First day of school

Apple Picking!

Today we went to Carter Mountain to go apple picking. We missed a few key things:

1. We were in the mountains. It was chilly.
2. It has been raining for the past two weeks. There was mud. So much mud.
3. When there's mud and rain, it's slippery.
4. We had a rough summer with rain and heat.

Needless to say, the apples were okay (not amazing) and had marks from the "hail" this summer. I also slipped and fell down the hill. Yup - right down the muddy hill. Thankfully, I didn't hit my head, but I was covered in mud. We ended up stopping at Target so I could buy new pants (and baby wipes to clean myself up).

But, we also went to lunch, the Green Valley Book Fair and the Shenandoah Heritage Market. It was a long day, but a fun one.
