Apple Picking

Last weekend, we drove to Wickenburg to go apple picking at a family farm. Billy is quite the fan of apples (a-po), so he was pretty excited to see the sheer numbers. (Too bad a lot of them were on the ground).   

 Since I work Saturday mornings, we had to skip naptime, so Billy was pretty tired on the way home. He only slept for about 10 minutes because Jay was able to locate the BBQ restaurant that had catered an event at the city. We had dinner at the Hog Trough Smokehouse. It was pretty good, but really, it just made us miss Rudy's. If you are ever in Texas, look for a Rudy's - you won't be disappointed!

Labor Day in Puerto Penasco

 We were able to go to Rocky Point over the Labor Day holiday (many thanks to Jay's parents for taking us!). It was extremely hot, but still nice to get away from reality for a little while. Billy absolutely loved the beach (no surprise there). We only went early in the morning while Reagan was sleeping because it was just too hot to go later in the day, so no pictures of Reagan playing with (or likely eating) sand. Billy played in the sand and walked all over when the tide was out. He surprised me by sitting in the water almost up to his neck and then waiting for the waves to hit him. Jay was able to take his mind off work for a few days and read a book (a fiction book, mind you, not a political one!). I watched lots of movies with my mother-in-law. Ah, the life.
