Latin's Cider Mill

Spring never ceases to amaze me.

We go to Latin's about once a month, at least. In the case of this spring, we have been nearly every week, watching all the babies grow. It is so amazing to watch the baby goats that were just born, then the next week, they will be jumping all over the place in the big pen. And in that same amt of time, the baby chicks will be getting their big feathers, looking like they have been plucked alive, and all of a sudden they are in the laying pen with the other hens, producing eggs.

We have been going there for about 5 years now... watching the babies each spring, and the harvest each fall. This is where I got my eggs before I had chickens, and we always buy their cider... it is the best around.

But of course, the main attraction this time of year, is the babies.

Logan's first time on the ride. Alex even paid for him to go on it (mom was fresh out of quarters). The look on Logan's face was precious, but not as sweet as the proud big brother look on Alex's.

Alex took this picture as we went inside for some hot cider and doughnuts. I brought home enough to share. At only $3.50 a dozen for fresh made doughnut goodness... well, I dont' think I had a choice. ;)
