It was a crazy busy week last week of movie premiers and parent/teacher conferences. We ran off to a friend’s house in the country to enjoy the foliage but it was covered with snow by Sunday! Here are some snaps from IG of some of the highlights :

We had shakshuka in the sukkah at cousin Stephanie’s house. What a treat! I do love this holiday and eating outdoors for what feels like the last days before the real bitter cold comes around. We feasted outdoors for lunch as well before hiking around Rock Creek National Park a bit. I guess I didn’t realize how many friends and neighbors can build sukkahs in their yards when you live in the suburbs. In the city I’d grown accustomed to just visiting common sukkahs in synagogues or if an apartment building was fortunate enough to have large garden space. And of course what’s best of all is getting to see cousins again for the weekend.

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.

During the last 2 days of Hanukkah we visited family in the Boston area – and after another session of gift-opening we got outside to do what Bostonians do: bump into history everywhere! We went to see the Wayside Inn while the weather was temperate and we could do a short hike around outdoors. Ezra loved seeing a musket loaded by a minuteman. And we visited a small schoolhouse where the poem ‘Mary Had a Little Lamb’ was written!

We are trying to take in all the foliage viewing that we can, before it’s gone. What are YOU up to this weekend?
