Yay TJ! and more...

YAY to TJ! He slept from 9:30 last night until 7 this morning!! WOOHOO! Must've been all the fresh air that he (we) got while we were picking apples, pears, and blackberries yesterday. Maple Leaf Orchard is in Spring Valley and is roughly half an hour from here. I found an ad in the paper for them, so we checked it out. They've got all kinds of berries, currants, cherries, apples, pears...oodles of summer yummy's. So, I have a feeling that we'll get to know that place well in the coming years. Here's a link to it: We met a couple there, Steve and Janet, and their son, Ian who is Rugby's age, that were there for the 2nd time in 6 weeks. She also enjoys canning and making jams, etc so we exchanged e-mails so that we can exchange some recipes! YUM!

This weekend we also had a couple of visitors! Steph and Claire came up Friday night and left Saturday afternoon. We had a wonderful visit...kinda lazy as the only thing that we did was walk to Rugby's school to play, but it was really nice! Here's some pix of the weekend....


  1. It looks like you had just a super weekend. How nice that Steph and Claire could come and spend time with you. Looks like the kids were having a good time. TJ really doesn't look all that interested in apple picking . Maybe he will enjoy it more next time. ;>)

  2. Claire is loving seeing these pictures - thanks for the good time!
