As we made our way back home I asked the kids if they had had a good time and they all had a blast which was great. I had a nice time but not as much as I usually do and at first I couldn't figure out why not. Then it dawned on me that pretty near the whole time I felt kinda like this guy:

I constantly felt like I was on high Levi alert. The boy seems to have a penchant for adventure and bodily harm.. There was a parking lot and cliffs to think about. It was a lot of looking this way and that and getting up and bringing him back to the group. This makes it a little difficult to enjoy conversations. I'll just have to keep telling myself that this is a stage and Levi and I will get through it and I'll get to socialize as much as my kids again some day!
We were hardly home when Marko was dropped off and he suggested going on our first apple picking of the season. We all piled back in the car and headed over to Maple Farms. It was wonderful to walk in the orchard as the sun was setting. The kids were ever so pleased. We're looking forward to trying out our new juicer!
