This is the place where a distracted mother will muse.

On Sunday we made our annual fall trip to the orchard. It was a beautiful day, perfect for picking apples and enjoying each other's company. There was an added bonus too, when the littlest people fell asleep on the ride home... yay for naps!
We were introduced to a delicious new apple variety (maybe just new to us) called Snow Sweet. Look out Honey Crisp, there's a new kid in town! I think Gavin ate three right there in the orchard. Benett and Ellie had one in each hand the entire time too.
Gobbling up fruit and asking for more is a great habit that I'd like to see more often. Gavin was so smitten with his new treat that he requested an apple to take for his morning snack... he's a granola bar kind of kid, so needless to say, I was very impressed!
