4th of July and an Apple Pie!

My Homemade Apple Pie...with struesel topping! Isn't she beautiful?!
So all last week I was just so determined to make a homemade apple pie for the 4th of July. In fact, I've been wanting to make my own apple pie since like last Thanksgiving and I finally did it!!! I actually kind of cheated with the crust though...my sister Jenna gave me one of her leftover pie crusts a couple weeks ago so it's been sitting in my freezer this whole time...until Friday! Anyways, we had a great 4th of July! We went to Aaron's friends' house for breakfast, watched The Sandlot, had my sister Staci over for a gooood bbq dinner, made apple pie, hung out and then went to watch some fireworks. Here are some pictures thanks to Aaron and Staci...

Here I am with my tall and handsome husband!
He was such a good helper...he helped me cut the apples
which definitely helped speed the process.



P.S. Aaron said it was the best apple pie he's ever had! He might've just been saying that but probably not because it was the best apple pie I've ever had too. :)
