Fall Festival Pros

The more you hit up a place, the more you learn how to maximize your fun. We did just that with another trip to Cox Farms. All in all, it was our seventh trip. We hit all our highlights in record time and made the most out of our fall fair day with cousins!

Apples, Apples and More Apples

Not since Colin was in utero had we been to Hartland Orchard, but the visit was worth the wait! We had our pick of apples, some cider doughnuts, a tractor ride and lots of treats to make afterwards!

Fall Sports!

Back to school and back to weekends and weeknights of sports! Colin is keeping busy with baseball and flag football, while Owen is running around the soccer field with his classmates. Here are some early adventures this season…

Back to (The Same) School

It’s back-to-school time, and for the first time since summer 2018, the boys are in the same place! O started with a brand new teacher to Glebe and new friends-to-be, while Colin is an old pro. Here’s to a good school year!

Vineyard Round Up

There were so many adventures during a week on the Vineyard; here’s a roundup of everything we didn’t already cover!

MV Beach Day

It’s not a trip to Martha’s Vineyard without a visit to the beach. We had an exciting one, with breakfast at the airport, wave riding, a shark sighting and all the sun we could take in. South Beach never disappoints!

Fishing Expedition

In a family first, we ventured out on the Skipper for a fishing expedition in the waters around Martha’s Vineyard. We faced a little rain but that didn’t stop the excitement of reeling in a big one. Everyone had the chance to catch a “keeper”, helping others eat a fish feast that evening!

Up Island

With friends in tow, we saw some of the best parts of Up Island on the Vineyard, including Aquinnah for some views and lighthouse climbing, and Menemsha Hills for a 3-mile hike to the beach and back. Needless to say, we wore the kids out after a couple of days!

Back to The Vineyard

It had been four years, but we finally returned to Martha’s Vineyard to enjoy some tried and tested spots for a summer vacation. And this time, we had friends to share the experience. But first, we had an action-packed 24 hours that included some favorite destinations and a rare trip to the agricultural fair.
