Weber’s Cider Mill Farm

Saturday morning we all got up and headed out to do some apple and peach picking. We went last year for the first time and enjoyed it so much that we knew we wanted to do it again this year. The skies were a bit overcast but it was nice out and it never rained. It cleared up in the afternoon and turned into a beautiful albeit hot day.

Harper requested I take his picture by these giant tires. :)

Once we had all the apples and peaches we could carry we paid (8 pounds apples, 7 pounds peaches $24 total) and headed to the Johnny Appleseed festival that was just down the road. The first order of business was lunch. There were cheeseburgers (not very good) sausages (not that good either) hot dogs (okay for a hot dog) and fries as well as other offerings. The food wasn’t disgusting but they sure could do a little better. While Tony and Landon ordered everything, Harper, Dakota and I wandered around a bit before finding a table.

After eating it was time to have some fun!

I missed Dakota and Tony coming down the slide because just as I was about to take a picture a little boy ran right in front of them and I thought for sure they were going to take him out. That little boy got lucky though and made it by just in time.

Harper was too excited about the hay bale maze to go down the slide again so we all headed to the maze. I wasn’t feeling so good for some reason though and I ended up finding some shade to sit in while they explored the maze. I wish I’d have gotten better pictures because they sure had fun in there.

This picture cracks me up! Landon’s head sticking out of the top just looks funny!

When they’d finally had enough of the maze the boys did the duck races and Dakota climbed on the tire mountain.

Next up was the tractor ride:

Landon’s just a wee bit too big for the tractor ride so he took a break on the tire mountain…

The kids spotted the little goats and headed that way while I took the opportunity to go inside and sit awhile. I still wasn’t feeling great and the heat wasn’t helping at all. So, I handed the camera to Tony and went in.

Here’s some of the pictures he took:

We bought some apple cider donuts (delicious) an apple pie, some apple cider (I liked it!) and a couple squares of crumb cake. Harper couldn’t wait another minute to eat a peach, so he had one on the drive home.

It was a great day and I imagine we’ll be back again next year!
