Three of our grandchildren came out this afternoon. The weather was perfect. We went to the garden to pick vegetables to send home with them. Then we played in the yard. If I can get it to load, here is a picture of E with a walnut she found on the ground.
She was telling me that is was brown or dead or something. Look how green the grass is! Can you believe it is the middle of July?
They like to pick up crab apples that fall off the tree, so that was our next activity.
After they picked up most of them, I told them they could eat one. I didn't really think they would, 'cause they are as sour as lemons, but E ate two of them. Her twin brother wasn't so sure, but he ate most of his, too. Don't you like his flower behind his ear? She won't let you do anything with hers, but he loves barettes, etc. Go figure!
I wanted to go back out and take some more photos, but I made an apple pie instead using about 2 cups of crab apples with my other apples. It wasn't the prettiest pie I've ever made 'cause I let the edge get a little bit too brown, but it was one of the tastiest. Yum!
