Stoney Ridge Farm 2011

Like I said in my previous post, last Saturday we made our annual trip out to Stoney Ridge Farms in Everson. I love going there with the kids each year, usually with my sister and her kids and this year Josh was able to come along too! We rode the hay wagon, ate the most delicious apple pie ever, saw the animals, ate apples right off the tree, got lost in the corn maze, checked out the giant pumpkins, ate pumpkin donuts, kids rode the wagon train, saw lots of friends, ate yummy apple cider donuts and drank lattes made by our church friends, and picked up some kettle corn and fresh apple cider to enjoy at home. (I didn't realize how much eating we did that day, yikes!) Like always we had a blast and we'll keep going back year after year! Here's some cell photos of our day...

I'll get you Murphy...

... and your little "law" too!

Today I was supposed to go to Titus Two, but Josh had to work
I have one Saturday every few month that I schedule something and inevitably Josh will have some opportunity too good to pass up on that Saturday.

Made Cinnamon Rolls for Titus last night & they turned out ok, but the ones I made for the fam this morning were perfect... only difference was the pan I used!
Little tip; unglazed stoneware is not recommended for baking Cinnamon Rolls!

I decided I'll just drop off the Cinnamon Rolls I signed up to bring to Titus, but the truck wouldn't start
(the switch on the amp was left on and drained the battery, don't worry mom, your truck is fine)

Called Mrs. D @ the church and she had Mr. D come and pick up the cinnamon rolls (Yay!)

Tried taking a shower and all the hot water ran out
it's been over 2 hours since Josh took his shower

Had both my contacts roll back behind my eyes at the same time and had to work them back out

So now I'm sitting here, with icicle cold hair, a headache from poking at my eyes trying to retrieve my contacts, the kids are all hopped up on sugary cinnamon rolls and I'm worn out and ready for a do-over day.

Praise the LORD, I get to spend this afternoon/evening visiting with my sister and her family and going to Stoneyridge Farm! So hopefully that will redeem this day from it's horrible start. I'm off to blow a bunch of money, eat junk food and run my kiddos ragged! Hope your Saturday is off to a better start than mine! ;-)
