Apples, Good Friends, and Wii

So, the title sums up our weekend! Saturday was all about apples, and Saturday evening and Sunday were all about good friends and playing Wii. Let me explain...
Saturday morning we went with my mom and her 5 year old neighbor to Apple Harvest Day. It is a great annual event where the streets are closed to traffic and lined with vendors of various things. Then, when you get to the end there is a park that is filled with food vendors and kiddie rides. The sun was shining and the day was just gorgeous.

Then we went apple picking at a fun orchard near our house. The apples are so yummy!!! Of course we had to take some silly pictures with the cut - outs! It was fun because my mom could take the pictures as we are usually there just us and no one to take a picture.

Then, in the evening, Laura, Sue, Olivia, and Gracie the dog came up to visit and spend the night. We haven't seen them for a while, so it was nice. I haven't seen them since before my birthday, so they brought up a cake to make for me. Olivia banished me to the dining room and gave me some of her toys to play with while the cake was secretly decorated! :)
We then had TONS of fun playing Wii. Olivia got the hang of it really quickly and surprised us with her coordination. We had most fun racing each other on the Outdoor Adventure game.
It was a great weekend, and we are looking forward to next weekend when we will go camping on Cape Cod. We are going back to the same place we went in June - a beautiful state park. We always go down Columbus Day Weekend as it is the beginning of Women's Week. We go every year with Laura and Sue - this year they are chickening out on the camping though and they are staying in a hotel. We will have lots of fun together, though! P-town is always fun!
Well, that's all for now - I promise to try to be a better blogger.
