Weekend Recap

We had a fabulous first weekend of Fall! We went from 90 degree temperatures on Thursday to a crisp 60 degrees on Saturday. Saturday morning we woke up and went to breakfast and then headed over to Rich and Tif's to meet them and Tif's parents before heading up north to do some apple picking! We went to All Seasons Apple Orchard in Woodstock. It was a really cute place, we had a lot of fun! Prepare yourself for lots of pictures!

Michael in deep thought, LOL!

We found what we came here for, Jonagold apples!

Michael trying to get the apples down. He looks like he's thinking, "How am I going to get up there?!!!"

We had some trouble getting apples down without an apple picker stick, but luckily Tif's Dad came along and climbed up those apple trees like a monkey!

He would toss the apples down to Michael and Rich

Jacob even got in on the apple picking!

We did lots of tasting to make sure we picked good apples!

We snapped another picture

Jacob even got to ride the cow train with mommy!

We had a great time together at the apple orchard. It was a really fun family outing. I'm looking forward to going to the pumpkin farm together in a few weeks! After apple picking we headed home and just relaxed and watched a movie. We watched the original Wall Street movie since Michael wants to see the newly released sequel Wall Street Money Never Sleeps.After the movie, we crashed for the night.

Today we got up and went to our favorite breakfast spot. After breakfast we headed to the grocery store to pick up groceries for the week. We came home and Michael did a few projects around the house and I did some laundry. In the afternoon we relaxed and watched some football before heading out to Weber Grill to meet Michael's family for dinner. We were celebrating Michael's 28th birthday and Rich and Tif's 5th anniversary.

There are probably 6 different conversations occurring in this photo!

I got some good Auntie Sara and Jacob time in!

Uncle Michael watching Jacob eat his hand, it's very yummy!

He looked so cute in his elephant shirt and stripey socks!

 It's a tough job being this cute!

We had a really yummy meal and had fun just talking with everyone. It was a nice ending to the weekend. After dinner we headed home to just relax and we are watching the season premiere of the Amazing Race! I hope everyone had a great weekend and has a good week ahead!
