Well, last week our orchard trip was rained out, but the weather was perfect today. My Junior League committee took a group of 16 kids to Orchard Hill Farm for a hay ride, pumpkin picking, petting zoo, corn maze, bonfire, donuts and cider. They rode over on the Grand Rapids Trolley, which was a treat in itself. Some of the kids had "been to an orchard before." So maybe they weren't all that impressed. But I think I saw at least one smile out of each of them.
I was grouped with three little boys, who were quite charming...well except for when one tried to shoplift a turtle puppet!
Anyway, these boys just zipped through the corn maze without any difficulty. I told them I'd go with them the second time, seeing as how they did it without getting lost. Once we got in there, they started to run and leave me in the dust. I shouted "Hey, don't leave me in here. I'll get lost." So one little boy slowed down to my side and said, "Don't worry. I'll walk with you." How precious!
