Two doughnuts not nearly enough at Louisburg Cider Mill

The Bishop family took its annual trip to the Louisburg Cider Mill for apple cider and cider doughnuts Saturday. It's a fun place to take the kid for a morning activity -- she can look at the cider-making apparatus and jump around on hay bales. That's really about all it takes for a good time when you're 3 years old.

We love the doughnuts. One is 75 cents, a half-dozen can be had for $3.50, and a full dozen goes for $5.95. There's not much to them, but they're delicious, and I could eat them all day. They're nice and cakey with big cider flavor and a dusting of cinnamon sugar. Every year, we're barely able to resist the temptation of getting more for an impromptu doughnut-off.

Around noon, a bluegrass trio took the stage and started playing Chuck

Berry's "You Never Can Tell" -- better known as the "teenage wedding"

song Vincent Vega and Mia Wallace dance to during the twist contest in Pulp Fiction. The woman singing said they were going to do a set of

nothing but love songs. We thought it would've been cooler if they said

they were going to cover the entire Pulp Fiction soundtrack

bluegrass-style.

Although we had to leave to get the kid home for sweet, blessed naptime,

you could make a whole day of the Louisburg Cider Mill. There's a food

truck with meatier fare, and $8 also gets you into the corn maze and

pumpkin patch, where there's still more to do. (It's free for toddlers

3-and-younger with a paying adult.)

Next Saturday, October 30, there's going to be a scarecrow burning. It's like Burning Man comes to Louisburg!
