We usually drive by the center of Kent Connecticut – but this time we got out of the car and checked out all the great sculpture that’s around. Some photos that I found in my phone:

We went back to gorgeous Connecticut and all the nature that it has to provide. We hiked around the Housatonic Falls a bit – which looked so much like the moon with fresh ice water running over it. The kids were real patient about posing for their dad’s photos – in some cases they even got into the Swiss cheese holes in the rocks for the shot!
Zoe loved posing as a wood sprite on tree stumps (her dad’s shot is better but my less professional version from my iPhone is below). We also explored a dairy farm where fresh chocolates are made from the cow’s milk! Of course this got us in the mood for some ice cream that came from another dairy farm down the road. How did Zoe fit that whole ice cream into her belly you may ask? Well, mom helped at the end.

We skipped off to the country for some much needed lake, tennis and blueberry picking . Somewhere along the way we found Michael Wainwright’s studio – where they had a day of free pizza, ice cream and ceramic painting/enameling that the kids loved! And of course we couldn’t miss a day at the Lime Rock again to check out some more speedy cars.

I have no idea why it took us so long to check out this race car track in Cornwall, Ct area – one that Paul Newman use to frequent, and that we can hear (wheels squealing on the track) from the ‘cation house‘ in the spring and summer time. It was a hot Sunday over Memorial Day weekend but the heat didn’t stop us (Ezra especially) from enjoying all the classic and current cars on display:

We hung out in Cornwall CT again with friends, and my boys were inspired to jump into the lake on New Year’s Day. I don’t quite understand this tradition, but they like it (and my husband has done the Polar Bear Club at Coney Island before so .. this one is more manageable for the kids it seems).
I’m not really a resolution person, but some things came to mind that I’d like to try to practice this year (no pressure, I’ll just try!)
– remember what great “partners in crime” me and my husband are to each other
– stop cleaning the house so much!
– have more dinner parties cuz hey, they’re fun
– don’t bark at the kids; no sense in making their day stink too..
– have patience
– stop eating and drinking things that just taste ‘eh’. If it’s scrumptious, then pig out and enjoy.
Here are some Jan 1 moments via our instagram feed:
