Halloween at the Cider Mill

Hi everyone!

Well, Halloween was a big fun adventure for us this year. We started the day with going to a local Apple Orchard/Petting Zoo/ Cider Mill with the princess and my parents.

We had a lot of fun however, I have to say, I was pretty sad at how downhill this wonderful place has gone. I hadn't been to this Orchard in quite awhile. From what I understand, the original owner passed away. But, we still had a fun afternoon.  Although I really thought they would have had some special things going on for Halloween. I thought I would share some pictures with you.
