Fall Flings






We've loved sharing our beautiful New England fall with Luke's mom during her visit. Our best day so far was a morning spent hunting down an apple variety that I had tried at church. It ended up only being sold at a farm stand thirty minutes north of us. Anyone else tried a Mutsu? A cross between a Golden Delicious and a Granny Smith - soooo goood! We followed my pilgrimage with a trip to a pick-your-own orchard so that Laurel could see where apples really come from. And this girl loves her apples! She was given a free apple at our first stop and she munched it all the way through to our next destination, then kept asking for more apples to eat.
Oh, my little girl is getting so big!! So many words and sentences and enthusiasm - being a parent is such fun!
