an early apple picking trip

I typically refrain from any fall activities until September. Especially since fall started to include the nasty little word "school" in it. Tainting my love of all things fall, that school. But there are some apples that are ripe in August however and they are quite good apples and we must pick them before the kids start school and my only sidekick will be Dominic! We must!

As usual my mom and sister and niece were along for these adventures. We went to Masonic Villages which is just beautiful back there! Especially once those leaves turn which I do always get quite excited about. Okay so maybe I can still love fall. Talk to me next Wednesday when I'm crying into my coffee and we'll see though...

We didn't stay long. Dominic was well on his way to the start of an embarrassing tantrum and the big kids were arguing over the wagon (they'll argue just about anything these days) so I quickly put a few apples in the box before heading back to pay for them... grumbling the entire way about why I even bother...
Dom is going to have to get over his aversion to photos because once these two hooligans are in school he will be all I have in the world during the day!
