Earlier in the week I decided since we were apple orchardy dummies we should enlist the help of some experts. I called on our friends the Siweks. They graciously agreed to show us the ropes.
We arrived to find Tyler and Hayley running through a hedge maze. Elijah quickly joined them. good thing he had on his orange hat or we could still be searching for him. We moved from the maze to the ever allergy friendly hay bales. Apparently, there is nothing more fun than jumping off the top of a hay bale into loose hay. Next it was onto a trailer for a hay ride. We were scoping out the apple choices. Who knew there were so many different types of apples. Rainbow has been holding out on me! After the ride and some taste testing, we were off to pick our favorites. I was a bit shocked when everyone began picking and eating but apparently that is what one does at the apple orchard. We picked and wandered and munched and had a great time.
ps..my new favorite apple is the Sweet 16....or the Liberty.

We took the plunge into solid foods this week. I decided that after two weeks of midnight and 3 am quality time that John must be hungry. I must also have a deliusional memory when it comes to feeding babies. All I remember about Elijah is that he loved cereal and ate it up right away. John, made the most hilarious face when I put the cereal in his mouth and I am certain that more of it ended up on the bib than his tummy but tonight was night four and more of it ended up in his tummy than his bib. Yeah! Now if I could only remember how long he eats cereal before he starts the baby food.
