Two firsts

I made applesauce for the first time! This is the first time I've ever canned anything too. My mother in law let me borrow her canner (big pot to do the water bath in). I got 15 jars of applesauce. I still have apples left and I want to make pie filling next.

This weekend we went to Portland to visit family and go to a wedding. While up there, we went to Ikea for the first time. We had never been to one before. I've looked at their stuff online before. It's kind of weird though. In the front entrance, you go up an escalator first and then have to go through this maze of all the showrooms. There are some short cuts, but basically you have to go through the whole store to get out.

Also while up there, we went to a small pumpkin patch. We went with Dan's sisters and mom. The sisters bought pumpkins, but we didn't. We are planning on going to a local pumpkin patch this weekend. I want to get some pumpkins to cook with to make pumpkin puree for pies, soup and bread.
