We miss you!
We stopped for burritos on the way there.
Unfortunately, Malcolm's burrito had a little salsa in it when we had asked for none, so he didn't eat anything.
After one or two tantrums because he was hungry, he got very affectionate.
Some of the game was loud!
He was so happy to get some cracker jacks! (I wouldn't normally get him a treat after skipping lunch, but it was a special occasion!)
"This is boring and stupid and I'm never coming here again."
Yet Jane had fun!
Dad is not a sports fan and was just there to help me with both kids, so since Malcolm didn't enjoy it, next year it will just be the girls!
She also loves the playground!
Malcolm still says he doesn't want to go to school, but I think after this visit he's starting to warm up to the idea.
Malcolm wanted to bring this one home.
Could Jane look any happier?
Duncan joined in the fun.
Next we picked apples. This was sort of the whole point of the trip, but Malcolm cried the whole time, so I picked as quickly as I could and didn't take any pictures. He liked the hayride with Duncan and Cassidy afterwards!
Jane made some bird hotels out of board books. She used crocheted drink coasters for their nests!
This picture is from two and a half years ago. You can see she was doing something similar back then!
The kids have been fingerpainting a lot lately. I hadn't bought any supplies until a couple months ago because I was worried about the mess. Now that they finally have it, they love it! We inherited this cool fingerpainting idea book and they've made a lot of the pictures.
Eddie most likely won't be with us too much longer, so keep us in your thoughts.
The theme was "metal" so they used metallic paint. They also made "gold" cuff bracelets and "silver" plates.
We had a picnic lunch and went home in time for me to see the end of the Patriots game. Too bad they lost!
"I'll catch you if you fall!"
This used to be Jane's dress. That color looks cute on both cousins! Reagan was so good the whole day. I don't think I've ever heard that baby cry!
There was a fun tractor at the orchard.
Buying our bags at the apple store.
It's a bit of a walk to get to the apples. This orchard is smaller than some others nearby and didn't have too many apples. But it doesn't have touristy kid attractions so it's never crowded. It was beautiful and peaceful there.
Rosalie doesn't usually eat apples, but she tried this cute one!
Malcolm and Grammy taking a rest after all that walking!
