Apple Picking 2010

0 notes

Sam and I spent election day out of school and in the apple orchard.  We traveled to Windy Hill Orchard with special friends and had a wonderful day!

All Sam wanted to do was pick apples so he was less than thrilled about the apple press demonstration…or the hayride…until he saw apples on the trees.  Then he was soooo excited!  And it didn’t even matter that he didn’t actually get to pick them (we '”picked” apples from a big box"), he was just satisfied to have seen them in their natural habitat!  Oh, and to chase chickens around!

Hall of Fame-er

I love going home and spending time with my family.  Especially now that my Uncle “Bug” has moved back home.  He’s an award winning professional photographer.  You know, exactly what I want to be when I grow up!  Recently, he was inducted into the East Coast Surfing Hall of Fame (look under “media”) in recognition of his contribution to surfing through photography.  I mention this because when I visit my family, and Uncle Bug, he usually surprises me a few weeks later with treats like these:

IMG_3725IMG_3724These two pictures are now included in “Mama’s Hall of Fame All-Time Favorite Photos!”  Thanks so much, Uncle Bug, for always capturing Sam just as I see him and helping me hold onto his character and personality forever through your art.  I love you.  And I promise that one day I’ll learn how to use all those fancy buttons on my fancy camera and hopefully make you proud!

UPDATE:  Uncle Bug just sent this one to me and I just had to add it…because like I said, he always captures “my” Sam beautifully!

Even though we made it to THREE Fall carnivals this year, Sam’s favorite part of Halloween 2010 was passing out candy to all the other kids!  Man, I love this kid!!  (And I’m also loving this picture of my husband!)
