We just got back late last night from a little spur-of-the moment weekend trip to Maine!
The New England fall colors were on my lifetime “to see” list, and lo-and-behold, here I am in New York!
So, we found a VERY cheap hotel (surprisingly nice, if you don’t mind trains barreling past your window at all hours of the night), printed out some directions and we went!
First off, we stopped in Redding, Connecticut to pick up some pumpkins. A place I never thought that I would visit, but it was absolutely GORGEOUS!!
I tried to narrow down the pictures a little, but come on!!
Pumpkins + fall colors + fat baby in a pumpkin hat
(my its-too-cute-I-can’t-stand-it sound. Rhymes with Baaah.)
Plus my mom and my mother-in-law love them all, I promise.
So, if you are not them, feel free to skim.
Highlight: When Joseph saw the first pumpkin out in the patch he yelled, “Look! It’s AUTUMN!!!”
(Nom, nom, nom!!!!)
And, lastly, what is now my favorite picture ever:
How can I NOT get up with that little loverboy 3 times a night??!!
Now, how does one go about carving a pumpkin in a hotel?…
