Apple Hill!

This week the girls have fall break from school, but Nathan NEVER gets a fall break from work, so I decided to take the girls up the Sacramento area to visit their Nannie, and Papa, and Aunt Hillary and cousins (Nathan's parents and sister).  We had such a nice trip.  It was a five hour car ride but the girls did great!  No complaining, except for the last hour on the way home for Lucy. While we were there we went to this great place in Placerville called Apple Hill.  It is 10 scenic miles of Apple farms that you can visit, go apple picking, pumpkin picking and get fun crafts and eat delicious food, including the best fresh apple donuts!  This should be an annual fall trip, but I just don't know if I can plan a drive like that again right now...check back with me in a year.

Leaving Nannie's to go to Apple Hill!

Lucy loved posing in front of the little cow!

Maddie on the tire swing-that was a thrill~!

I love this picture and had to use it twice!

Aunt Hillary and Mommy agreed Lucy was in need a little trim.  She is my first straight haired baby and I never had to worry about bangs in the eyes till now.  She sure needed a trim since she will not keep clips in her hair. 

Getting cleaned up after a fun day!  Taking a bath at Nannies is always more fun!

What a fun trip! Good for you to get out of town for awhile, even though Nathan couldn't go. I'm glad the girls were happy in the car.

What a cute Halloween blog background! Looks like you're having fun as always. Your girls seem to grow every time I see pictures. I love the pics of the 3 girls in the tub! That is a big plus of having all girls, right? I miss you and hope things are going well!
