We have been spending a few weeks during summer in upstate New York with the same family friends for the past 4 years. As a mother, it is far from a relaxing vacation. There are always dramas, chaos and hungry kids, but we learn a lot from our conflicts. Nothing can beat the fresh air and the gorgeous land with fun folks.
90 degrees Sunshine in Brooklyn.
Lots of meats to grill, and more young ones this year.

A weekend foliage getaway/ pre-halloween rehearsal / double anniversary trip to mountainside of Vermont. Packed with wigs and boom box, marching up the mountain on freezing late afternoon. Shots of Corralejo kept us warm.
Jake and Coda visited NYC for the first time from Connecticut, taken by their master, Matt.
Matt, who is a certified dog trainer, showed the boys how to roll in the city.
They both behaved like a gentleman.
