Believe it or not I found these oldies but goodies in my phone. Proof that it had at one point been nice and warm (and that I need to upload pix more often) Рand then POOF the season passed and we were back to big, warm coats and fires in the fireplace. This was our last excursion to the beach in late September, back at the place where we were married and where we now like to take the kids Рto keep it in our life and memories more long term. We had a chance to book some space there again for this upcoming summer and Рhow can we resist? The tradition keeps on.

These days the weather really seems to be warming up… maybe an early spring after all?

It’s the season for pumpkins again, yes? We learned this time around to NOT put our pumpkins out too early though … last year the squirrels ran off with one, and ate as much of it as they could. But eating everything flavored with pumpkin is my favorite past time… so I kind of understand.

I feel like last October we ran amok with wayyyyy too many pumpkin outings. This fall we are wrangling with a beast of a house renovation and tons of packing so this may be one of the very few pumpkin posts for this year. Let’s see how it all goes with getting out of Home Depot and into the fall foliage this month. Meanwhile here are some shots of our trip back to Hank’s, where we at least got a taste of the season (and some pumpkin and apple-cider donuts – yum!)

Our last grasp at summer… the waves were amazing, the blown sand made it all look like the moon. And we finally got to play with those incredible kites that grandma and grandpa got from their trip to China!

So instead of writing up a storm about all our goings on, packing up for a new move, watching the leaves change color … I’m going to post as many photos as I can and get back to working on that packing. So much packing. Meanwhile here are some pix from our High Holidays dinner out at the beach, and back at this lovely place where me and my husband were married. (thanks Loren Bevans for the last 2 pix!) IMG_3947 IMG_3948 IMG_3949 IMG_3957 IMG_3967 IMG_3971 IMG_3976 IMG_3981 IMG_3984 IMG_0080 IMG_0112

I’m pretty disappointed that we couldn’t return to the Hamptons Barn (where my husband and I were married, and where we have frolicked with family and friends in past summers). We had a summer full of work, and Jewish holidays came earlier this year.. making it near impossible to get out there for tomato season (and ya know how I love my tomatoes!) We did however try like h*ll to get out there for some pumpkin picking – although this year was not as warm as Octobers of the past so we really felt like we were harvesting crops before the winter cold comes! Hank’s warm Pumpkin Spice Donuts really hit the spot when it’s cold outside.

Have a lovely weekend!

Our barn had a big backyard to frolic in, with benches made of logs and ride-on toys strewn about. The kids loved playing with little animals on the windowsill, and I loved the overgrown ivy on the shuttered window in our loft bedroom. The nights were punctuated with s’more-making sessions and sweet sleepovers under mosquito nets. We will miss summer and the lobster, corn and tomatoes.
