Apple Picking and Oktoberfest
So while we are still wondering when Fall weather will arrive in the Midwest, this morning we participated in one of those quintessential Fall activities - apple picking. A group of us from church headed out to a local orchard and farm to wander through picking (and eating) apples. Emma thought it was great although I don't think she really caught on to what a "ripe" apple looked like. But she ate the green ones she picked, so whatever works.

Then this evening Yorkville held it's first annual Oktoberfest. It had advertised German music, German food, and German beer - so we decided it give it a go. We loaded Emma in the stroller and walked down to the riverfront to end up listening to an 80's cover band, drink Bud lite, and eat brats (but with sauerkraut instead of pickles - hence the German part). But 80's rock anthems work for Emma our "dancing queen" who had a fantastic time running around and meowing (yes, meowing) to the music. In all it was a fun day.

    Great pictures! I went apple picking on the same day (last Saturday) with friends in Stow, Massachusetts. Then afterwards we made apple cider with butter and rum, and baked apple crisp. It's a nice way to celebrate autumn.

Girls begin planning their costumes months prior to the event. If you want to know where you can buy your beautiful prom dresses or bridesmaid dresses, have a look at
