mini vacation

I just got back from a mini vacation with some girl friends. It was nice. A lot of cookies, relaxing and a few beers thrown in. I think everyone needs a non planned relaxing day or days. It makes going back to routine much easier for sure.
Of course I have no photos..mostly cause I dot feel like lugging my camera around. Also cause I have been feeling really non creative and my heart isn't in at much as it used to be. I'm going to be doing more photos just for my own enjoyment and less for other people. That may mean less money coming in but I really want to figure my way out of this photo funk.

Sebastian took this one of me holding my big (baby) boy.

So last night I was hungry and wanting something to eat. Unfortunately we had nothing really to snack on that I wanted. I decided to just torture myself with This site showcases different peoples recipes and food pictures. YUM! It only makes one hungrier though really.
So anyway, I got it in my head that I had to make apple pie from scratch last night. So today August and I set out to do just that. We had a lot of fun. Don't get me wrong, It was a bit labor intensive, but worth it for sure. Borrowing a apple peeler/corer was definitely a good move too, it cut our work in half and was also fun to do.

It is still cooling so I cant tell you if it was a success yet ;)

ETA- The pie was really good. It had more of a tart taste to it which I liked and went well with the ice cream I put on top. The crust was yummy but quite crumbly. I may try a different recipe next week just for fun and to compare.
