Apples & a rainstorm
Don't you just love when there are days where life just confirms certain aspects about yourself?
Like take me for instance...I am consistently unprepared.
Ayden had a field trip to the apple orchards in Oak Glen.
On the way up the mountain, the weather changed for the worse.
What we thought was going to be a hot day,
turned into a hurricane.
So here I was with a 10 month old in shorts & a t-shirt, Ayden in jeans (thankfully) but no sweater and Olivia in a sundress.
And me...a dress with gladiator sandals.
(Why can't I just ever throw on jeans & a t-shirt in the morning...why?)
Pretty much we were in trouble.
At this time I praying that there would be a miracle in my trunk and instead of a blown out tire...I'd have 4 warm coats that fit my brood perfectly?
Most of the morning was spent in a garage making apple cider, huddling under a black blanket.
Most of the kids were perfectly wrapped up in warm coats,
while the moms wore fanny packs with perfectly packaged snacks like almonds and banana chips.
Me...I had a half eaten banana bread in my purse.
(Are you seeing a trend here?)
When the rain let up, they could finally pick apples.
I told them that this was there big chance to run and play in the rain!
And they did.
They both ate loads of apples.
And a ton of apple cider.
(Fresh apple cider is amazing).
And when the day was over we climbed into my car and turned the heater on, that I can do!
