Apple Picking




We kicked off October with some apple picking at one of our favorite places, Baughers in Westminster MD. We brought along one of B’s friends because now that his brother is away at college living the adult life B is suddenly an only child. It’s still kind of strange! Baughers is where we normally go strawberry picking in the Summer but we missed it this year. In the past we’ve even come for pick your own peaches, strawberries, and pumpkins. Just something so enjoyable about “picking your own”. The day was very warm and sunny which made it perfect for their amazing apple cider slushies. I’m not a huge fan of apple juice or cider generally, but in a slushy form I love it, go figure. Now if we could add a few more weekends to the month of October…I want to do ALL the Fall things!!

Mister Eds





During our last road trip of the Summer we decided to stop in Mister Ed’s on our way to Lake Tobias. Shari had never been and there was no way we could just drive by without sharing the fun that is Mister Ed’s.
Part candy shop & part free elephant museum Mister Ed’s has something for everyone. There is a fun outdoor garden area and woods you can walk through. The elephant museum is bigger and better then ever, and they have a really fun selection of candy. Located in Orrtanna, PA (this is between Chambersburg & Gettysburg PA) they are open every day, and worth a stop in your ever find yourself in the area!

Brick Fair 2014




A few weekends ago Katie and I took the boys to BrickFair in Chantilly VA. We went on a Sunday like we did last year, but this year it was even more crowded. They said that on Saturday people actually had to wait over an hour to get in because the building was at max capacity! B loved that there was so much Dr. Who stuff, one of his new interests this year. I brought home a few tiny treasures of my own which you can see in the top photo. Crying baby and lego pringles? yes please!
