Fall Is Here

I can't think of anything more wonderful in fall than going to an apple farm.
Matt's "homework" this weekend was to go for a walk with his parents and look for squirrels gathering nuts. So, we got talking about going for a walk and fall leaves and such and we ended up driving to an apple farm and walking among the trees.
Matt found straw!
The kids' play area was a fenced in straw pit and he could have spent the day there. We spent quite awhile and I was baffled when many parents refused to let their kids jump in the hay because it is messy.
The hay was much more fun than the apples.

You can see Mike directing Matt to the apples. See the excitement on Matt's face? nope? It was all about the straw.

There was some excitement when Matt got ahold of the camera ...
There was more excitement when we went to the apple store and got to push a special apple cart. And then the maple syrup candy. Wow! Life was good in our 4 year old's world.
And as for Chloe?
She was just her happy, smiley self - watching her big brother and enjoying life.

Somedays I am just grateful for all I have.
