Last weekend, we hopped in the car and we drove to the country.
It was a spectacular fall day and we decided that our time would best be spent apple picking.
Or, apple hunting and gathering...
Since most of the low lying fruit was just out of grasp for little hands.
Unless, you happened to have a good reach.
Or, were a good climber.
Or, your father scored an apple picker and was able to pluck all the fruit off the top branches.
We picked a lot of apples.
We ate a lot of apples.
This is how you eat an apple when you have a loose tooth on one side of your mouth that you don't want to disturb.
And this is how you eat an apple when you have an awesome sister.
The next day, we washed all of our apples...
And then set about making our favorite fall dessert.
The kids are at an age where they can help with this activity and it was a great experience to spend an entire afternoon chatting with them while they sliced and placed and sprinkled.
We didn't cook the Crisps, but instead, covered them with tinfoil ...
And then we loaded up our wagon and cruised around the neighborhood dropping them off to our new peeps. It was a fantastic way to spend an afternoon.
And an even better way to meet our new neighbors.
So I guess this is just proof that the real reason my expense reports aren't done...
Is because I'm too busy enjoying the fruit of life.
