A Tale of Two Orchards and One Birthday

Asher turned 3 on Sunday. Yes, it's true, my last baby is officially 3 years old. Where the past 3 years have gone, I couldn't tell ya, but I do know that's it's been a great 3 years. After church and a visit to the church library to check out some movies for the week, we headed to Romeo to meet up with some family at Stoney Creek Cider Mill. My sister Dana, her husband Kurt and my niece Payton came. Best of all though, was that I got to spend some time with my aunt and cousins that I don't get to see nearly as often as I want to. My Aunt Janice, cousin Jeff, cousin Ashley, her daughter Brianna and Ashley's boyfriend Andy all came out for the day. Asher was sure to walk up to everyone several times and say "It's my birthday! I'm 3!", it was really cute. We got some donuts and cider (that was quite possibly the best cider I've ever had) and Asher opened his presents. When we were finished with all that, we headed up the road to Miller's Big Red to go to the petting zoo. The kids had a great time there and we even got hailed on. The weather was quited interesting that day, though overall great! We had such a great day spending time together and the kids were thoroughly enjoying themselves. We had some hot cider there and then Aunt Janice gave the kids a ride on one of the carts they have there. It was a fun ending to a fun day. Asher passed out in the car on the way back from the orchard and had a nice little nap before we got to my Mom and Dad's house where my sister Delyn and her fiance Jason were. We had dinner there with all of them and got to meet my Mom and Dad's new little dog (she's a miniature pinscher named Miya). Then we headed home to get the kids ready for bed and ready for the new week to start. It was such a great day. We got to spend time with a bunch of people we really love and Asher seemed to be satisfied with his birthday day experience. God is so good.

Here are some pictures from the day!

A picture I took of an emu at the petting zoo. I'm pretty sure National Geographic should hire me.

I love this picture I got of Asher.

Off they go! Oh, and holla at your boy, Gavin. LOL
