We went apple picking again but this time in NJ! We went to Demarest Farms in Hillsdale, NJ with Claire and Liz. The girls had a really good time playing with sticks and rocks --but also enjoyed picking the apples--I think. Amanda was a little scared about going on the hayride but once on it--loved it. Abbey loves eating the apples and taking them out of my bag--sneaky kid. The place was mobbed. We ran into Andrew again--two days in a row except this time he was with his parents: Tricia and Doug. We also ran into Abbey's musicology teacher Deborah with her husband and son Sammy. The girls all held up really well considering all the lines we waited on in the sun. Did I mention it was quite warm out for the end of Sept.--although I am not complaining.
