This day could not have been more perfect. It was the kind of day that all you can do is marvel at a God who can create such beauty. It was warm and breezy and the sky was just magnificent.
Genevieve and Charlotte were just thrilled to run down the rows of apple trees, Genevieve picking apples and Charlotte eating them! Genevieve remembered the technique from last year- three twists and then pull up toward the sky. And just like last year, once Charlotte picked her first apple she was too distracted eating it to pick any more! Christian was happy napping in the sling.
The girls explored the grounds, picking flowers, sugar snap peas and fall raspberries. I gave Genevieve and Charlotte each a basket to put their raspberries in but Charlotte was eating them faster than we could pick them! And then she moved on to Genevieve’s basket and luckily her sister was generous enough to share. I couldn’t help but think of the story “Blueberries for Sal.” I’ll have to read it to Charlotte. I am sure she will be able to relate!
Our day was complete with a visit to Tate’s Bakery. We sat outside and snacked on some delicious butterscotch cookies.
It was a truly beautiful day!
