Dear Mom,
The children had a holiday yesterday due to Election Day.  Our schools are used for the voting polls so the district doesn't like to mix business with pleasure.
We put on boots and warm clothes and we went to one of my favorite places, Keehner Park.  Keehner Park is the most peaceful place.  We spent 2 1/2 hours walking the creek and saw only one other person.  I always feel like Keehner Park was made just for me.  A Wendy Treasure.  Keehner Park is magical.  My children talk [nicely!] with each other and the help each other!  They climb, explore, dig.  We have caught bull frogs, snakes and salamanders at Keehner Park.  We discovered a baby deer, still too new to leave her nest!!  We found a vine once and we all used it to swing across the creek!  We find fossils and tree branches that look like animals.  It is quite the holiday.

We also stopped at a farm on our way home and bought 10 pounds of Jonathan Apples.  Guess what we had for dinner?!  We all hunkered in and worked to bake my apple crisp (from Governor Orr--remember my yummy recipe?!)!!  We also baked an apple crisp for the neighbor and I suspect warm apple crisp may have been their dinner, too.
Happy beautiful fall holiday!!

Um, Wendy...googling Governor Orr's yummy apple crisp doesn't get me there. If you don't want to part with the recipe, I'll take a care package. :)

What a lovely place!

I'm gonna tell Mom! said...

I agree, I think you need to share the recipe.....

OK, that's it!! This means WAR. I guess I gotta teach your kids bad habits until I get some of these goodies you keep telling about on here. I mean, c'mon... not even a single serving of apple crisp or one of your yummy cookies for pastor appreciation? I am soooooo offended. (You had BETTER NOT take that to heart! You know I'm messing with you. Except for the threat to teach your kids bad habits until I get some goodies, that is. LOL)
