I am completely in love with New England in the Fall. The apples, oh the apples. We went to Rose's Berry Farm with the preschool yesterday, and today we went to Belltown hill orchard,
because one can never have too many tractor rides. Both places are completely beautiful! At Belltown Hill Orchard you ride a tractor around the orchard and then get on and off at various stops in the loop depending on what kind of apples you want. They have the best apples I have ever eaten. I was very seriously considering throwing an apple tasting party, but David thought no.

We rode the ferry home, the longest operating ferry in the United States, two days in a row. And for those 4 minutes, all is right in the world.


This picture was from Friday. Thanks to my friend for the edit. I hope everyone is enjoying the beauty that is Fall!

Red Sox Nation

So, I went ahead and bought that hat for Peter for his first game at Fenway. Peter has been talking about the Red Sox with anyone who will listen- even the cable guy, Abby has a wicked Boston accent, and we have been in New England for half a decade, so really it was time.
They did loose the game, but Peter fell asleep just before the seventh inning stretch, and didn't even ask who won until we got to the car. Maybe he was just to busy telling his new friends/ Aunt Vicki's friends about his conquests as a jet pilot.

...and then on the way home we stopped by Walden Pond, and I went for a swim. It was stunningly beautiful, I had the pond all to myself, and I felt alive!

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."

Henry David Thoreau
