So yes, this first picture is perfection to me. I could wallpaper my house with this photo and die happy. Do you ever get a shot like that? One that you love above all the others? Then again, I get about one a week with Eleanor. Must be a mom thing. So- this was taken at the end of our day at the Uncle John's Cider Mill a week ago. It was raining so we only stopped to get cider and donuts with the J. Reuben Clark society. Normally there are a lot of fun kid things to do, so, sorry Eleanor. Next year.
Here we are inside overlooking the cider press. It's fun to see the apples getting squished. And the smells reminded me of life back in Manson Washington, where I grew up. Apple sheds and orchards were part of every one's life there. ("Sheds" are actually huge processing buildings.)
Outside we bundled her back up for the cold. Do you love her boots as much as I do? You do? Good. I have the exact same ones! Remember?
