Today I met my daughter in law and grand littles at my CSA farm for a day of apple and pumpkin picking.
We fed all the baby animals.
Climbed on mountains of hay bales.
Took a hay ride up into the orchard and picked apples.
It was glorious.
The girls were silly.
Just like we were once.
And Hannah and Jillian picked their very own pumpkins for Halloween. My only rule was they had to be able to carry their pumpkin of choice their very own self. That was always our rule. They chose wisely. A Nani (and a Poppie) has to have at least one rule.
I didn't think I could do it. TBHITW and I and the kidadults have always made a pilgrimage, every year, to pick apples, eat apple cider donuts and haul pumpkins together. Fall was his favorite time of year.
But I did it. And I had fun. So the tradition continues.
TBHITW would have smiled.
