A New England Fall

It was about time we introduced Behr to one our favorite places, Boston in the Fall.  So over Columbus Day weekend, we packed our bags and headed North.  This is our trip:

{day one}

Our first day was spent catching up with former co-workers, and dinner with my best friends from high school...who conveniently moved to Boston after I left!
reunited with auntie karlene.  we have a picture that looks just like this from Behr's first week.

reminding auntie katie that her nephews
are not cuter than Behr! :)

{day two}

While Mark went off to play in a golf tournament with some of his lacrosse teammates, Behr and I met up with some "lacrosse wives."  We headed to Russell Orchards to apple cider donuts and a few photo opportunities.

Behr was not into the picture taking...unless we gave him hay to play with.

One of the things I became most excited about was the chance to "re-enact" our maternity photos from the year before.

We took a good long nap after the orchard.  Taking pictures is hard work!  But our afternoon held even more excitement!  Behr and I went back to the old college campus for a stroll with...Bridget and Parker!
We walked around campus with our babies, nursed them in broad daylight in a building that didn't exist when we were students, and got to catch up face-to-face.  It is always great to see old friends.  Seeing Bridget on campus reminded me of how many people I wish I could see more often.  But alumni weekend had only just begun...

I am linking up to small style:

{day one}
Navy and White Knit Romper - Gap
found at a consignment sale for just a few bucks!

{day two}
Plaid and Brown Waffle Shirt - Cherokee
Jeans - Cherokee
Socks - Old Navy

    Too funny and so very cute.

  4. Such cute outfits! I especially love the picture of Behr crying in the middle of the pumpkins... so sweet!

  5. Ha ha, I have a photo of my daughter crying in the middle of a bunch of pumpkins, too!

    He really is a cutie when he's not crying though!
