Apple Picking at the Apple Farm~

Well, apples were our theme field trip this weekend!
(as a child I remember fondly that my grandparents
took me out to an apple farm to pick apples from a
friends of theirs apple farm~ they had the SWEETEST golden
delicious apples I have ever tasted in my 31 yrs of life!
I miss those yummy apples!)
Anywho, I wanted my kids to experience going to a REAL apple
farm and seeing where apples come from!
I think everyone enjoyed this field trip very much and
Hayden even made a new friend at the farm as well!
Running to the apple tree orchard to pick us some apples!
See Huck the Apple Farm dog following behind them! Soo cute!

Looking for some apples in the trees!

Are my cuties not just the most precious creatures to look at!
hee hee ;-)
I was soo excited to find 'Lyza Jane's cute Apple Tree dress
for todays occassion!

'Lyza found an apple!

Picking apples at the apple farm rocks!

We could have taken Huck the apple farm dog home with us!
He was such a loving and friendly dog~
Hayden and him became fast friends!!

'Lyza loved the apples~ Yummy!!

Lots and LOTS of APPLES!!!

Cant wait to go back next year and pick some more apples!
The Apple suckers that they got at the apple farm!
(they were really apple tasting too! Mmmmm)

Mommy made a FRESH Caramel Apple cake with the
apples we picked and bought at the farm!
It was mouth-watering too!!!!
Especially heated up and drizzled with this yummy
Smuckers Caramel sauce on top!!!!

If you are interested in visiting the apple farm
here is the web blog link for more info!
They are just opening this year, so they are in a growing stage
but overall they are a great place to take the kids to learn about APPLES!

Thank-You soo much Mr. Head for letting us enjoy your farm
and helping us get our BIG bag of apples to our car! ha ha
We will be back next year for sure!

~Wicked at TPAC!!!

You must go see the Broadway show~ WICKED!!
It was really funny, entertaining and the talent
was magnificent!! I now have to read the book to get
more of the back drop I missed!
I went to see this awesome show with my mom
and her friend Bill 'Doctor'~ (inside joke)
We were first treated out to dinner by Bill 'Doctor'
at MORTONS in NashVegas!
I had crabcakes and mashed potatoes and they were delicious!!
My mom & Bill had steak and it was very tasty too!
(Thanks Bill 'Doctor' for the nice dinner out before the show!)
Waiting for the show to start was too exciting!
Did I tell you we had the BEST seats smack dab in the middle
of the whole orchestra level...
Dang I'm good locking down seats with ticketmaster!! ha ha
The map of OZ!!
I wanted to take pics during the show soo bad ~
But I was good and refrained from copyrighting material!
They really had great stage sets and bright lights and
amazing effects during the show though that I wish
I could have captured darn it!

You MUST go see this Broadway show!!
It was really well put together and the singing gave me chills at times!
Also I loved the character 'GA-Linda the Good Witch'
she totally reminded me of someone I know very well!!! ha ha
She had me cracking up at all her BLONDE moments!
( I just cant put my finger on it but someone in my early years! hee)

Great SHOW thanks TPAC!!
