So…… we just got back from a week of fun, food, and fellowship with my family! Here are a few snap-shots of our time and my sister-in-law’s famous Apple Pie!

My parents booked this beautiful cabin. Massive enough for the ever growing family! =)

Version 2

We got to hang out with beautiful people like these two.

And of course attention from Grandpa Hurst was always welcomed.

IMG_3162Trying to take a picture of this amount of kiddos was exhausting! (Note: there are a few that refused to be added to this picture or were missing during this shot! =))

This was about the best we could do.

Yes. That little guy on the fire truck is mine. And yes, he refused to look at the camera no matter how much coaxing the adults did! =) I really should have swung around and taken a shot of all the adults behind me, clapping, dancing, and making weird faces! Haha. Next time.

The week is always too short.

Then there was food. Lots of it. My darling sister-in-law Abby made these delicious Strawberry creme crepes! So good. I’m sorry but I can’t look at them any longer so I’ll move on! =)

And then one morning I woke up to the smell of Mom’s cinnamon rolls. Just like old times. And oh, were they good!!! Take me back! I want to re-live that moment.

A while later I caught Rosemary in the kitchen, keeping up the tradition with her Apple Pie. Anyone acquainted with Rosemary will know that Apple pie is her specialty along with raising beautiful kiddos and being an awesome wife. She’s a woman of many gifts and whenever I’m with her I can just see the love of God radiating from her face.

Thank you Rosemary for sharing your recipe!

Here’s a few step-by-step pictures of the process.
