On Sunday we left Jen & Gabe & drove the 1.5 hours to see Ernie & Ruth.
The kids were very happy to play with each other.
Monday morning Ruth & I took our youngest out on a shopping excursion. Breakfast at Panera, coffee & shopping at Target & a quick stop at Trader Joe's.
When we arrived home the kids were having a glorious time playing outside.
I really love Ruths' home. It's one of my all-time favorites. I really love the coffee nook she's created since the last time I was there.
On Tuesday morning our family went to Milburn Orchards. We love this little place! They have so many fun things & it's so fun going to a big pumpkin patch, so different from the ones around our house.
The kids played in a hay maze, a corn maze, "spider web" (a big rope play ground), "gopher tunnels" (awesome huge tubes underneath a hill). We also visited all of the cute farm animals.
I may've eaten three apple cider doughnuts.
The girls really loved playing with each other. They spent quite a bit of time outside "treasure hunting." These were their hunting clothes.
We stayed with them until Tuesday & left for the rest of our trip after dinner.
