7 months old!!!

Can you believe it? We can't! Owen was 7 months old on Saturday! I ended up with a weekend off of work, so we celebrated by going out on a date, watching Northwestern beat Minnesota, hosting some company, and apple picking. It was so nice to be home and awake this weekend! Poor Mike didn't get to much relaxing done, but a fun time was had by all. Owen was well behaved at the football game, but in a bit of a crabby mood! Even Willie the Wildcat couldn't make him smile. He also got a little nervous about all of the yelling and cheering. Lesson learned. Maybe we'll try again next year. Unfortunately, we forgot the camera. Saturday night, our friends from Creighton, Nick and Sarah, came to visit. On Sunday we took them to Apple Holler. The weather was a little less than perfect, but we picked a half peck of Rome Beauty apples. Owen stayed warm and dry bundled up in the baby bjorn and zipped up in Mike's jacket.
So far, we made apple pancakes and apple cake. Tomorrow, we are going to try to make applesauce and baby applesauce.

Today, Owen managed to escape while I was changing his diaper. He was pretty proud of himself and since the camera was close, I couldn't resist!!!
