Today we went to Afton Apples in Hastings, Minnesota. It's in the far southeast metro so it took a good hour to get there, but Eva was able to nap both ways. They had a petting zoo, hay rides, jungle gym, live music, face painting, live cider press demonstrations and samples, a "cow" tractor ride, many varieties of apples, corn maze, pumpkin patch, retail store and cafe. We killed a good 3 hours before we even knew it!
What I love most about Eva at this age is she is old enough now to say, "Mommy this fun" or "Mommy I no like this." Today was a "Mommy this fun" day. What more can you ask for?

|Mommy's butt fit in the kiddie ride! Wouldn't have been the case a few months ago :-)|
|Swinging like a big girl!|
|Checking out her face paint|
|Rank and file up the ladder!|
|mmm fresh cider|

|Lounging on the "cowch"|
Note: All of these pictures were taken with my brand new HTC evo 4G phone, which I am obsessed with!
