Apple Mania

 We continued our fun fall festivities today by going to pick apples at MacQueen's with Papa Larry and Grandma.  Mikayla (many many times) demonstrated the correct "twist and pull" technique the kiddos learned on Noah's field trip to the orchard last year.  It was so cute to hear her every time say, very carefully "twist and pull".  We picked about a 1/2 bushel of mostly jonathans (they were almost completely out of golden delicious even though picking only started on Monday, darn) and they are already calling my name to turn into pies and other yummy goodness.

Then lunch at Wendy's, a quick stop at Big Papa's for Grant to help get the new mower running, a stop by my favorite farmer's market, Monnette's, a trip to Anderson's for some of their fabulous Fall flavored coffee and then home again to just catch the end of the Tigers game - another win!  Rumor has it that there might be smores in the future tonight, we'll see ;-)
