Every year around the beginning of October, my Dad and Ialways go apple picking at Sholan Farms. We always get 3 full bags ofapples so we can make apple crisp. One time when we went applepicking we were walking back to are car with all the bags. Then therewas a hole in the grass and I accidently stepped in it and I rolled myankle. Plus all the apples fell out of the bags!
My brother and I always watch the Bruins whenever they play.Hockey is our favorite sport because its fast and there are a lot of fightsthat are fun to watch, and everyone in my family plays hockey.

So hopefullythe lockout ends soon, so we can start watching the bruins again! MyMom’s and I favorite player is Tyler Sequin because we think he is thecutest player on the Bruins. My Dad promised my brother and me that hewill try and buy tickets for next year to see the Bruins!

Next I put the cup with the icecream in the microwave for 1 minute. After it’s been in the microwave Istir up the ice cream so it’s like a shake. Then finally I put whippedcream until it fills to the top. It’s really good and I have it almost everynight if we have coffee ice cream!This is coffee ice cream when you stir it up!
