In taking advantage of Matt's government furlough, we visited an orchard and cider mill yesterday. It was a different locale than our excursion two years ago, but we found this new site to be just as fun and perhaps even more family-friendly.
Our little outing was perfect and magical. It is an incredible feeling to rediscover the world through the eyes of your own child. There is such a sweetness to it--feeling the innocence and purest joy return as you relive your own childhood in some ways.
It gets me giddy with anticipation for the next years when Makenna is a bit older and really comes to grasp all the wonders of the world! I am never itching for her to grow older, but I can't help but be excited for all the special memories to be made.
And here is peek at Makenna's first Fall adventure:
|Hasn't noticed Matt's donut yet...|
|....oh but then she really wanted some. Sorry, Makenna, you're too little this year!|
|First Wagon Ride|
On to the next adventure.
