Colorado Maggie

Last week I headed out to Colorado to visit Maggie in her new house! A little unpacking, a little playing, and a lot of Grit (their dog) snuggling – it was SUCH a fun trip. And of course I took a zillion photos – enjoy!

Best buddies. Perhaps a bit one sided for now but I have a feeling once she can throw the ball Grit will fully appreciate her!

She also does this all the time and comes up with a faceful of hair – very sweet. Grit has been trained to stay in place and not move when Maggie is touching him – he is VERY patient with her and I can only hope that some day we can train our dogs that well!

Colorado Kids!

I had so much fun re-connecting with this Vermont family when I was in Colorado last week. They moved out there a few years ago and although I’ve been following pics of the kiddos through the magic of Facebook it was so great to meet them in person. They are quite the band of siblings and seem to get along very well – it’s fun to see their imaginations expanding and they were eager to show me around. Enjoy the photos!

Shelburne Farms Family Photos

I met up with this wonderful family two weeks ago when Tessa and her Husband were in town visiting her parents. She grew up on Shelburne Farms so we figured it would be a great spot to meet. Due to the excessive amounts of rain we quickly abandoned the beach plan due to blinding sun and a lack of beach and headed to the market garden and then the Farm barn – all great spots! It was fun to see her introducing her boys to her old stomping grounds and they were happy to explore and play.
