Clowns and Apple Picking

Today's theatricality took the form of apple picking ... at a farm where you can pet / feed some animals ... at a farm whose Kendall apples had been soooooo thoroughly picked over that you need to extend an apple picking pole (or your niece up above your head) to reach them. Then we found the other apples, Macintosh's I think (or, well, super tasty apples at any rate). These trees were smaller somehow, and yet, they had WAY more apples on them - and at heights where said nieces could pick apples without having to be hoisted up in the air! Super fun!!!

Then, once home and after some playing around the yard ... we busted out the face paint and Aunt Gittybug The Clown created two new little clowns. P donned her clown name from last Christmas when I painted her like a clown for the first time, of Doo Da, and T decided upon "Ooo aaaah" (yes, like the sound a monkey makes)! Then P painted my face too ... good times!!!

And that is all, theatrically speaking.
