Yesterday was a beautiful afternoon. It reminded me how much I really like fall. It’s been awhile since we’ve spent time together, but I’ve always been good friends with fall.
We drove out to my parents’ house, and spent the afternoon picking apples. It was one of those times when I had all of the pictures in my head long before my camera ever actually took them.
That can be disappointing sometimes, if things don’t live up to the expectations in the head.
Fortunately for me, much of the afternoon went exactly as I had pictured it.
But pictures can make everything look so perfect, hey?!
Pictures don’t tell you that Anika only picked for about 15 minutes before she wanted to go play.
Pictures also don’t tell you that Kaylia got extremely tired of me picking apples, and whined for me to go inside and play dollhouse with her. (Maybe I should have taken a picture of her crying in the apples. It would have rounded things out a bit!)
Pictures don’t tell you that by tonight, I’ll have cooked so much applesauce,I’ll be wishing I had never seen an apple in my life.
Aw, who wants to know all that stuff, anyway?! I’d rather look at the pictures, and remember the good parts!
Do you have any pictures in your head for this fall? Any memories you’re hoping to make?
