We had another moment of warmth over the last few days. It was excellent timing~ the kids were off school on Thursday and Friday and were able to be OUTSIDE a lot. There’s something about this sunny, crisp weather. It’s intoxicating. Friday was the perfect day to go to the apple orchard…so we did!
It wasn’t exactly planned~ we were out to lunch and got a call from our friends, Jonathan and Anna, asking if we wanted to meet at the apple orchard. I was bummed to not have my camera, but this new phone works in a pinch.
While we were taking Greyley’s jacket to the car, we ran into our good friends, the Lynn family! Maiya lived in San Jose for a while when she was a little girl, too, so we go way back. Her family moved back to Minnesota this year. It was a nice surprise.
Indigo REALLY wanted a caramel apple and against our better judgment, we bought him one. He has so many loose teeth, I knew teeth might start flying…but no…he just couldn’t eat it. He tried to bite, but there were too many loose ones. So he just licked the whole thing. That beautiful caramel apple didn’t get one bite!
Greyley fell in love with this beauty.
We hopped on the truck to go pick apples and pumpkins. The hay ride stopped every few minutes and we got off just about every time and then the driver would say, “You might want to wait until the NEXT patch…” It became comical after the 3rd time.
Maiya took this fun picture. The only problem is that she’s not in it!
We are enjoying the apples! They’re extra tart and I can’t stay out of them!
Happy Monday! Skip around the house on one foot…try it!
