Favorite Days.

Sunday, September 25, 2011

Happy, happy Sunday everyone.
We are enjoying a lazy, lazy morning around here.
Still in our pajamas, cartoons, coffee....I love lazy Sundays.

These pictures from this afternoon a few weeks ago is tucked away in my mind under Favorite Days.
Actually it would really be Favorite Moments or Favorite Hours,
 because it wasn't a whole day, but that's okay, it's still a favorite.

These are the rest of the photos from our time in the country; Apple Picking part Two.
Check out the vintage Kodak camera I found at at an antique mall the day we got a little lost.
Remember that?  I think it was worth it just for this camera.
I'm not sure if Charlotte ever realized he wasn't really taking her picture, so she posed away.
I love when I am able to capture the kids like this, so natural...just playing,
exploring, running around, climbing, being silly and just having fun...
you know, no begging or bribing necessary for them to pose or look at me.

Just an hour to roam around my aunt and uncle's land is all I needed to feel refreshed and
at peace-on that day anyway, on that day it was more than enough.
You know, I talk a lot about my dream of living in the country one day and, well...even if I never
 get there I am so thankful to have family with just the place I need to go get away
from it all,  if only for an hour or an afternoon.

Look at Miss Charlotte actually skipping down the lane, I love it.

Anyone else have the urge to visit an apple orchard now?
Or just go play in the country for a while?
 I think a trip to the orchard might be on our agenda for later this week.
Are you doing anything fun today?
Have a wonderful day.
