Family Photos at YaYa Orchard

I jumped at the chance to get family pictures at our favorite apple orchard.  I was a little disappointed that the blossoms weren’t in full bloom yet, but I think the pics turned out pretty cute.  And nothing has made me feel more middle aged than bringing the dog to family pictures.  I fought a…

Last Day in Berlin
