It may not have yet sprung, but Spring is certainly in the air

Friday the kids and I were at mom's. It was such a nice day, in the 60 degree range I believe. Anyway, we decided to take advantage of the weather and go outside. Sean and Eleanor love the Crab Apple Trees and desperately wanted to pick some apples for a pie. However, we really didn't want them to pick the apples off the trees, so we walked around to see if we could find some that had fallen to the ground.
Sean found one!

So did Eleanor!

It was oh so tempting for Eleanor to reach up and pick an apple off the tree

Eleanor found lots of crab apples and she had to stuff them in her pockets on her jacket because she couldn't keep hold of them all

I guess Eleanor thought we were really going to eat them so she tried a bite. I don't think she cared too much for their bitter taste judging by the look on her face.

Here is a smile after she spit the yucky apple out

Silly faces from Sean and Ellie in front of one of the crab apple trees

It started to get chilly and more windy as the sun started going down, so it was time to put away the toys and go inside. Sean and Eleanor made a train with all the little cars before the moved them back into the garage.

Here is a picture of Eleanor at home all ready for bed in her Dora pj's with a baby hat pulled down tight on top of her head


  1. St. Patrick's Day is coming up! Yea for green!

  2. I really like the pic of Eleanor with her stocking hat on! Cute blog background too. Can't wait to see you in a few days---3 days actually!
