The fun activities have continued to present themselves each week. I am enjoying gallivanting all over and I am trying to get my fill because I know it will greatly decrease, or cease for a time, when our new little arrival comes and old man winter. Last week we went to Beech Hill Farm. The drive there in and of itself was so pleasant. Both sides of the road were lined with tall trees and shrubs that have started to change to vibrant yellow, orange, and red hues. I think I will have to drive that a couple times a week to fill my Cottonwood Canyon drive craving. It seemed to fill that craving quite well. Besides enjoying the sunny, warm weather at the farm, the kids loved playing on the sandhill, looking at the animals and taking rides in little wagons. There were also festive rows of pumpkins all over. Before we left we of course indulged in some delicious homemade ice cream, I will be going back for more.

Caroline took her first trip to the dentist. I was very impressed with the staff and the office, it was spotless and so kid friendly. Caroline was able to follow the toothpaste trail to the orange room. She crawled right up into the chair and did so well.
Another adventure to Boston filled a day last week as well. Four of us decided to go see the USS Constitution and go on the "kid friendly" boat to let the kids enjoy. Well, turns out it was not so kid friendly as they couldn't touch anything. They did well though, and luckily we found a water shuttle to take us back to where we began our 2 mile trek. We let the kids run around on the grass and enjoyed the nice evening. Then we went to Quincy Market for dinner. I can't get enough of hanging out with Caroline everyday. This has been such a delight after working full time last year. I am so glad that we have these next few months to spend with just us, although we do wish daddy could come on all of our adventures. He is working so hard and has made it to midterms..we'll let you know if he makes it THROUGH midterms. We are so proud of you!
