Oh it was such a nice weekend. We were very busy and battling yet another sick bug, but this time, it was just a little cold and it didn’t slow down my child. No way. So we kept on truckin’. Saturday, I had a book club date with some Mama friends. And then we spent the rest of the day hanging out with my parents and siblings. Ellie enjoyed playing with my brother and his girlfriend (one of her favorite people of all time). Sunday, was a big trip though. We have been talking about trees and then moved into apple trees and Johnny Appleseed and on and on. All of this leading up to this day trip to San Luis Obispo to go apple picking with my childhood best friend and her family (who live up there). It’s about a two-hour drive and something we usually do not do with our child who has never liked the car. But there is no where close by the apple pick and I thought we could do it, now that she’s 3 and easier in the car then before. It turned out to be a wonderful day. Both car rides went very well (despite Ellie not taking any nap) and we enjoyed our time immensely at the orchard and then down in Shell Beach where my friends live. The evening ended with the most divine sunset I had ever seen. Certainly a day we will remember.
(I surprised her with the amazing Johnny Appleseed doll. I had been coveting it from Aly Parrot’s etsy store and instagram feed and after a sleepless night, I knew we had to have it. I sewed him up a little apple bag for Ellie to carry him around in (because I knew she’d want to bring him) and surprised her the night before we went to the apple orchard. She’s had him for two days now and has not put him down.

  1. Ellie is just wonderful! And so is her mama. I took Jack apple picking in See Canyon two weeks ago – that is, i tried! No apples!! So we had an apple cider popsicle instead and played on the tractor which was almost as fun. I don’t know how to attach pics otherwise would.

  2. LOVE that johnny appleseed!! and the apple bag to carry him in!! and the little girl carrying both!! (those faces she makes are too cute!) what fun! that sunset too! gah! so many great photos.
