Strawberry Picking in North Hadley, Massachusetts

440 views

Last weekend my boys and my Dad headed out to North Hadley to where I go and pick strawberries every year. They are fairly well priced ($2.50 a quart or $20 a box) and if you bring a good army to pick you can get lots in a relatively short time. The field is pretty good sized and while this photo is deceiving there was a pretty good sized crowd there picking with us. Since I had to … [Read more...]

  I love that we live close to the bike trail. They finished it at the end of last summer and this year we are really putting it to good use!

Isn't he the cutest little thing? I love that all the … [Read more...]

I was super bummed out because I had to cancel a trip to NYC for an event over the weekend last minute due to lack of childcare. Being home for the weekend opened up other possibilities for us though. It was the last weekend Six Flags New England was running their season pass specials and I wanted to take full advantage. We haven't been since Johnny was Gavin's age and I wanted to go back but … [Read more...]

I went to Florida for a week and didn't tell you. I know, I know but we do it for security reasons. There is just something about announcing hey I'm leaving my house unattended for a week that doesn't sit right so I'm telling you know. So if I seemed a bit stressed or didn't post as much- that's why. Of course a few of you caught the location stamp on some of my facebook posts ;) I still have … [Read more...]

When we got there we spent most of our time in … [Read more...]
