We had originally planned to celebrate at the local apple orchard. However, a cold, rainy day kept us indoors. So, we had to make some adjustments, but I think for a first birthday with friends, all went well!

|how many candy corn in the jar? they were so funny with their guesses... it ranged from 100 to 1 million. Actual number? 402... 4+0+2=6.|
|boys completely enthralled with the history of apple bobbing.. true or false, i still don't know. but, i can say that i was completely impressed with the mister's storytelling skills|
|caramel apples to put in the goody bag|
|10 boys in all... and we really did have a jolly good time.|
N's actual birthday fell on a Sunday this year and it just so happened that we had a fellowship gathering after church. So, we took over a cake and had a special time with our church family.
