Happy PI Day!! (A day late)

Say what?

Yesterday was pi day.

March 14, 2015 

Date  3-14-15
Pi       3.1415

Pi                   3.141592653 
Date/Time      3/14/15  9:26:53

And in honor of Pi day, of course, we ate what else other than


It had a Pi symbol on it!
Of course. 

For those not loving Apple pie there were other selections including chocolate and pecan.
