Last weekend our church took a trip out of the city to go apple picking. OK, the apple picking wasn't the main point, but it sure was a delightful side note.
We had a fantastic afternoon of great fellowship in amazing weather and also a chance to meet some new people too. This has been an annual event for our church family over the last few years and it was great to see familiar faces and new ones there.
We began by gathering potatoes.
The tractor dug them up from the ground and the kids successfully gathered them for our lunch.

Shortly afterwards, we enjoyed a tractor ride to the apple orchard and did some apple picking. One of our friends is from Hong Kong and she had never ridden on a tractor before!
After picking apples we had some of the fresh pressed cider.
It was SO strong... the boys loved it!
One of the great perks of doing events with our church is that our teammate, Stacey, is an AMAZING photographer and she takes the best pictures. Most of this blog entry are pics from her. Here were some great/fun ones of the boys that she got.
And finally after a long, wonderful day, we took the train home.
Schnellbahn train rides are always a hit with us.
