fun, family & foliage ~

We went out to Amherst to visit the Big Guy this weekend

Gorgeous weather and a beautiful view overlooking the valley of the Quabbin Reservoir in western Massachusetts

Big Guy and his sweet girlfriend plotting our course through the awesome corn maze!
It was based on The Odyssey, and the "eye" was a camera obscure ~ very clever.

Luckily we had him ~ always up for a challenge and took to finding clues without a hitch
(no wonder he's an Eagle Scout.) He didn't get his sense of direction from his mum.

My two goobers ~ always ready to ham it up for the camera!
I found a few kernels in our luggage...hmm, wonder where those came from?

The Little One always connected with her trusty cell!

Fabulous weekend ~ love it out there, so beautiful especially this time of year! Shopping in Northhampton was great ~ fab shops! No luck finding a vintage prom dress for Silver Bella though ~ could-not-zip-them-up ~ ugg! We also biked the Norwottuck Rail Trail. I think it's our new favorite, and so pretty riding past farm after farmland.

Now back to work ~ getting ready for Silver Bella!
