Thank You Mr. Columbus and Apple Picking!

 I am enjoying my day off  thanks to Mr. Columbus. Thought I would take some time to post pics of my Little Monsters apple picking. Now that they are moving around like crazy, it's actually a little easier to take them places. Yesterday we went to the NY Aquarium and they LOVED running around-as for the fish and other marine life,they weren't all that into it! hahaha

Our Little Monkey, Grace, Climbing Away!
We could have just spent the day in the pumpkin patch-they
didn't want to leave. My monsters threw their first
public tantrum! We just laughed while everyone else
stared! hahaha too funny!!

First day with my new Firsties!

First day with my new firsties...all 23 !!!! It was a great day, but I forgot how tiring the first week is. Over all, it was a great day. We made "Jitter Juice" and talked about what gave us the jitters. The kids loved it, but I heard them saying it was just fruit punch with soda...hahaha  SMART little firsties!
