Alie did a week in the life project on her blog. So I decided to follow along and try to document a week in our life. It was hard to remember what we did each day, even at the end of the day. This is one of the craziest weeks in our life, it has been one of the most unusual abnormal weeks we've had in a while. Each night I typed up what went on and will be adding the pictures and uploading them over the next day or so

Cider Days

We went to Cider Days in Lakewood on Sunday. Some of the things we enjoyed were the arts & crafts booths, a vintage tractor pull, food, cider, barrel train rides and the petting zoo. We bought 10 lbs of Gala, Jonnagold and Jonathon apples. Clint got to use an apple press from the the late 1880s and made us about a half gallon of fresh apple cider.

Chopping up the apples

Pressing the apples

Out comes the cider
