Let's see....a few weekends ago, some of us went apple picking at Honey Pot Hill. It was a madhouse. I would recommend you plan to visit NOT on a Saturday, and NOT on a gorgeous weather day. Kurt shared these pictures of the day. While the apple pickers were traipsing through the orchard, a golf crew went golfing. It was J's first time playing 9 holes of golf and he even got a par on one hole! We also found out that Josh and Joanna are expecting a baby--such exciting news!
Last weekend proved that a AAA membership is worth its weight in gold (thanks again, Mom and Dad!) J's car, Old Red, is dead.
The story of his demise includes multiples towings and a seized engine, so I won't go into more detail here. We thank him for the 155,000 good miles we got out of him.
Which of course meant that we needed to buy a new car! We are now the proud owners of a 2007 Toyota Corolla. It will primarily be J's car, since he drives the farthest to get to work and grad school, so we want him in a safe and fuel-efficient car.
We also found out that our new nephew was born this week, Taylor. Taylor was impatient to arrive and meet everyone so he came 2 months early, so keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
