Belkin Farm Open House on August 10th!

As much as I love Summer…I’m kind of looking forward to Fall. I know CRAZY right?! Even though my schedule fills up over the Fall, there is so much to look forward too. My sister is expecting her 2nd child in September! My daughter turns 8! And I get to wear leggings on the regular again. There is much to look forward too! Though it wouldn’t be Fall without….apple picking!! My favorite place to visit during the fruit picking season is Belkin Lookout Farm in Natick. Take the family on a lovely train ride through the orchard, get lost in the rows of fruit, and fill your belly with ripe fruit. Oh yes, get excited!!

Weekend Wrap-Up: Memorial Weekend

Oh how I loooove long weekends. I was counting down the hours at work on Friday ready to be set FREE! Lil Mama and I didn’t have any plans for the weekend, so we picked up and left for NYC. You see, I like a schedule; I like consistency so this spontaneous trip was seriously out of my comfort zone. But, it was to see my boo in the big apple so I went with it…and I’m glad I did, we had a ball, as we always do in NYC.

The weather was sunny and warm and Saturday was crazy muggy – but better than a weekend full of rain. We spent the majority of the weekend outdoors taking in the sites and taking advantage of all the great memorial weekend activities.

We took a ferry over to Governor’s Island and explored the historic island. There was music, crafts, and bike riding. We got a little too close to the water and got splashed!

We love love love the Night at the Museum movies so I was psyched to bring lil mama to the American Museum of Natural History. She got really excited seeing some of the same things in the museum from the movie.

I had my *first* Coldstone experience. And I WILL be going back!!

Random subway dancing at the end of the day made everyone smile.

My weekend trips to NY have been great – but I’m glad to be home. It’s a beautifully dirty city; I wanted to shower in hand sanitizer haha. But the food, oh the fooood in NYC will have me going back in a heartbeat.

That’s my weekend wrap-up. Do share your weekend highlights!!


Wordless Wednesday

I’m ready for Summer.
