Sunday, we drove back up to apple country, Oak Glen for our second visit....had an even better time as we knew our way around a bit better and explored a little more....
the bakery here was so wonderful...Alan explained he needed a sugar free pie and the bakers volunteered to make him a special one....we picked it up on our way out about an hour or so later..wasn't that nice? It stayed hot on the drive home..and tasted very good...he said it was "almost" as good as mine....Los Rios Ranch is a family run apple orchard..They are Christians and have a old time Gospel Night every third Thursday of the month except December...while we were waiting for the pie, we drove down the road farther and found a great  place to eat...Law's Diner and Coffee Shop..it had been recommended by several employees of the different ranches as the best place to go....Alan ordered a Reuben sandwich and I ordered a hamburger..they were both very very good or perhaps it was just the mountain air? Our server was so helpful and let us know about their Friday specials..$6.95 for homemade chicken pot pie..which sounded delicious and we only wished we lived a little closer....but then again, wouldn't be too good for me as I am somewhat dieting.....
It was a hot day....over 108 at our house and just a little cooler here in the mountains...they do have some Bed and Breakfasts in the area and it would be a nice weekend get away...we came home feeling like we'd be on vacation which can't be a bad thing....
back to reality today...always housework but the boys are doing alot better keeping our house clean...no wet towels on the floor anymore and the dishes were all put away which was a pleasant surprise...and its still hot..in the triple digits again with the AC blasting away......fall can't be too far away...
