Connecticut, here we come!
We've actually been home a few weeks now, but Millie and I spent a week visiting my dad and Melissa in Connecticut. It was sooooo great to be back "home," visit with friends from high school and have Millie play with grandpa and nana. I didn't realize, but I really missed the place! Here is Millie and nana at Beardsley Zoo.
Later in the week, we got to visit a farm and Millie got to ride a horse, go for a wagon ride and just run around the farm with her new friends. She kept telling me she was now a "farmer girl." I am so glad my dad arranged this with his friend from work. What a great morning. Take a look a that huge horseshoe pile! The owner of the farm is in the business of horse shoeing horses...hope I said that right...
Checking out the horses.
Millie and Grandpa !
Hiking in the park near home.
Playing at the Creative Playground in Brookfield with my high school friend and her children!
Downtown Brookfield (where I grew up.)
Elephant Trunk Bazaar, by far the best flea market I have ever seen. This has been going on every Sunday in New Milford since I can remember. I hardly ever went growing up, but now it was a real treat to visit. (next time I staying for longer and going in with a wad of cash...)
Having fun at Lake Quassy!
We'll be back soon!
