Don't know if you realized, but this past Saturday was the most perfect fall day of all fall days. Just chilly enough to look and smell like fall, but warm enough to run all around the apple orchards and pumpkin patches. I mean what else would you do on a fall day. It's New England... all we do is look at pretty leaves, pick apples, wear boots and long sweaters, carve pumpkins, drink wine, bake pumpkin bread, watch football, light candles, drink shipyard with a cinnamon/sugar rim, and cuddle. That's not what you do? oh, you work? shit.
Anywayyyyyy... this past Saturday I was fortunate enough to hang out with small pretty Emma and her parents, and do all of those wonderful fall things. And by those things I mean I chased Emma around the apple orchard and slipped on soggy apples. Who knew it was actually the last weekend to pick apples and 98% of them would be on the ground. I still managed to eat at least 52 apples. Emma is 1/5th my size and I think she ate about 38 apples. It was gross. The Short family just happens to be one of my new favorite families. First of all, they aren't short at all. In fact Steven is like 9 feet tall, and holds his kid like a server holds a tray so she can pick apples from the tallest branches. Second of all, they are really good friends with one of my other favorite families of all time, so by default I'm in love with them. They live in Derry, NH which just happens to be one of the towns I have saved on Realtor.com. They are hilarious, fun, laid back, generous, and kind. They have a three legged dog, he's a tripawd. All three of them are stupid good looking which makes it oh so easy to photograph. Oh... and Emma loves me. Seriously... hand holding, best friend talk, the whole 9. Don't be jealous, Sarah ;) I had such a blast with these three. Here's to a perfect day, perfect family, and a 12 pack of pumpkin beer.
Emma is reaching the only apple still hanging on a tree.

I told Emma to jump on Mommy and Daddy's back. unfortunately for Sarah, she did exactly what i said.
Apple number 28 of the day.
