We would have stayed longer, but it started to rain! We made pies today, using your fabulous and easy recipe. Made one with graham cracker crust and one with pie crust. The kids all helped and we have priceless pictures! What a wonderful memory this will be! Thanks for putting all this together, we will be back!"
