A most fun tradition of my family is cider pressing! Aunt Wendy met us at the Meeker Mansion in Puyallup to do this. We ended up with 6 1/2 gallons of cider! The man in the picture is Alan Manning. He made the cider press himself and sent me the plans to build it. It was soo much fun! Alestair had a great time. He ran around eating apples and getting into things. Aunt Wendy bought him two squishy rubber ducks. So much fun!!!
