Raina has stayed home all week with a fever, which topped out at 103.5 degrees Farenheit. She was a very pathetic looking little girl, who only desired cuddling with her cow and the Winnie the Pooh blanket. The fever finally broke Friday, and developed into a strange and all-encompassing rash. To celebrate her recovery AND the beginnings of autumn, the Whomptons headed to Eckerts. Eckerts is the nation's largest you-pick-em establishment; you can pick just about anything there, depending on the season. Today we acquired pumpkins, gourds, and excellent Fuji apples. We're all overjoyed to see the end of summer!
Raina checking out the potential pumpkins
We really liked this one -- it's a beauty! -- but we eventually ditched it.
Here Samantha and Raina eat all the free Fujis that they can. This may be one of the first times Raina ate an apple by herself, without an adult cutting it up for her. She tried really hard and made a huge mess. All her bites were teeny-tiny. Luckily, we gave her the teeny-tiny apples to match.
All Whomptons were worn out by the end of today: big kids playground, flag football, and Eckerts. Raina was all tuckered out.
