When I got my braces off I think a caramel apple was the first thing I ate. Taking the whole family to Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory just didn't seem as fun as making them though, so we introduced the kids to caramel apples by dipping some! They had so much fun making them and they gobbled the whole things right up! Anyone who has ever seen an eastern European child eat an apple will tell you what I mean. They literally eat the whole thing!
Peeling the wrappers off the caramels.
Keaton hoping one will drop. He strategically placed himself at the feet of Sophie and Tate even though Julian and Lily were at the little table. That dog is no dummy!
Who says the youngest is never first?
Right as I snapped this picture Julian pretended to eat a bite. I think it is funny that the picture came out just that way.
Lily high-fives Uncle Kevin after she helps him out with his apple. Have I mentioned that my BIL's name is also Kevin? We like to keep it simple around here. My brother is also named Noah Kevin, after my dad's brother who is my Uncle Kevin. What can we say? We like our Kevins. :)
The fruits of their labor. (Oh, the cheesy pun was so intentional.) Sometimes I sit back and listen to the way they giggle and squeal at the life's simple pleasures (the love of a family, running in the rain, a cookie fresh from the oven) and I wonder what they were doing last year at this time and why they have adjusted so easily. I just know when I look into their eyes and see those teethy grins that this was the way that God intended it to be and that is why it comes so naturally to all six of us!
