Fair Weather Acres

We went there yesterday. All THREE of us! It was an exciting time =) Mattingly went on a hayride, picked out pumpkins, jumped in corn, rode a tractor, got his face painted and stole my blueberry ice cream. We could have painted our pumpkins as well but we didn't want to.


the fish. Brittany bought Mattingly a beta fish. He really hasn't cared much about it until last night when we were carving pumpkins on the counter. He got it 2 weeks ago. Here's a picture of him talking to it and telling it to listen and stop moving.

Around the state

My friend from New Zealand came to visit last week so we took lots of day trips around CT and one to NYC. Here are some of the pictures from the gorgeous weather we had. =) From top to bottom-Gillette Castle, Essex Steam Train and Boat, New York Bus tour, Harkness Park, Yale, Mark Twain House and outside Cheesecake Factory.

Pumpkin Town

Mattingly and I went to Pumpkin Town in East Hampton a few weeks ago. It was okay. A little creepy. Mattingly of course was afraid of all the pumpkin people so we didn't stay too long. His favorite part was the kids shooting balls into a little pond trying to get them into a hole in the raft and a guy in the water collecting the balls. He liked all the painted pumpkins and picked out his favorite-Elmo. I tried to entice him to get the Yankees but he didn't want to.

Look at...

August posts. I had one in my drafts I never put up and did today but it goes under August.

Last weekend Mark set up his old train set for Mattingly. He loved it but is still a little too young or we need a bigger table! If the train isn't set on the track just right it falls off the track and on the floor. This caused a few mishaps. The last fall chipped the connector to pull other cars. Mattingly sure looks like a pro sitting there running it though!
