Breaking the ground for our Orchard!

What a great Mother's day! I had a wonderful day with all five kids! I woke up to hugs and kisses in bed...followed by Krispy Kreme...followed by my presents (painted terracotta pots, handmade cards with coupons for massages, foot rubs and entire days without fighting and more hugs). We chilled out some of the day and then went to Hidden Valley Fruit Farm and bought the first two trees to start our mini-orchard! You have no idea how exciting this is for me...for us! This is a gift that is not just wonderful and amazing THIS year...but I can imagine us baking pies and apple crisps and making warm applesauce from these two amazing trees for the rest of our lives...for my husband...for our children...for their children. We got a McIntosh Apple Tree and and Empire Apple Tree...YUM!
After we bought the trees we met up with Tiffany for a great lunch. We stopped at the Home Depot to get pots and soil to plant the trees and went home and planted them! After that, we took the left-over dirt to Mark's school to keep working on our garden project...with hopes of putting the plants in the ground this week. What a great experience for Mark's school kids!
Busy, amazing, exciting, wonderful day! That's our life!
