Saturday we spend the day running errands, before dropping Brandon off at the train station (more on that later). We had to wake up early that day so that we could take care of everything before 3 :30 pm. By the time we dropped Brandon off, we were all beat from the little sleep and the looong week we had just endured. When I got home, both kids and I pretty much slept the rest of the afternoon. At night, we pulled out the sofabed and watched a family movie and cozied up.
Sunday, we tagged along with my friend Thania's family and went to an Apple Orchard. The kids loved going last year, and were super psyched when I told them we would be going again. The day was nice and cool thanks to the little rain and breeze hurricane Earl brought a couple of days earlier. (and No our area was not affected by the hurricane at all).
Some of our apples. Not only did they have fuji apples, but they also had Granny Smith green apples (which also happen to be Issy's favorite). I prefer the fujis only becuase the green apples are just too dang tart for my liking. We had such a good time, and thanfully Thanias family just us all in, no questions asked. We miss having our family close by and at this point we are happy to be a part of any group of people who are good to us. Issy ran like a wild horse through the orchard. What a beautiful place for a child, and in reality both kids loved every single second of the trip.
Issy has turned in to Mother Goose and loves Jackson so much. I was happy to capture this moment on camera, becuase she is so protective of him. What happened, is that the realized that the grass was taller in some areas and he was having a hard time keeping up with her and the other children. What a sweetheart! This kid has a heart of gold.
Later, Issy played on this old swing. Issy looks absolutely beautiful doesnt she?
Stayed tuned for Part 2.
