A few more of the photos I took during last Sunday’s apple picking. These are the “arty” ones that didn’t seem to belong in the other post. I’m rather pleased with the way they all came out. And a little hungry now too.

While I was taking snapshots last Sunday, Dom was wielding the video camera. He put together a lovely little video that captures the whole day quite well from a riotous trolley ride (we took up a whole car) to goodbye hugs from the cousins while Bella squeals.
Isabella reads Eric Carle’s classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, to herself, chanting, “Yummy, yummy, yummy,” all the while. I think she gets the gist of it quite well without mommy’s help! Is that last look saying, “Come on, daddy, get the hint. Put down the book and feed me!”?

From Jen at et tu? comes a beautiful story about conversion with an unlikely pharmaceutical metaphor. Here’s an excerpt: All my life I’d always thought that Christianity was a sugar pill. I thought that people swallowed it and then saw whatever they needed or wanted to see to make themselves feel better. But now that […]
Today was the annual family apple picking outing. We went to one of the larger farms in the Boston area. It’s a very family friendly place with trams that take you through the orchards, a petting zoo and playground, a maze and a general store that sells gelato (tell me that isn’t one of the […]
