Continued the never-ending painting of the house on Saturday. I know boring old lady. But on Sunday the fun began.
In the morning the girls and I drove up to the East Lemonweir Lutheran Church between Mauston and New Lisbon (abt 97 mins from Madcity) for a lunch celebration of our beloved Uncle Bear and Aunt Marlene's 40th wedding anniversary. Last time I was at that church I was 4 years old and was the flower girl. Love the Norwegian words written over the front door.
Later when we got back to Madcity, Raine and I headed out to Elliot's farm for some apple and pear picking. It was an absolutely gorgeous day. The sky was perfectly blue, everyone was happy eating and picking organic apples and we just enjoyed the beginning of the end of a Wisconsin summer.
Love this photo of Raine. She'd climbed up into the apple tree to get the best apples. And of course, had to take a phone call from a friend. We ended up with about 4-5 bushels of apples and 1 bushel of pears. The Underground Food Collective, where Raine works, should be able to make great apple'y things this week with the bounty.
Love this shadow shot here of Elliot and my legs. See if you can find the apples hidden in the photo.
