Apple Picking...

We went apple picking on Sunday at Indian Ladder Farms. They were only picking mac's... which are good for baking... but Martin is partial to Cortlands, so we will be going back again this fall. Cara and Em came with us, and it was a gorgeous day.

Luke's 4th Birthday

Last Saturday we went to my cousin Luke's fourth birthday party. We had a great time watching all the kids play, and hanging out with family and friends. Here are just a few shots...

Martin, Gary and Leslie...

The birthday boy himself:

Taking a swing at the pinata..

Dylan came with my parents and had a blast... he was sad to go home.

Charlie and his Grandpa...

Bath Time or Play Time?

Our evening routine now involves a bit of wind-down play in the tub for Charlie... he crawls down the hall and into the bathroom squealing with delight when he hears the tub running. Its too cute!

Playing in the play yard...

We got a play yard early in the summer and Charlie and I have found great use for it at the apartment complex. It stores nicely on the back deck and Charlie can play on the grass outside without getting into too much trouble.

New Pajamas

Sissy bought Charlie some new pajamas when we went to the outlets in Lee, Massachusetts a few weeks ago. He had them on two nights ago, and I had to get a few shots. Thanks again Sissy =)

Pool Time

The pool at our apartment complex closes after Labor Day, so we had to get one more swim in on Saturday while we could. Charlie really loved it! (per usual)
Here are a few pictures of our last "Summer Swim"


Martin had some fun with the camera at some point last week. I never saw these pictures before, but boy are they cute!

Thacher Park

The whole family (Martin, Charlie, Loki and I) went up to Thacher Park one evening last week and hiked the Indian Ladder Trail. Martin had never been there, and the overlook has some beautiful views of the Albany area. The trail goes along the Helderberg Escarpment and was originally used by the Mohawk Indians. We packed some sandwiches and had a picnic dinner after Martin got home from work. It was a nice evening, though it flew by rather quickly.
