After The Storm

2011 Dutchess County Fair

The family had another wonderful and successful year at the Dutchess County Fair, our Ayrshire cattle won many a blue ribbon, and the whole family, except Sarah and Hannah, was able to participate in the many fun events of the fair.

The Pine Tree State

This past weekend, Jacob, Luke and I drove to Maine to visit college friends. The highlights of the trip included: attending the Topsham County Fair, watching a draft horse pull, observing the logging industry, finding moose, tubing and skiing on the lake, enjoying our hosts' wonderful hospitality, spending time with both old and new friends.

Home Plate Ice Cream

There is nothin like ice cream on a beautiful summer night. Due to my summer prize winnings at the town library, I was able to take Isaac, Allie, Rebecca, and myself out for some ice cream at Home Plate, the popular town source of ice cream.
