Take a deep breath! Aaaaahhh can't you just smell the cool, crisp air, pies baking in the oven, cider simmering on the stove, soup in the crock pot. Can you hear the rustling of fallen leaves as they scrape along the ground and crunch under feet. You can? Well, lucky you! Because I'm in Tucson and we don't get that here. Though, it has dropped to sweater donning temp in the wee hours of the morning. But by midday it is still in the 90s. But that doesn't stop us from enjoying the slight reprieve from the heat and anticipating much cooler weather that's right around the corner.
We have been visiting Apple Annie's Orchard in Willcox every year since before the kids were even born. It's become a tradition to head to the farm, enjoy the cooler temps that Willcox offers, pick a lot of fruit, drive home and then I spend the day cleaning, chopping,freezing whatever deliciousness we brought home.
This year, because of schedules, I went with the kids by myself. I was a little disheartened, but didn't want to skip the trip just because Jeff couldn't go. So I loaded the kids up &we took the hour& half drive to the orchard. I'm so happy that 99% of the time my girls are amazing in the car. We chat, we sing, they laugh& giggle, and sometimes they fall asleep. They are amazing road trip partners:)
