We went apple picking and through the corn maze this weekend. It took us 3 times in the maze to get all of the scavenger hunt clues and punches for the prize which turned out to be a jolly rancher. The boys were a little dissapointed but got over it. When we got back home we made 2 apple pies, had to run to the neighbors house to borrow a pie plate as each boy wanted a different crust. One wanted to do the lattice and the other wanted to use the little cookie cutters. So I had one rolling out there crust while the other was peeling, coring and slicing there apples. They both were very excited that they made there own pie all by themselves. I snuck a piece in there lunches today, they sure will be surprised. Hee hee. We also made 9 pints of applesauce. Once it was on the stove the boys dissapeared which was fine because we left for the apple orchard at 10 and by then it was after 5pm so I got alot of kid time in. Made more brownie points with them when I made fish sticks for dinner. They love them, I think there smelly and don't like them so I had an 'adult grilled cheese'. Sat in the sunroom with extreme makeover show on. By the time we finished dinner and a piece of pie, I had a sliver of each as each boy was very excited about there own pie, they had to take showers and it was bed time. I started watching TV in bed and allowed the dog on the bed for the first time. My boyfriend was at the Bears game and spending the night in the city so I felt a little lonely. He was loving it. All spread out all night. But now it's another work week so I better get to it. Happy Monday everyone!

Sounds like you had a busy yet great day with your boys! And it sounds like you picked lots of apples!
I have never been to a corn maze, are they fun? There is one about 2 hours from my town, that I am thinking of contacting and arranging something for my Cub Scout Den to take a trip to.

What self-control! LOL I would have had way more than a sliver of each, I would have felt it my duty to eat at least HALF of each pie. LOL Just kidding, but no kidding, apple pie is my absolute favorite!
