Apples taste so good when you eat them on a farm.

Oh boy. Life is busy...but good.
Today was not busy.
Today was just what the doctor ordered.
Today Zachary had an early release day, and David called it quits too.
We loaded up in the car and wandered around all afternoon.
We visited the Red Barn Farm and snacked on apples.
We found a new-to-us park, played and threw rocks in the pond.
We got thirsty and picked up our favorite drinks.
We went to Nebraska Furniture Mart
(largest home furnishing store in North America...hugeness)
and drove the kids all around in the car shaped strollers...
we pretended to look at furniture, but mostly, we were playing bumper cars...
and riding in the glass elevators.
It was a good day.
I love my family.

What a great day!

I still have memories going to an apple orchard in Nebraska when I was little. What great memories you're creating for your kiddos!

Can we come next time? Just a little drive for us.

Nothing feels better than the fresh air of the country.

You are smart parents.

yummmm, crisp apples sound delicious. makes me want some apple crisp. i love spontaneous, no planned days. those seem to make me the happiest. seeing the mounds of pumpkins solidifies the urges i've been having to go buy some pumpkins, especially those white ones. lovely!
