Let's begin with the apples!
We were invited to a friend of a friend's house to go apple picking in
their yard. They have 17 apple trees so there was plenty for us to pick.
I wish I had brought my camera, but sadly I didn't even think to bring
I think Evan had the most fun picking apples. He was my apple picker
tool. I held him up to the tree and with both hands he pulled as hard as
he could and reached apples that I couldn't reach otherwise. He was soo
excited when the apple came off into his hands. He picked 3 apples! :)
Alyssa on the other hand was a bit fussy and opted to sit in the
stroller almost the entire time. To each her own. To keep her
entertained I had a brilliant idea. Give her an apple! lol
She sat eating an apple about this size while I was a few feet away
talking with the other moms and picking apples with Evan.
I could see her chowing down on her apple and loving it, but I didn't
realize that she didn't know "HOW" to eat an apple. At one point she
said "bugger mommy" and handed me an apple seed. I have no idea why she
thought the seed looked like a bugger, but whatever, lol. Then I noticed
she had eaten her way through the entire apple, most of the core
included! It was pretty crazy. I took after pictures of what was left of
her apple! She was reluctant to give even this much up!
Here's a close up of the other side of the apple where you can see she
ate most of the core.
While I was taking pictures of this apple, I turn around to find her
putting money in her toes! Luke asked me if I staged these pictures, but
no I really didn't! I have no idea why she thought to do this, but it's
pretty funny. She was cracking herself up too. Hmm I think we might
share the same sense of humor. :)
Oh and Evan has teeth now! It's so hard to get a good picture! Sorry for
the food picture, but my mom has been asking to see pictures. This is a
pretty good one of his bottom two. Actually, in this picture I think
only the left tooth was through the gum. He now has one on the top and
I'm thinking he'll get his other top tooth any day now. I wonder if
he'll eat apples like his sister now that he has teeth!
