Mommy and Me Monday- The 31st Edition


It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids.  Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.

Because it was the right thing to do, and we have a Fall Break, we ventured up to Ellijay this weekend to go and pick some apples.

However, once the girls spotted the petting zoo at the back of the farm, the apples totally lost their appeal.  The pigmy goats, miniature ponies, pigs, chickens and bunnies were way more interesting.

I do think the apple farm would have been a lot more seasonal if it wasn’t 92 degrees while we were there.  However, we still made our pumpkin-chocolate muffins, and we’re patiently awaiting the arrival of Fall in our neck of the woods.

Here in my country we will not be experienced with fall and even with the other season….huhu….on wikipedia it says “Malaysia’s climate is categorised as equatorial, being hot and humid throughout the year”….guess we will not be able to experience those 4 seasons. Hope to read your blog on those seasons 😀
