Patterson's Farm

We took a field trip last Friday to Patterson's Fruit Farm in Chesterland, Ohio.  It was so much fun that I thought I'd share some pics :)

We hopped on a trailer pulled by a tractor to go to the family fun area and orchard.

Going for a ride by the corn fields!

We went on a brief tour to take a closer look at the apple trees and learn about them.  We wanted to pick all the apples while listening but we did a pretty good job containing ourselves. 
Most of the trees had a lot of fruit.  This tree was a rare and special exception.  Can you see why?

After our little tour, we enjoyed a yummy, crunchy gala apple, and my 4yo finally got to taste the apple cider she had been talking about for a week!  Delicious!!

Then, it was time for more FUUUUUNNNNN!  The longest slide ever.....

My boo loves her vehicles!
Fun houses and little buildings to play in.

They spent a long time building forts with the hay bales.  Check this one out....

And, last but certainly not least, we stopped by Patterson's market nearby to purchase some of my favorite donuts in the world.   Patterson's Apple Cider donuts.  A yearly tradition.  I would have taken a picture, but the donuts disappeared too quickly.

A day full of wonderful memories!

Did you see what was unusual about the apple tree? It had blossoms!! The weather has been so fickle that this poor tree thought it was spring again.
