Apple Picking

A few weeks ago we had the opportunity to go camping with our church family.  About 40 of us went and pitched our tents in a gorgeous campground-park only about 10 minutes from Oak Glen. If you have never been to Oak Glen, it is an apple farm community with cute stores, apple picking, an1800's schoolhouse, parks, and a colonial village with re-enactments.  SO much fun! 

We only got to stay 1 night since Martin had to be back for church on Sunday, but we packed a lot in.  It is always nice to camp with other families since the kids have friends to play with, and I think we had a total of about 10 kids that played from sun-up to sun-down.

Here is the gorgeous view from our tent:

On the second day, a few families (including us), drove to Oak Glen and went apple picking and raspberry picking together.  I got a few shots before my camera broke, and I was only able to retrieve these photos due to a file recovery program :(

We are so thankful to be a part of such a great church family, who not only prays together but plays together! :)  The kids from church also go to my kids' school, so we see them all week long. This was a huge answer to prayer for me, as we went for a few years with our kids being the only ones their age in Sunday School. AND they all live close by too!  God has blessed us and we are so thankful.
