Last year my MOPS group went to Klackle's Orchard and mom and dad came out to check it out with me, Don, and Rainah. It was a very cold day, and Rainah was only about 10 months old, but we still had fun and it was a really cool place with lots of fun things for the kids to do. So this year when MOPS said that they were going to a different orchard I was kind of bummed out. Then Don was in the hospital for a few days and I didn't get to go with them anyway, so when Don was released we decided to take Rainah back to Klackle's. We went on a Sunday because they do a lot of extra activities on the weekend that they don't do during the week. They didn't open until noon, and we got there at about 11:40 - the line of cars was already huge. We parked and walked over to pay and realized that this might be a mistake as the crowd kept getting bigger. We went in and the first thing Rainah wanted to do was go in the Bounce House- she loves those things. So we let her jump around for awhile, then somehow coaxed her out and went on to some other activities. It was an unusually warm day; around 80 degrees, so it didn't feel very much like a fall activity. There was an elephant and camel giving rides, a petting farm with turtles, a donkey, a llama, lots of bunnies, and pigs. There were also rides on a firetruck, and some enchanted pumpkins. We rode the pumpkins out to a pumpkin field. They said that they didn't have a good crop this year, and they were all really small. Rainah carried one around for awhile but eventually lost interest. Then we walked over to the apple orchard and picked a few apples, then rode a wagon back to the entrance. It was getting uncomfortably hot and the crowd was just insane, so we left around 2:00. Rainah had a good time and fell asleep in the car on the way home. This is such a fun place and hopefully will become a yearly tradition!
