It's been a while!!

It has been a long time since my last post.  Things are FINALLY starting to settle down.

We have moved into our new house, it is absolutely beautiful!!! Here is a picture of Andy and Cale the morning that we closed on the house.  All our stuff has arrived and is mostly unpacked and we all love it.

Two weeks ago we spent a wonderful week up in the Adirondacks - the mountains in upstate NY - with my parents. We had a big house to share that was right on the water.  We had a canoe, kayak and rowing boat at the house that we could use. I bought Cale a fishing pole and he had a blast learning how to cast into the water (I never actually put bait on it, he was content enough with the rubber fish that came on the end of it and who was I to argue against not having an actual hook?)  It rained some during the trip but we enjoyed just relaxing inside the house.

Today we went with the moms group to a farm where we went apple picking. It was the first time for the boys and I had not been in ages. We had a great time and took home two nice bags of apples. We actually took a horse drawn carriage ride to the orchards - so much fun!  Apparently in the winter they do horse drawn sleigh rides - gotta remember that one!

Hopefully now that we are settling into a routine I will be better about getting more posts on the blog to update you all on our lives.
