Adventures in Apple Picking

Last weekend was so much fun.  We loaded up on Sabbath morning, along with our "manny"(Kenneth) and joined the caravan (the other Murrill's, the Nudd's and the Brown's) headed to Wisconsin for apple picking.

I have never been anything picking so this was an exciting day for me.  The little farm was incredible.  They had fresh homemade donuts, cheese curds, fresh apple cider and so much more.  They even had a little petting zoo with sheep, goats and turkeys.  We picked honeycrisp apples, which are absolutely amazing.  It was so fun.  Here are a few pics from the adventure.  They are 100% stolen from Melissa.  We totally forgot our camera.

On Saturday night we went putt-putting with the Meharry's.  It's always fun to get two 1 year olds together way passed their bedtime.:)  Then we went home and I crashed on the couch.  I was so tired.  Mark ended up going and playing tennis with Mike...where does his energy come from?

On Sunday we went with Mike, Melissa and fam to the Corn Fest in Hinsdale at Graue Mill.  It was so fun.  We had a long walk on the trail and stopped at the nature center for quite a while.  Later that night everyone came over to our house to grill.  It was yummy, but an unfortunate incident happened.  Monroe fell off of my chair and hit her head really hard on the ground.  I felt horrible.  It was on the rug, but it still had the loudest crash.  I don't think there is anything worse then seeing your baby hurt.  Ugh! 

Here are some pics from the Corn Fest:

Here are some of the pics that we had taken when we were in Tulsa.  We were sad that Scott and the kids couldn't be there.
