collect some more. Jim and I sampled one each right off the tree and they were tart, yet delicious. We bought one gallon of cider and some dehydrated apples as well. (To make them at home - 175 degrees for 8 hours in a dehydrator with some sugar to crisp them and some cinnamon for taste - hoping to try that sometime!) We played lots at the playground and then even found a ball in the woods to use on the basketball courts and kicked it around or tried to make some baskets. It was such a nice time together! The kind of day when we might think back and remember and get that good feeling inside about the moments shared on that cloudy day we went apple picking and played at the park.
