Apple Picking in New Paltz

This is Shayna. Mom asked me to write a little something about the family's trip down to New Paltz this past Saturday. It was family weekend here at my school and I asked Mom to bring the kids down to spend the day with me (Dad had to work).
They arrived around noon and we headed to a small, privately owned cafe at the Water Street Market in down town. After a healthy lunch outside, we decided to go apple picking. Jack and Mac had a lot of fun (reguardless of the bees) and I had so much fun spending time with them.

A little later, we headed over to the mall in Poughkeepsie for a really yummy dinner at Ruby Tuesdays (one of my favorite chains) and mom picked up some things from Target for me.
It was a really fun day and I was so glad the kids could come down, but it kind of sucked that I didn't really get to spend any quality time with mom. Sooooo... Mom is coming back down with out any kids this coming Sunday with Ryder (one of mom's best friends) and we will all meet up with LC (another bff) and go for a hike for Ryder's birthday! Hopefully I'll be able to have some quality time with them all!
Thanks for tolerating my intrusion on mom's blog.

Not an intrusion at all I love to hear what is going on in your life. Maybe you should start your own blog.

Lots of love always
