We had a great day at the apple orchard. If you live in the area where I do and you are looking for a great, family friendly, Christ-centered place to spend the day, you must go to Royal Oak Farm Orchard. It is totally worth the drive. The grounds are beautiful. For $6.50, you can pick five of your own apples, take a hay ride, eat an apple cider donut, watch a movie in a teepee about apples, bees, pollination, and honey, visit a petting zoo, play on the grounds, visit their market and gift shoppe, and drink a half pint of fresh apple cider. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day. The wonderful thing about this particular orchard is that they openly talk about God's creation and they teach the children that it is because of Him and His wonderful ways that the apples can even grow on the trees. They taught us about the cooperation that occurs between the farmers and the bees and how they are such great "workers." If it weren't for the bees, we wouldn't have apples. (This gave me a new appreciation for the bees. : )
Definitely a wonderful place to visit if you ever get the chance.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
