Saturday Fun

Due to a last minute change in plans, we had almost an entire Saturday together as a family. This may not sound like much, but this is a rarity around our house. We started our morning eating baked oatmeal, oh so good.
We then went to Crane's Orchard in Fenville and picked apples. The boys LOVED it and really they did most of the work. The trees were small enough that the apples were right at their height. We picked lots and lots of apples, most of which have been made into applesauce. Except for the Honeycrisps. We've been eating those like they might rot before the week is out.

Another rare moment was had on this wonderful day. I went to the grocery store...ALL BY MYSELF!!! And you better believe that I walked around, looking at everything under the sun, nursing my Pumpkin Spice Latte, savoring every sweet moment that no one was asking for pop-tarts and chocolate cereal, whining to say hi to the lobsters for the 17th time, and pulling every cotton-pickin' thing in arms reach off the shelves. It was a small slice of heaven, truly.

For dinner we had some delish quesadillas. Dave decided to test out the organic, poblano peppers that someone gave us. Some of us think medium salsa is spicy enough, some of us need a little more zing in life. Some of us should have stuck with the medium salsa. Just the juice of this baby was enough to cause sweating, faucet nose syndrome, and redness in the neck and face. These unfortunate side effects were slightly delayed in coming but showed their true colors while Will was praying. "Dear Jesus, thank you for...(insert every imaginable person or object that can be seen)". While this is normally so sweet, he tends to go on and on and on and on... Dave couldn't wait for this particular prayer to be done. Don't worry, the following pictures were not taken during the reverent moment of prayer!
On a side note, I don't recommend itching your eye after cutting poblano peppers. This has proven to be quite painful. One eye wash, a few glasses of milk, and many plain tortilla chips solved our poblano problem. How was your weekend? How did you make memories with your family?
