We need a vacation!

Melody and her friend, Evie, were cranky by the end of the day on July 4th. Parents and grandparents were snapping photos like crazy as they cried. Hahahaha!Evie's parents were having a BBQ, so I brought dessert, Amy's Freaky Good Apple Tart. The filling is cooked first and then you pour it into the pie crust. Fresh apple slices are fanned across the top and then the whole thing gets baked. I love simple desserts like this.

We are off to the Jersey Shore today for a week of fun and relaxation. Our first family vacation with Miss M. We are staying at Bradley Beach like last year. I have 2 recommended yarn shops to visit, so there will be some yarn shopping. See ya!

Yummy! That apple pie looks delicious! I haven't been able to view your blog for a couple of months. Melody is growing quickly and is as cute as ever - even when she is crying. I really love her in that gorgeous sweater you made for her. Happy Birthday to Napoleon and have a great vacation!
