We went apple-picking today, along with everyone else in the world. We hit Tougas Farm in Northborough as is the family tradition. The Toddler had a knock-down, drag-out fight with an apple tree, and judging by the bloody gashes, I think the Toddler lost. A+ for effort, though. Next year, that tree’s going down. We soothed his bruised ego/face with delicious just-popped local kettle corn and vanilla ice cream. Oh yeah, and apples. Lots and lots of apples.
I almost don’t know what we’re going to do with ourselves tomorrow.
