The Professor and I are in beautiful Seattle once again – we’re finishing up a couple of projects with Shauna and Danny and had the pleasure of spending a Saturday visiting friends for a day of cider pressing.

Everyone knows that cider pressing is hard work . . . in the mind of a 4-year-old, tossing apple chunks into a machine where the adults are turning the crank is an adventure and requires a good breakfast at a favorite local restaurant.

Coffee, camera and dreidels are a normal part of the landscape . . .

Making good cider also requires friends with an apple orchard, a ladder and lots of friends . . .

Making good cider also requires mom and dad helpers . . .

Making good cider also requires at least one four-legged friend . . .

Making good cider requires hats, coats, scarves, a big barn, a cider press and a teensy bit of patience – today was a great day.

Enjoy your Sunday!



  1. Any job when done with friends becomes more enjoyable and less stressful. Beautiful photographs, as always!


  2. love this. pressing cider is wonderful, especially when shared and done as a family. That little girl is lucky that she’ll have countless memories like this when she gets older. And people to document with love and care.
