A quick note before the somewhat wordless part. Carlos is happily settling into kindergarten. I am slowly finding a new routine. So far my days have been consumed with running, cooking and cleaning. Oh and last week we came across an amazing offer to refinance our mortgage so that has kept me very busy. I am running a race this weekend and then I hope to get back on track here. I’ve certainly got a lot swimming in my head to write about. In the meantime I wanted to post some photos from our visit this past weekend to Hilltop Orchards and Furnace Brook Winery in Richmond, MA. If you are in the area I highly recommend stopping by for a hike, apple picking, wine tasting, hot, fresh cider donuts and more.
Cool pics! 🙂 I haven’t taken a hayride in forever! Sounds like a fun time!
You look so happy and you’re clearly having fun while making great family memories. It doesn’t get any better!
I love all your pictures. I was a terrible mother in that I rarely took pictures, often time being the mom that forgot her camera at the awards ceremony. Yeah, terrible mother! haha!
Thanks Lucille. You are not a terrible mother. My Dad bought us this dSLR camera which was so sweet. I wanted one eventually, but when I had time to learn how to use it properly. I feel a little extra pressure to use it now that I have it. It’s fun though. The digital age sure makes it a lot easier because you don’t have to spend time getting all the film developed. Thanks for coming by.
You have been busy!! Hooray about your refinance! We live in a small town so our comps are shit. Only 2, two bedroom houses have sold in the last year – one for $79,000 and the other for $87,000 – and we have an acre lot and our house only appraised for $91k. Fingers crossed yours goes through!
I am so glad Carlos is digging K, Finn LOVES it so far. We are in the midst of a refi too, of course the minute we locked in they announce lower rates, ARGH! Oh well, I just hope our appraisal comes in where we need it. Good luck!
Hi Aimee! Yay for the refinance! I hope it saves you lots of bucks. Your family is beautiful. Best of all, I love Carlos’ facial expressions of true happiness.
Ooooh, cider donuts, wine and cider tasting.
looks like a really great time.
Ahhh, apple picking. One of those fall rites of passage that those of us in CA just don’t understand. Someday I will be on the East Coast in late September/early October for fall – the changing leaves, the apples, the brisk air. I think I just found another thing to add to my bucket list!
