A visit to Oak Glen...

 Yesterday we drove up to Oak Glen for some apples and a visit with my aunt, and cousins. Oak Glen is an apple orchard community about 30 minutes north east of my house...it's a charming little community right up against the mountains...the day started out like this...a bit on the cold and gloomy side....
 The sun tried to break through most of the day...but couldn't quite make it through...
 We started the afternoon with a bite to eat and a visit to the petting zoo...


 Cassie made a friend!
 We walked around a bit...lots to see...

 Of course you have to visit the bakery...

 And no trip is complete without a visit to the candy shop...



 Sweets for a sweet...
 Sorry Debbie...I couldn't resist...
 These two cousins got on marvelously...
 Mattie said he wished Stella was his sister...so cute!
 And no trip is complete without apple pie and ice cream!
 Stella and I went to check out the remains of an old apple cart...
 While Chrissy and Cassie...
 Chelsey and Aunt Honey relaxed with their pie...
 Some little friends up in the tree were there too...
And by the time it was time to leave...it looked like this!
Thanks everyone for a nice relaxing day...even though I ate way too much!!
Until next time...enjoy your day!!!

Showing this many calorie laden yummy foods to me this early in the am is just cruel. Still down with cough and no food in the house. Now I'm starving so I have to drag my butt to the store. NO FAIR! :D

That kissin cousin pic is adorable.
