Summer Fun: Free Soccer & Basketball

This morning we took advantage of one of the many fun, free things to do for kids in the city: soccer and basketball classes in Riverside Park for kids 5 and under.  Isabella had a great time, it wore her out (amazing!), and she made a new friend.  (They were holding hands and running all over the place together, it was adorable.)  Oliver acted like a two year old.

The little girl is Isabella's new friend, who just moved here from Brighton, UK.

Weekends in Connecticut

We spent the last couple of weekends at the Carini Homestead in Connecticut.  This is my favorite time of year to go visit.  I love to soak in the lovely rolling, green hills of the Northeast.  I fell in love with these hills just from photos I looked at as a teenager.  I use to day dream of visiting century old farmhouses, covered bridges, and rock walls.  And now I can do that every weekend; how lucky am I?!

Here's some of what we did the last two weekends:

cherry picking at Belltown Hill Orchards
raspberry picking at Carini's Berry Farm
the berries were amazing and abundant
eating ice cream at Robb's Farm Ice Cream
running and playing in green fields
getting ready to pick blueberries at Belltown
the blueberries were massive and so delicious!
beautiful blueberry orchards
playing a bit of croquet at Harkness--it was lovely
I love my baby and his awesome daddy.
