Apple Picking

Clockwise from top-left: Katie, Moritz, Dad, Mom

Apple-picking has always been a family favorite during fall. This year was no exception, except for the fact that Paul and Richard "grew up 10 years ago" and opted out. In their place, we took along Moritz, an exchange student from Germany who spent six weeks with our family. It was his first time going apple picking in the U.S. He said that there are apple orchards in Germany, but "not like this." The trip was completed with a wagon-ride, apple cider and cider donuts, as well as a trip into the Orchard Store. Overall, it was a great time... now it's time to put all those apples to use!

"Cousins" Scrapbook

It's been years since the whole "Harvey-McLogan" clan has been in one location at the same time. However, this past August, we've come as close as we're likely to get, now that all the cousins are grown and working jobs that have led us from New York to Florida to Australia and beyond (our world travel, Brian Harvey). This rare image captures the essence of family at its best! Brian M. and Brian H., you were certainly with us in our thoughts and there WAS even talk of "photoshopping" you in to the picture, but I haven't quite mastered that process yet...
