An Apple-Picking Adventure!

Hi all!

Last weekend, I had the opportunity to reunite with some of my Assistant Director friends from Orientation (I talked about them here).

On Friday night, I went to a bonfire hosted by two ADs, Jess and Alexis, who live off-campus. We roasted marshmallows while we listened to the iTunes Radio country station; Jess is a country music fanatic! Along with the ADs, Jess and Alexis invited a bunch of their other friends to the bonfire, most of whom I did not know. Being at the bonfire was a great reminder of why I love the atmosphere Hope so much: it’s small enough to feel connected to a lot of people, but there are always new people to meet!

The following day, we spent the afternoon at Crane’s Orchards in Fennville. Crane’s offers a corn maze, hayrides, and in-season fruit picking. We went to pick apples and had tons of fun! Take a look!

After picking apples, we went to the Crane’s restaurant, where they have DELICIOUS donuts and cider. If you can’t make it out to Fennville, I recommend that you go to Crane’s in the City in downtown Holland to taste their yummy treats!

I’ve been having so much fun enjoying the beautiful fall weather! What have you been doing? Let me know in a comment or on Twitter!

Talk to you later!
