Sunday, we attended the Halloween Party at Gymboree. Olive was a peacock, and Poppy was a bee. I was Woody from Toy Story, and Jill was Jessie. I made Jill dress up. No other adults were dressed up. Sorry, Jill.
Almost a good picture of all of us at once
Even worse, but you can see more of Olive's costume in this one. She also had a tail, but she wouldn't wear it.
The last blog post was about apple picking at Milburn Orchards. About a week prior, we went just to explore and have fun. Here are a few pictures from that outing.
Quick story about this next picture... Poppy was obviously having a great time in the tiny wooden school bus. I climbed in with her, and Olive was in there too. It was a crowded bus that day, as there were 3 other kids and 3 other adults crammed into the 8 seats. Poppy would not let anyone else have a turn as the driver, so I had to physically remove her from the bus kicking and screaming!
We spent the morning at Milburn Orchards in Elkton, MD, with friends. All the trees are dwarf trees so that children can pick their own apples! Of course, Poppy and Olive could not resist tasting every apple in sight.

There is a huge shadow on her, but I couldn't resist!
Keep your hands off my apple!
Look at all those apples!

The end of this video is the best. Poppy says good-bye to her friends.
Boy, am I late on this! Jill's birthday was October 12. Unlike last year, we acknowledged her true age. I made a cake, frosted it, and let the kids decorate it. They had fun tasting all the decorations.
