Our Best Day







Just a quick little something that I have been wanting to share with you. I have been sick for over a week and I still don't feel well, but I miss my blog! I don't know where the rest of the pages are for this mini, just can't find them. So I will get some more photos taken and post them later.
A few weeks ago we took the girls to Calico Ranch, it's a sweet little apple orchard that lets you pick your own apples and pears. What a thrill it was for Emma to pick those tiny apples off the tree. She loved having her daddy lift her up high to reach the ones way up there. Lily was a totally different story. I really don't think she even looked up. She was way too fascinated with the hundreds and hundreds of apples that had fallen to the ground. The more wrinkly and hole ridden they were the most likely they would make it into her little basket. She only wanted the rotten apples! Oh Miss Lily!
We left the the orchard and a delicious lunch at a famous bakery and Emma picked out a pie for her grandparents and the fun did not stop there...we found a fantastic pumpkin patch with a giant barn, baby pigs, calves, a sweet old horse more than my girls could imagine. Emma kept thanking us for the very best day. Guess we need to take her out more!
I used a few of my favorite products for this ....the Maya Road Scroll Binder album and Collage Press Knave of Hearts and Sweet Shoppe paper. For the cover I used my last sheet of the clouds paper, I am for sure going to get a few more sheets of that lovely lovely paper, my favorite of the year.

What an adorable creation and you just can't beat a trip to an apple farm.
