What Should I Do With All These Apples??

We made our annual trip to Mercier Orchards over the weekend. It is about an hour drive from our house and we look forward to it every year! We go with a few other families and it has kind of become a tradition. This year was a bit different as we were missing one of our favorite families and because for the first time ever, it rained on us! Don't worry, we smiled through the soaking wet denim and totally gross wet orchard smells. :)

We picked Fuji, Cameo, and a few other kinds before the bottom fell out. My favorites...golden delicious were no longer available for picking. I cried a little....then I had a tall glass of cherry apple cider and all was right in the world! 
 If you can't beat him, join him! Silly faces!
We filled two bags and our bellies with delicious, fresh apples!
So....what should I do with them this year?

What We're Reading Sunday

Here's what we are reading this week around the S household! 
Every family should read this book. It's the story of Wilma Rudolph who was paralyzed by polio as a child. She vowed to one day not only walk, but run. She did, too. She ran all the way to the Olympics. LOVE this book and the beautiful artwork. 
T and I also read a classic, The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything. There is nothing better than acting that one out at bedtime! 

I'm also kind of loving how he into the biography thing right now. He said he "just wants to know more and more about some people." Swoon. He chose this Acorn First Biography about Abraham Lincoln. We knew most of the information from previous reads, but we still really enjoyed the pictures. 

What are you reading??
