New England Fall weekend
We had one of the best family weekends we have had in a long time! The weather was perfect, the kids were relatively well behaved and we had some fun activities!! We started out by having a family game night on Friday. We were lucky that John could get home a bit earlier than usual so he could have dinner with us, and more importantly join in in the game. We played this. I don't know if any of you have played this before, but we had SO much fun!!
On Saturday we got up, had our usual Saturday morning breakfast of egg sandwiches (made by John - yum!) and got ready to go apple picking. We met up with some great family friends and what a glorious day it was! We got to the orchards before the crowds, picked apples, ate cider donuts, looked at the farm animals and then had time to go here to play on the beach. What a day!! The only downside was that I forgot my camera, so all our pictures from Saturday are from my phone....
This pig, which isn't in the photo, weighs in at 1,000 pounds! He is a REALLY big pig!!
Sunday was another absolutely beautiful day so we went here to watch a polo match. Every Sunday afternoon people come up, tailgate and watch polo. This was our first time going, and we had a blast. This isn't our tailgate, but I wish it had been. Next time....actually we all had so much fun we are going back in a couple of weeks.
We were able to walk around the field and see all the horses as well. What an amazing day!
