Lovely Saturday

"Actually a pretty nice little Saturday. We're going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond. I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time!" - Frank, Old School

Today, we went apple picking again. We were running low on apples and needed to stock up. Not only that, but I learned yesterday from looking at the apple farm's website that this weekend was going to be special. Why? Well, they were picking the holy grail of apples: the coveted honeycrisp.

We were there around noon, and the apple farm was busy. It's still a bit warm for true apple picking weather, but how can you resist going out to the farm and picking fresh apples? Especially honeycrisps??

The funny thing was that they just started picking honeycrisps this morning. By the time we got there, many of the trees were already totally picked over. We had to go toward the back of the rows to find apples. So I'm sure that they'll be sold out (picked out? haha) of apples by the end of this weekend. No more honeycrisps to be had, unless you want to pay $2.49+ per lb. at the grocery store. No thanks, there are plenty of other delicious apple varieties.

After that, we headed over to my in-laws to visit with Michael's sister and her family, who drove in from out of town. Little Brendan was adorable as usual. I haven't uploaded the pictures from our visit there (they are on our SLR camera, not the point-and-shoot), but I will update this post with a picture of him when I get the chance. We can't believe how big he is getting.

Everything there was pretty low-key. We just did what we normally do. Just hung out together and chatted. And ate, of course. Lots of eating always involved.

Pretty normal and relaxing Saturday.
