I went apple picking with the Shaw family. They're a really beautiful and warm family, and there's a lot to be learned from them. They adopted their son, Mesay, from Ethiopia less than a month ago. The apple picking adventure was my first time meeting him and boy is he lovely. His older sister, Winnie, had been one of my best kid friends since I met her in 2010. My fantastic housemates, Chelsea & Mike, came along also. Thanks to them & Winnie for picking most of my apples while I held my camera. What a great day at Lynd's Fruit Farm.
