Bob the Apple

Let’s bob for apples, shall we?

Ike, you go first.

Seth, wanna give it try?  C’mon get your head in there, don’t be shy.

Atta girl!  Way to dunk that head!

Honey,  I only have four apples, put it back and let the kids play….yes, I see you got an apple, now put it back.

Double dunkin’

This kid.  This kid right here, I love him.  He can’t take a bath without a towel within reach to wipe away a drip of water from his face, but when it comes to bobbing for apples, he’s hard core.  He tried so dang hard to get that apple.  He was coughing and sputtering, risking his life to get one of his teeny-tiny baby teeth hooked into the waxy flesh of one Gala apple.  He was not giving in to the fear, he would not cry “UNCLE!”  He wanted that apple, he was not stopping until he got it.
With one glorious nip, one tiny puncture, he nabbed that apple.  He was so happy that he started to squeal and promptly dropped that apple right back to its watery birth.
