An Apple A Day
Today ended badly……really badly. It was one of those days that went down in a flaming glory of tears and yelling. After much crying (by them) and much yelling (by all of us), we hugged and decided that tomorrow would be better and that we were all sorry! So instead of telling you all about that…..I will share all the fun we had yesterday. (It was a better day).
Yesterday, our friend invited us to go to the local apple orchard for s festival they have there! It was wonderful! The weather was cool, but not freezing and it wasn’t raining! There was fair food, rides, ponies, and apple picking! But the coolest thing there (in my opinion) were the camels you could ride! Yes….read it again…..camel rides! AWESOME! All in all it was just a fun family day…..and those are the best kind right? Plus we did pick a very large half bushel of apples too…..there will be lots of yummy thing made from those! Here are some pictures of out fun (a very real happily ever after moment)

It looks like you guys had a great time. I have to remember to take my kids apple picking before it gets too cold. I loved this:
“we hugged and decided that tomorrow would be better and that we were all sorry!” I tend to forget to apologize when I get upset and yell at my kids. They are the ones getting me all mad, but I can’t expect them to learn how to control themselves, if I can’t control myself. We have taught my son (3.5 y/o) to breath when he is upset and crying. We also taught my daughter how to step aside when she is becoming angry; but I still need to learn some strategy to not yell at them. Any tips will be greatly appreciated!
