Last Saturday was a beautiful day. The perfect day for a trip westward to Carter’s Mountain Orchard in Charlottesville. We weren’t the only ones that thought so; it felt like half the state of Virginia was there with us!
While we drove up ourselves, we weren’t going alone. We met our Sunday School class and the Master’s Hand Story One (ASL class) for a picnic and some fellowship amongst the crowds.
The large crowds also meant the trees – especially in the Fuji grove – were more than a little picked over. Finding a great apple for her teacher was Kaitlyn’s quest, and when she found one that fit her specifications she was ecstatic. Of course, it took her and Keith climbing a tree to get to it, but that’s definitely part of the fun of apple picking!
Here are a few more pictures from our fun day:
