Happy New Lens

I got my new lens (Canon 50mm 1.2) today- so I was trying it out on Marcus, even though he wasn't looking the most photogenic runny-nose!....
He was pretty annoyed at this moment- couldn't figure out why he couldn't walk in Daddy's shoes!
Snacktime = CRACKERS
Super happy here- he was teasing Oscar with the cracker...Note the photo of my Dad & Lydia? We seem to be dragging that around more than beloved blankie today!

Marcus hasn't really been feeling well the past few days {bit of a cold and that last molar}...and today was a low-key day....I'm fairly certain I read no less than 47 books today....He was quiet for a moment, and I came around the corner to find him sitting in his rocking chair reading to himself. So, he may not look like his Mama, but he certainly acts like me!

Hanover in October

Last week we finally got a chance to make an outing as a little family & went to Hanover for the day...
Nate and Marcus outside the Hood Museum {Seriously...I had never incredibly embarrassing!}

Marcus being Marcus...(a big thanks to Ginni for the sweet sweater!)

Holding Daddy's hand...this is when I told him it would be okay if wanted to attend Dartmouth I won't be too far away!

The Holy Family with the Infant Saint John the Baptist- Denys Calvaert about 1570-1573

This weirdo sofa was made of cloth and cement paste....

I really am not a huge fan of modern art- but there was this HUGE piece of old telephone dials set into glass....super cool!

{Marcus's first time with chopsticks- he does a lot better than his mama!}

After going downtown and into some of the shoppes on Main Street- we had a late lunch at Yama Japanese & Korean Restaurant. One word: FABULOUS. The Hamilton's have a new favorite place to eat! Jen- when you and Ed finally return from overseas I'll have to bring you there- I'm sure you'll be missing the Korean cuisine!
P.S. I didn't take a picture- but I had a breve (latte with half&half) at the Dirt Cowboy Cafe that was so amazing that I actually dreamt about it that night....and I'm not even joking! Who dreams about lattes? Apprently I do!

Gram's 75th Grange Award

Gram was presented her 75th year recognition certificate by the State Grange Master; this award has only been presented 3006 times in the entire history of the Grange. Gram joined when she was 15 and has been active ever since!
Gram giving her little speech- she finished by informing the crowd that she "still drives!"

All three boys having fun in all the crazy leaves.

Saratoga Springs

After a long break for revamps & a crazy busy summer- my family/personal blog is finally back up and running- thank you Crissy for all your hard work!
Last weekend I went to Saratoga Springs to shoot Sue & Chris's Jaynesapalooza wedding....

Something I never really thought about- Saratoga Springs is named that because there are lots of natural Springs everywhere in the area...this was was in historical Congress Park.

The carousel was recently restored & we went there to do some super fun bridal party shots.

I also went to the Salsa & Spice Co. on Broadway....and brought home some delicious Autumn Apple Salsa & Photo Finish hot sauce (for Nate).

The Kayak's Maiden Voyage

We took the kayak to the end of the road and paddled around Chandler Pond for a little while- taking turns. Marcus (slathered in sun-screen lotion, I should add) enjoyed hanging out in his stroller. 

Oscar is pretty out-of-shape these days...he was panting like crazy in the middle of the pond!
