apple picking!

We had a really fun Saturday this weekend. After sleeping in (We ALL made it to 7:30 - MIRACLE!!), we woke up and just got going! No lollygagging here! We packed up the fam and headed out to the little Danish town about 40 minutes inland - Solvang. I had heard about this one restaurant that was supposed to be excellent - Succulent Cafe - and it was! Ruby, Josh, and I enjoyed homemade biscuits with goodness poured and spread all over them while sipping our coffees and milk, and Eleanor slept (it was no Pine State, but still delish!). The air was super crisp and had a definitely had a little chill to it - perfect fall weather for apple picking!

We arrived at the farm and Ruby immediately got into it. We left with WAY too many apples... but Ruby was so excited and kept saying "Just one more. That's it!" and then "But mama, we could make cookies/cake/muffins with it! One more..." and then "I love you so much" - and when she says that I'd let her pick the whole damn tree if she wanted... :)

Overall a great day!

Happy belated Halloween!

There is nothing cuter than a herd of 2 year olds trick or treating in full head to toe animal costumes. So. Freaking. Cute. This little mouse had the time of her life!!
