apple picking

me: "look how cute the apple orchards are"
julia: "I feel like I'm in a Louisa May Alcott book!"
me: "me too!"
ricky: -shakes head and looks up as if to say "why?"-
lexy: "ricky, i'm feeling Friendly's right about now."
ricky: "agreed!"apple picking was incredibly fun
super tiring, but fun (just ignore the gnats!)
we threw apples, discussed apple baseball,
taste tested apples, and collected lots of yummy apples
and then went home and attempted to bake
which kind of failed, since none of use knew apple pie:
but it still tasted pretty yummy afterwards
and ricky had a microwave apple recipe:
1. peel & core apple
2. in hole put sugar
3. put a piece of butter & cinnamon on top
4. microwave for 5 minutes
oh and yes, we did get into a flour fight

No, no, no! I have wanted to go apple picking for years, but there are virtually no orchards in Southern California that I can find. I have a dream of going apple picking with a cute boy - I think it would make for the most romantic date! I'm so glad you had a good time - that pie looks delicious; and the flour fight? Love! :)
