The smell of baking apples is one of my favorite.
While we were at it, we whipped up a batch of cookies and some loaves of bread.
So, I get so mad at myself when I forget to get the pictures that really matter - like Jason's face! Here he is with the child herd setting out on a hike to the beaver dam that is now all dried up. It was a large, thriving beaver dam when we moved in about eight years ago.
Elijah was pretty excited to be included on the big kid adventure. He suggested to Jason that they call it the beaver jam instead of the beaver dam.
Tomorrow Alei and I are running The Color Run 5K in Washington DC. Before you are even remotely impressed, please know that neither of us have ever run three miles in our life! I have run two miles a few times now, so I'm hoping to push myself through it. It will be an adventure either way. There are six of us going that are all running, so I don't know how we will even get any pictures; which is a shame because the idea of The Color Run is that they throw colors on you as you run. (Who comes up with this stuff...and who pays to participate?)
