This past weekend was to include the kids' first fun run at a 5K event that Mike participated in. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate, so only Mike went. We didn't want the kids' first run to be in miserable wintery cold.
We also planned to hit an orchard on Sunday, an activity that in many opinions is only enhanced by a brisk chill in the air. Still, we did change the original plans from going in the morning (weather.com said it would feel like 36 degrees) to the afternoon (almost 50 degrees).
This is the same orchard we have visited every year since Michael and Sophie were babies, one in Mike's hometown.

We should probably work on our selfie smiles.
Sunday also happened to be Mike's birthday (he didn't want a fuss). His parents met us at the orchard, and we all had dinner nearby.
On Monday afternoon the kids and I made apple sauce, and we will snack and snack and snack on apples for quite a while, I suspect. Michael only ate a few bites of his dinner tonight (pasta with meat sauce baked with mozzerella on top--usually a favorite of his) before begging for an apple. We let him indulge!
