I'm gonna have to say that apples are probably my favorite fruit. Granny Smiths, to be specific. This summer Brent and I have been involved in apple harvest/processing on several occasions. In early August, we were at my parents' house one weekend when we realized that the apples were ready earlier than normal. So...we got all the necessary supplies to make 19 (approximately) pies and a wholllllllllllle lot of applesauce.

Yesterday was my 22nd birthday!...and my dad's 51st! Also, the 16th was Karl's 20th. So it was a week full of birthdays! We went home Friday night and had a birthday supper with my family in a little fancy Italian restaurant in downtown Red Deer. Saturday we went canoeing with Steve and Cindy on the Red Deer River. It was a hot beautiful day and a really fun time hanging out with them! Saturday night (after a massive thunderstorm/downpour) we went and practiced the music for Steve and Cindy's wedding. Sunday we went to Meadowbrook church--which was really neat to go back--and then spent a little more time with my family before coming back, spending a relaxing afternoon reading and then went out for supper with Brent's family. After supper Brent and I went for a walk with his brother and sister-in-law and their endearing little puppy! I am so blessed with my two families! This morning Brent took me out for coffee to our favorite coffee place, "Coffee & S'cream". So it was a lovely birthday!
