Today's New Activity: Apple Picking
So a few months back we went to Gizdich Ranch with Nicole and girls to pick strawberries. But that was strawberry season. Now it's APPLE season :)
We returned to the same super cute spot and let the boys run amok, picking apples from the low-hanging branches, which was many of them and then munching on pie afterward.
For his birthday, my parents gave Monkey a digital camera made for kids, and he had a great time taking 160(!) pictures his very first time out. It was so fascinating to see the world from his perspective! And also so nice that he was using a camera made just for him, so that I no longer have to worry he'll break mine when I let him play with it (no more playing with it!).

Here are some of my favorites of the photos he took:
I'm so excited to see what else he'll capture. He absolutely loved going around clicking and being the one asking other people to say cheese for a change :)
It was a great day all around, but I was just sad to see my family leave town. The days following a visit with family are always a bit lonely for me, but it was nice to have it while we did!
