jumping for joy in a field of pumpkins



Sometimes I really rankle at the idea of being another suburban mom trekking her family out to the pumpkin patch just to take pictures and get a few pumpkins. But sometimes, it really makes my day. So, as you can see from the picture above, this trip to Rock Creek Farm, really made my day.











Sorry Elinor, this might not be your best photo, but you both look cute to your mama!

Netherlands Open Air Museum



One of the coolest day trips we took while we were in the Netherlands this summer was an open air museum in Arnhem (Openlucht Museum). This museum has many acres of authentic historical buildings, windmills, and exhibits.

I was obsessed with all things windmill when I came to the Netherlands, and this place really helped scratch that itch.
