an autumn post: some recent adventuring,
We've done a number of exciting things lately, including apple picking at an orchard south of Ottawa, where the girls ran around wearing matching jean jackets, and Christine became frustrated at my efficiency (apparently I "missed the point" of apple picking), gathering fifty pounds of apples in less than fifteen minutes. Given we were not that far from the homestead, I suggested: why not take some to my father?
We ended up on the farm, where we had a good visit with my father. When my sister caught wind we were there, she invited us all over for dinner (we also left her a bag of apples).
Otherwise, both children enjoyed the day. There was a bouncy area that Rose spent far too much time on, and Aoife and I wandered the other play structures, including a pirate ship.
