Back to Connecticut

At the beginning of this month, we took a trip to Connecticut and New York. We did this same trip almost exactly two years ago. Although this time we reversed the trip. We flew into New York on Saturday and headed to John and Louise in Connecticut straight away since logistically it worked out better. This time the trip was a bit different since there were two new kids since last time. We had a wonderful time, as usual. It was fun to see improvements and how much the landscaping had changed since we were last there.

John and Eloise sharing a sweet moment book reading.

We went on a hike one day to get out of the house and explore.

Mae and Harriet are exactly two years apart had a great time together. Mae went back with John on the train on Sunday night so we were there with Louise and baby Olive until Tuesday.

So we did a little sightseeing on Monday. We went to the White Memorial Conservation Center, but we forgot to take pictures. The girls really liked it and they had an interesting museum about nature geared towards kids. The weather was a little iffy so we didn't hike around at all. We drove to the nearest big town, Litchfield and tried to shoot Eloise out of a cannon.

Action shot! The girls loved hanging around the house and playing with all the new, fun stuff.

Some new landscaping on the grounds.

Harriet loved baby Olive.

We went out to ice cream in Bantam. Weird tidbit, the Arethusa Farm Dairy is owned by the people who own Manolo Blahnik. Really diversifying, I guess.

On Tuesday we headed to Brooklyn, but before we left Connecticut we came across this weird structure.
