Only an hour west of Washington puts one in apple picking country.  Macintosh, Fuji, you name it – they grow it… and you can pick it yourself.  The kids had a great time wandering through the orchard and picking out tonight’s dessert (fresh apple pie!).

I suspect this fall is filled with firsts of many – we will definitely go berry & apple picking again, year after year!


fall firehouses & farms

13 10 2008

Each October, our local firehouses hold an open house as part of fire prevention month festivities.  Peter is a HUGE firetruck fan, so it was a must-do activity this weekend.  Area farms also hold fall festivals and Halloween pumpkin patches.   We were joined at a farm by Peter’s preschool classmate Matthew & his mom.  The boys & Emma had a great time running around, seeing farm animals & playing in the hay maze.

can you say overdub? nice try.
