But this Saturday may go down in the books. It was perfect. Perfect weather. Good behavior. A picnic. Did I mention good behavior? That can be a deal breaker.
We got up early and started getting ready for Colin's FIRST soccer game of the season. Technically his third but the first got rained out and then we were out of town. Despite the kiddos picking daisies and running around with their shirts over their heads, it was great. But more on that later in another post.
After soccer, we took a very long (but worth it) drive down to Ayres Apple Orchard with the Fabiani's. We joined them for a picnic and then wandered our way up and down the rows of apple trees and picked those of our pleasing. And ate a few. Just to taste test.
It was a great way to kick-off Fall. Maybe even better than diving into a pile of leaves. Actually it was much better than that. No yucky leaves on your clothes and their was a snack involved. Treat!
This will definitely be an annual trip for us. I've already made a batch of apple butter and apple crisp is on the menu for this week.
We ended the night with a little bonfire. Just Chris, Colin, and I. He sat in his mini chair, ate chocolate chip cookies in his mittened hands, and had 'real' conversations with his Mama and Dadda. Perfect ending to a perfect day.
Told you it was going to be cheesy. Seriously, BEST DAY EVER.
