Catching Up

What a hectic week! And it's only going to get worse this coming week. Thursday is the big day. My little guy turns ONE! Saturday is the big party and I haven't even gotten a cake for him. Worst case scenario: I'll bake one myself! It'll probably taste better. So, you won't be hearing much from me this week. Tomorrow, we're buying all the stuff needed for his party including the food I'm going to make.

Alright, enough about that. Labor day weekend was great. We didn't go apple picking on Saturday because of the morning rain. I was upset, but we had a nice time at home. Besides, we left the apple picking for Monday. On Sunday, we went to a BBQ and it was awesome! This was a Cuban style bbq with a whole pig being roasted in a Caja China. I'm not a huge pork person, but I had to have seconds on this bad boy. Wow, was it good! My mouth is watering just thinking about it right now.

Monday did not start out so great. We got lost on our way to Lawrence Farm Orchards. It took us two hours to get there. I got so tired of looking for this place that I almost gave up and then we found it. Let me tell you, I'm glad we did. My only complaint was that it was too damn hot, but the place was gorgeous. Will had a blast looking at all the different fruit they offered. He even walked around with his own pear, which he was licking most of the time.

Here are some pictures:

He didn't last long in this wagon. It wasn't so much that he was bobbling all over the place, which he was, but because he tried climbing out one of the times.

Here he is picking a plum. They were so delicious!

This is the famous pear!

We had a terrific time and can't wait to go back. Cooler weather is definitely a requisite. I can't picture myself doing this in hot weather ever again.
