Girls Scout Hike and Campfire

Our Girl Scout troop came over today for a little hike and a campfire. We "hiked" around our lake and had the fire in our fire pit. While on our nature hike, we actually saw a hawk, ducks, and rabbits. After our trip around the lake, we came back to our house and roasted hot dogs, and marshmallows for SMORES. The girls all seemed to have fun and some had never roasted hot dogs or marshmallows over a fire before. Taking a Break to take Notes
Walking the Path...(Notice the Hawk on the top of the tree)

Oak Glen

Autumn has been hiding from us. Sure, we had a couple of cool, rainy days, but the other days have been in the high 90's or higher. We usually go to the pumpkin patches around this time of year. But this year (like a lot of others) it was just too hot. We decided to try and go up the mountain a bit to Oak Glen and the apple orchards. It was a beautiful day, but still a little hot. We spent the afternoon with the Young's and McIntyre's and enjoyed our short apple picking time. We also picked up a fresh baked apple pie and enjoyed some pizza. Savannah is already looking up recipes for making her own apple pie since we picked a lot of Granny Smith apples.
The Red Rome are also delicious.
