Apple Picking

This past weekend was a busy one! Fun, but busy. Lots of family time banked, which I think makes for a pretty awesome weekend.

On Saturday, it started out with Lily's gymnastics class. She absolutely adores it! She is definitely the smallest one there, and she still doesn't know how to jump (although she did jump twice this past Saturday! Yay!), but she is an excellent listener, and is definitely enthusiastic about all the activities. Her favourites are hanging from rings, and running across the tumble track (even though she is supposed to stop at different points and practice her jumps. She prefers tearing down it as fast as she can!). And of course, she loves that she gets a stamp on her foot at the end of the class.

After gymnastics, we had a great potty moment gone bad. Lily told Mike that she had to go pee pee, so he took her into the bathroom at gymnastics to go. He took off her diaper, and it was full, so he figured she had already gone. Wrong! As he was changing her, she proceeded to pee all over her clothes. Lesson learned - even though there are more false alarms than not, always sit Lily on the potty when she claims "pee pee"!

After her nap, we went apple picking at the local apple orchard. Lily loved that she could pull apples right off the trees (though she also loved picking up apples off of the ground and trying to put them in the bags). She spent the time saying "Pick apples! Pick apples!" I think she enjoyed herself.

On Sunday was Lily's swimming lesson, which Mike took her into the water for. Lily loves her swimming lessons, and jumped into the water by herself. Her cousins, Kyle and Emily, have swimming lessons right after her, and she just loves that she gets to see them every Sunday, as well as Aunt Julie and Uncle Scot! Sunday just might be her favourite day of the week.

Sunday night, some friends came over for supper, and I made my first ever homemade apple pie, complete with homemade crust! It turned out delicious! The crust was flaky and the apples were firm and tasty, not mushy.

All in all, great weekend!
