We made it to Friday! And Friday means we get a few minutes with Mark. He was a good sport and threw some clothes in the washing machine then drove us all out to Cider Hill Apple Farm.
We went straight for the apple cider donuts. We're no dummies.
The word was that the orchards were picked out and the rest had split due to a combination of high heat and tons of rain. We figured we'd take a ride out just for kicks.
The boys tossed around a football around while Meg, Everly and I went in search for a tree that might have something worth picking.
And don't you know....we found one!
We headed home for dinner and Mark decided he would stay through the evening and get up super early to drive to Springfield tomorrow morning. I didn't complain!
I went to the store for some General Conference treats and when I returned McKenzie Clarke was here playing football with the kids in the back yard. Within the hour, the Guenther kids were out there too. It was our turn to babysit so Martin and Mari could have a date night.
It was just what I needed.
Friends. Fresh air. Games. Mark.
