The next fall we had a little addition to our family. Pipsqueak was only 9 months old, but that didn’t stop us. I put her in the boppy seat & away we went.
The following year was even more fun. Both girls were big enough to enjoy hiking around the orchard and pumpkin patch. Pipsqueak carried around the first ‘bapple’ she picked, munching little bite by little bite.
This year it rained. And rained. We finally decided to go on a weeknight after the hubs got home from work. Rushed through dinner & rushed to the orchard with an hour to do our pickin’. We ended up with two big bags of Macs and lots of smiles. It’s only been a few days, but I can’t wait ‘til next year.
Starting family traditions is one of the best things about being a parent - making memories with the precious gifts God has placed in our care. Hopefully my girls will cherish those moments long after they're making ones of their own.
Have you started any new family traditions? Still hold favorite ones from your childhood?
