Apple Picking Time!!

I took the kids apple picking today, along w/my mom & sister & her family.
It was a great day for it!
Not too hot or too cold!
Here are some pics from our day.

My mom w/all the kiddos....

Rylan loving the apples!

Braedon so proud of all the apples he picked!

Think we picked enough apples?
Yeah, $40 bucks later....
Oh well, as long as my kids had fun, which they did!

Now I gotta figure out what to do w/all these apples!
Need to start cooking & baking some stuff.....

Hope you all have a great rest of the weekend!

Braedon Turns 5!


Braedon Patrick Melle
b. 9/12/06
@ 7:44 p.m.
7 lbs. even

My first born son, you will always have a special place in my heart!
Still a mommy's boy.
Love's to cuddle.
Always has a smile!

Loves going to Grandma's camper in the summer.
He used to be afraid of the pool, but this year he totally did a 360 & decided he loved it!

Loves to dance & sing.
He took pre-ballet/tumble class last year & loved it!
So, this year he is doing tumble again but is also going to try tap.

Loves the park, would live across the street at our park if I let him!

Is absolutely a little computer genius, well I think so anyway!
His sister's started teaching him how to use the computer @ about 2 1/2 & has been hooked since.
Now he is starting to try & teach Rylan how to use it!

And here he is this morning opening a couple things we got him to hold him over because were not having his party until the 25th.
A new bike helmet w/matching bell.

Which of course he loved because it was Toy Story.

And a Bed Bugs game.

He was so happy to be 5 today!
It is bittersweet for me....

He brought a big ole M&M brownie cake to school w/him today,
he couldn't wait to get there to share it w/all his new friends!

Tonight after we got home from all our dance classes & ate dinner,
I put 5 candles in a piece of brownie & we sang Happy Birthday.

All in all he had a good day!

Now on to planning his big partay!
