The Imaginative One LOVES apples.  Actually, that’s an understatement; he adores apples and will eat all the way to the core and even around the seeds.  He loves to pack them for lunch.

Since it’s fall, apples are plentiful, so I decided I would try to make some applesauce in the crock pot.  I’ve made it on the stove, so I followed the same method but in the crock pot instead.

While the apples were cooking, the boys and I went on an adventure.  The in the Dayton areaWright Brothers lived in the Dayton areaWright Brothers lived in the Dayton area and tested out the airplane.  I’m so fortunate that I live about 5 miles from where they tested the airplane after the December 17, 1903 flight.  We went to the Interpretive Center and then down to the Huffman Dam, which was built after the Great Flood of 1913.  After we were done with our walk, we drove through the local university because it has beautiful fall foliage, especially in one area.
