Apple Hill time

Last Thursday Carol and I took our girls to Apple Hill. Those of you who live here know ~why~ we picked Thursday.........for those of you who don't traffic is a nightmare on the weekend. We started off the day with an apple doughnut from Able's Acres then went to Plubells and spent most of the morning there. We walked the nature trail, fed the animals, tried out the tire swing, picked out pumpkins and they all got their faces painted. On the way home we went to O'Hallorans for apples and apple butter. All four of the girls had a wonderful time.

Family time

Last Thursday began a long weekend of loads of family time and tons of eating..... Thursday night we made homemade Chinese- egg rolls, beef and broccoli, sweet and sour, egg drop soup and rice. Friday all of us minus Loran and Lissa got together for homemade pizza (an Anderson tradition for Friday nights), and Saturday we all had burgers and brats on the grill. Sunday we were minus Derek's family and after our usual roast beef dinner the twins and I took Lane back to the Sacramento airport. It was so good to be able to have Lane home but the time flew.
