This morning we went off to a farm just across the Pennsylvania border that lets people pick apples from their orchard. Every variety (except honeycrisp) is $0.70/lb, which is great for our area of the country, where $0.99 for is the cheapest that the cheaper varities sell for on a good day. We loaded up mostly on Jonagold and Staman apples. The Jonagold variety was extremely juicy, though not as full of flavor as we were hoping--but still not bad, only average. I had never tried a Staman apple before, but I really like them! A little more tart, a little less juicy, but still sweet. Almost like candy.

Here are a few things from summer. I would write more about the summer, but I'm going to go watch a CES fireside now.
I'm not sure what this is, but Madison was pretty please with it.
We went to the Getty nmuseum in Malibu. They had some awesome flowers.
For my b-day we went camping. All of my sisters were present. Clarice was kind enough to let me borrow a flannel shirt.
I also requested a pinata. The best part is just watching people try and hit it.
I'm not sure why I'm sleeping here.
Grammy and G'pa Ames came to visit. They were so lucky to be here and help Tyler move 300 board feet of walnut ($125). At that price it's cheaper for me to use walnut for crafts and paint it than buy pine at Home Depot.
A horse polo match. That was a first for us. It was fun, but I'm not sure how often we would do it in the future. A lot of ritzy people come apparently.
