Fall is for Apple Pie

Sky Top Orchard is about an hour drive in beautiful western NC. Sunday was perfect. High 60’s, blue skies. I think we’ll be making Sky Top an annual Zagar tradition!

Michael made it – I can’t make anything that looks or tastes that good!

The Big Day!

Abby was beautiful and the boys were so handsome. Yesterday was the perfect day for a lake side wedding! I’ll share the photographers website when the pictures are up.

It was 65 degrees
The green

Beautiful weekend. Fall is in the air.

The REAL Lightning McQueen

Yesterday we were invited to a local race at Anderson Motor Speedway. Now, I don’t want to sound snobby but I felt a *tad* out of place. I didn’t have any race wear, hat, camo, beer or cigarettes. However, I did find myself getting into the race- annoyed at all the cautions and cheering them on at the end.

But not this one!

Other Fun on Wheels news – the kids took the bus home yesterday. I’ve been going back and forth about it but the time/gas and disruption to Lydia’s afternoon nap..it just makes sense to let them ride.

They of course loved it and begged to ride everyday.

The other kid is missing because he’s anti-pictures, remember.

**There was a slight moment of panic when the transportation office called me at 2:45 saying they didn’t know where to drop off Abby.
What?!? Where’s Ben?!
But it ended up being a miscommunication and they were trying to figure out another new riders address. Because of this confusion they were way behind schedule.

You have no idea how happy I was to see that bus coming around the corner!!!

August.

Yay for September!! Cooler temperatures are right around the corner!!! Here is a (long!) look at what else went on around here in August.

A South-Carolina-kind-of-date happened: Catfishin’. It was quiet and peaceful (the complete opposite of my days). No fish were caught but some fun memories made ~ like a bat flying at me and a HUGE crane coming a little too close for my comfort.

When kids get ahold of phone, fun surprises are left behind:
