Last Thursday, a day after Will turned three, we packed up the car and drove to Massachusetts. It took us 10.5 hours to drive there (Thanks, in part, to Mike's GPS inspired detour through downtown Newark during rush hour - which ticked me off just a little. Ask me later about his GPS inspired detour through the Bronx two trips ago.) and 8.5 hours to drive back.
It's OK, you can think we're crazy for doing such a trip with a 3 year old and 4 month old. But, I have to say, the kids were AMAZING little travelers.
And, really, what's better than Fall in New England?
Will lucked out with another birthday party. However, this time he had to share with his Grammy (who turned 83 on the 28th).
Will likes to sing 'Happy Birthday' to himself.
I still can't believe how many gifts he got.
We finally got to meet little cousin Brendan.
Who wasn't too interested in having his picture taken with the others. The best I got...
Will, on the other hand, was surprisingly cooperative.
He loves his 'Melia. Most of the time.
Everyone loves Amelia.
I'm finally in a picture and it's blurry!!
Unfortunately we had a gross, rainy weekend. Sunday cleared up just enough for us to get out a bit. Aunt Becky treated us to an outing at Davis Farmland.
Will wasn't really interested in feeding the animals, but he liked watching others do it.
Yeah, I did the face paint. He's supposed to be a kitty. He added the orange line.
I wish this place was near us. Everyone loved the farm.
Will heard there were race cars and was so excited. I'm not sure this is what he had in mind, but he made it around the track once.
Aunt Becky, however....
We rounded out our weekend with a trip to my FAVORITE ice cream place: Kimball Farm.
Yeah, per the usual, he ate about two bites and that was it.
Amelia was very ready for bed at this point. Obviously.
I'm not sure when we'll brave this trip again, so it was extra special.
