I'm so lucky to have my family close by me. I'm also lucky we're not dysfunctional. We love each other and get along wonderfully. Sometimes I wish we could spend more times like we did on this day of apple picking. Because we don't do family activities of this magnitude too often, though, they seem all the more sweet.

One things for sure...everything we had as a family is kicked up a notch or two now that Evan is part of us! Enjoy a snapshot of our outing, ending with some poorly captured fireworks in our backyard!
