Just talking

Yesterday was AWESOME. The fire house trip was a huge success. It was amazing really. There was lots of free food - cookies, fresh baked pretzels, ice cream, hot dogs, hot coco, and juice boxes. The kids were in hog heaven. There was also a big bounce house, rides on the fire truck, plastic fireman hats, and a visit from smokey the bear. This event did not occur in my tiny cash strapped town. No, it was held in a fancy schmancy town about 10 minutes from my house. I have to say, those rich people really know how to throw a fire prevention party. SO MUCH FUN!

Anyways, today we are attempting to go apple picking one last time. I know that we already went apple picking, but I wanted to go one more time before the season is over. Since we were rained out last week, we are going to go today. I think I am the only one even remotely interested in this activity. I told the kids that we were going apple picking again, and Izzy started whining to go to Target instead. Porgie said she wanted to watch TV. My kids are such typical Americans.

After our crazy busy week, I think I am just going to stay home this weekend. I need some time to rest and relax.

I need to check where we have apple picking. I want to go. But I want that rest way more. My husband decided on traveling this weekend. I am still torn on whether I will or not or take a much needed jammy/cleaning day.

I hope you got the kids out to do the apple picking again. I got to go with Claire twice in the last month for field trips and loved it!
