Chudleigh's Apple Farm

The weather was perfect for spending the afternoon at a local apple farm today.

My favourite part of the day was sitting for a wagon ride through the apple orchards under the most perfect sky.

I don't know why we haven't visited this farm sooner...

Are Deer not SO amazingly beautiful??

Just one of those fascinating things that also totally make me nervous. The area where this swarm was had been roped off and sign posted to prevent anyone disturbing it. Yikes.

*Note: There is food available, but I would advise bringing a picnic.

I had to make a quick roadside stop (meaning a few inches of gravel, and 2/3 of the only lane), to capture this field on my way home. Seeing as all the "back roads" around my home are quickly losing this status due to the crazy growth of the area and the many commuters, you should know I irritated a lot of people to bring you this lovely view. ;)

{This Moment}

{This moment} is inspired by Soulemama, and beautifully done by so many. It reveals a moment from our week that is special enough to stand alone, without need for expression, or explanation.

Please feel free to share a link leading myself and others to your 'moment'. :)

Luna Moth Caterpillar

Looks like this may be the Luna Moth Caterpillar...

I should add that my brilliant observations on this critter are not, in fact, due to my insane caterpillar expertise, but because I googled "neon green large caterpillar in ontario". Yes, I know, I am a genius.

What on earth did we do pre-google, may I ask??

Big Boy Bedtime!

Last night began with Levi being led back to his bed after appearing suddenly at our side more times than I can count. In the end, he slept soundly without any tumbles this first night in his new big boy "bed" (mattress). Hooray!
We had a very difficult time not bursting out laughing every time his little face peeked around a corner, or we turned around to see him scrambling back to his bed attempting to go unnoticed. Funny that it caught us by surprise each time...

My little baby boy. I don't want you to stop growing, but if you could just please slow down a little...
