NYC: 2010

This past weekend we made the trek to NYC to visit Andy & Maria and see their fabulous new apartment in Queens. On Saturday we took Marcus to the Sesame Street Theme Park in Pennsylvania {about an hour and half drive from the city}
It is pretty evident that someone was having a good time on the Merry-Go-Round with his Uncle Andy!

My new favorite family photo....

His eyes got so wide when Big Bird came onto the stage....totally made the trip worth it!
"Bert! Bert!"
Hello, Big Bird....Sparky got to meet him up close & personal {and Elmo and the Count too!}
Trick or Treating NY style {side note: we left the adorable gnome costume at home...but were lucky enough to find this Bat Man costume for $10 at H&M}
Auntie Maria & Bat Man
Happy Halloween!

Sweet puppy kisses...
Mom, Levi & Marcus
Hello, Levi!

Sparky and the Pumpkin Patch Express

Today I had to meet some clients in Jackson- and it just so happened that the Cog Scenic RR was hosting their Pumpkin Patch Express...costumes encouraged. Luckily- the dragon {aka Dinosaur} top still fit from last year- as I haven't yet finished 2010's Halloween costume. It was incredibly cold and windy today- so the dinosaur top kept him nice and warm....
"Stop, Choo-Choo Train!" putting his hand out like a policeman...and yes, it stopped to his amazement.

The sheer wonder of meeting the conductor.....

There were so few people on the train on a Friday that we got to put our shoes and "boom-booms" up.
The train stopped in Glen at the Cider House and all the little ones got to pick a pumpkin- Auntie Sara would be proud of how perfect this one was!
Pretty smug -feeling like a hot-shot on the train- and a little bit tired too! xoxo

New Baby = New Bedrooms

Me: "Marcus, what kind of baby are we going to have?"
Marky: "a BOOOOOOY"
{and yes- that is the face he makes when saying "boy"!}
Sweet little Henry.....kicking me!
And since we now know for certain that we are having boy #2- Daddy has been hard at work getting Marcus' big-boy-bedroom done....so he can move in and get settled before Henry arrives.

Taken from what will be bedroom #2- they will have adjoining bedrooms....and most likely sleep in one and play in the other....Sparky helping Daddy {he even has his tool belt on}

It looks like we {Nate} has a lot to do- but I think the end is in site!

4 Years

Yesterday we celebrated our 4 year anniversary...and of course it was pouring rain! Mother Nature never seems to forget.....
We went for a nice Japanese dinner in West Lebanon at Koto's & Nate surprised me with some beautiful flowers from Emily at E.H. Floral {she did my bridal bouquet}...
It's crazy to think that in just four years we have built a house, had Marcus, have another baby on the way, I am able to sustain my business without part-work, moved into my photo studio, Nate has completed 5 triathlons...I'm sure there is something huge that I missed- but I was up all night with a 2 year old with a tummy-ache....Oh well!

Labor Day Weekend 2010

Wow! It's been a terribly long time since I've added anything to this blog {or my Rodeo & Co. blog either}...I finally have high-speed satellite internet again in Landaff {after I broke up with HughesNet for a while, I realized I really can't function 100% without them...boo!}
This past Labor Day weekend Andy & Maria came to visit from NYC {I had to shoot a wedding on Saturday, of course, but the rest of the time was relaxing!} Sunday the heat finally cooled off a bit & it was a perfect Fall day in New Hampshire. Grampa Pete & Regina came up for Sunday dinner and brought along their new puppy Hugo {who, coincidentally is as old as I am pregnant- 16 weeks!}

Love this silly face Sparky is giving Uncle Andy...
Do you think we could get him to smile with the puppy in the wagon? Nope. But it still looks cute.
