Hillcrest Orchards & Proclamations of the L Word
As you can see....we had a busy Saturday round these parts. I've been dying to get up to Ellijay for the apple picking festivals. We have tried different orchards in years past but this year I wanted to go back to Hillcrest Orchards, which is by far my favorite. They have so much to do, which is good since it takes us a little over an hour to get there. If you haven't been and are looking to go, it's worth the drive. The cost isn't too expensive either. It's $6 per person to get in. The petting zoo is $3 per person, the pony rides are $5 per child, and the bungee jump is $7 per person. Everything else is included in the entrance fee. I told the girls that we would do the petting zoo & that they could pick between a pony ride or the bungee jump. Hadley, being super impulsive, chose the pony ride and pretty much regretted it after she saw the bungee jump. Of course, after you've ridden a real horse, the pony rides are pretty lame in my opinion. Delaney thoroughly enjoyed the bungee jump. At one point, they hoisted her up super high in the air and the look on her face was one of pained excitement. After this, she asked to be lowered back to the ground. Ha! She may be more like her mother than once thought.
Out of the mouth of babes: Friday afternoon, after we stopped off for ice cream after school, we were driving home when the newest Justin Bieber song came on the radio. The girls got all excited. Hadley stated very loudly over his singing, "Momma, I'm falling in love with Justin Bieber." Oh my. Mr. Alexander will not be thrilled to hear this.
