Johnny Appleseed

Today was the day for our annual trip to Stribling with 4 R's. Yesterday it rained HARD all day long and well into the night so I was surprised the field trip wasn't cancelled, but it ended up being prime fall weather with hardly a cloud in the sky. As a special treat, I got to take just Gavin while Mason stayed at Luke's house and I savored the time with just my middle guy. He caught up with his friend Owen and we picked some Golden Delicious which have fast become my absolute favorite. I never thought I liked green or yellow apples until one year when I tried these on our field trip. Now I don't pick any of the other 13 or so varieties they offer, it's Golden Delicious for our fam! After picking we headed up to the picnic area which is on this hill that overlooks the orchard and the surrounding hills. It was breathtaking today and in a few weeks when the leaves change it will be even more amazing. I could've sat there all day with the breeze blowing and the crisp autumn air finally here. I sure hope it says like this for a while, my boys and I just love to be outside on days like today!
