Been having a grand ol’ time hanging out with Michael and Katrina! =) We get along so famously! Saturday, Isaiah had taken the day off and Michael and Katrina were bored so we all decided to be bored together. lol! We ended up going to the Boardwalk for a COLD walk!
Beavers had chewed down this tree over the walkway and Isaiah being in such a chipper mood decided to be a beaver…
look at his work! =P
Michael pushing the tree off the walkway
it was really flooded!
not sure if it has gone down at all from the hurricane
still so breathtaking tho. I just love the vibrant colors!
totally cool design in the sand from the weather
It was a nice brisk walk that ended up in a trip to the new Chiptole that opened up! *yay* then back to our place for a movie! It was a fabulous day! =)

so… I actually have a good excuse for not blogging… not that I don’t have anything to blog about… just haven’t had time. =) we’ve been on vacation in New York last week and this week has been getting back into routine and me editing a bazillion and half photos! =D which is all good.
Anyways… We left last Monday for NY to stay with some friends. =) Isaiah even drove the whoooooole way there!
I love this man so much!
New York countryside. It reminds me alot of Indiana… altho a lot more hills.
CORNFIELDS! Funny… never would have imagined I’d miss cornfields… but I do.
We got to George and Katie’s in the afternoon in pretty good timing too! George wasn’t home so we sat on their gorgeous porch waiting for him talking with Katie and Sam. When George got home, Ben and Auslyn came over, we talked more, then played a game of croquet in which Sam efficiently whipped all our butts at… then had cookout for dinner. After dinner, everyone was dying to watch the Wedding dvd and George and Sam’s duet of “I Need You Now” bwhahaha! Afterward, Isaiah, George, Katie and I had a fabulous time talking as married couples! SOOO NICE!
It was rainy and chilly the next morning, we hung out in the house with our coffee and the Chillins’ who are most adorable btw! =)
Georgie with his lil’ boat.
♥ Isaiah with lil Eleanor ♥
she’s such a content sweet baby! awwww!
the view from their porch!
After lunch, and the guys went and got fish bait, we headed over to Aunt Julie’s. In which I got to meet the other family members that didn’t get to make it to the wedding and the guys went fishing.
what a catch! oh and the fish too!
After visiting and fishing for awhile, we headed back to G&K’s to eat the fish for dinner!
George showed Isaiah how to fillet the fishys.
While the guys were filleting and Katie was cooking it up, I played trains with Georgie! He’s so cute!
he was so proud of himself for getting that train to stay up there!
isn’t he so adorable?!
So we ate and the fish was really good! We all liked the sunfish more than the bass! After dinner we had some drinks and watched a movie and then stayed up late talking and laughing again! good times!
The next day was beautiful out so we decided to go to the Falls and take a hike. Oh man! it was phenomenal there!
Top of the falls.
Looking down… wayyyy down!
they have a rare species of snails that is only found at Chittenango! how cool is that!
the magnificent Falls!
It was just so amazing there!
I told Isaiah to go inside the fence! LOL!
totally love this lil’ guy! =)
the stream the Falls fall into.
such a sweety!
I’m not sure what it leads into but its fun to think about.
Just an incredible place really.
so we hiked the Falls and man, there were some pretty steep parts! it was so fun tho! definitely an experience I won’t soon forget.
Elsie and Maggie with a caterpillar.
After that hike, the kids wanted to play a lil’ at the park, and then we were all pretty hungry, so we headed back to town and went for pizza which was pretty good!
waiting for their pizza! =)
Someone is tired from the hike! awww!
after pizza we got back to G&K’s and watched a documentary about fly fishing thus making Isaiah and George want to fly fish. lol! so they went to the beaver pond to practice but ended up coming back to the front yard to do it instead. lol.
Then we went over to Aunt Julie and Uncle George’s for dinner and visited with them and watched the Wedding dvd for the second time that week! oy vey! =P it was so nice to visit!
The next day Isaiah and I went with Aunt Julie and Annie to Syracuse to go shopping and had a great time! =)
♥ my lover and me ♥
*note: I was too busy having fun that there are no more photos… which might be for the better and preserve the dignity of those whom I was with! *
We got back to G&K’s and then headed back to Syracuse to go see Cowboys and Aliens… that is one mall trip I shall never ever ever forget… everyone, especially Sam, were extremely “happy” and just made this trip at the mall the most interesting ever!! =) We had some time before the movie started so we walked around the mall, kinda got kicked outta a $.99 store, and grabbed dinner at Johnny Rockets! goooooooood times! =D then saw the movie which was pretty good! Came back to G&K’s and watched Avatar and had some drinks. Twas one of the best vacation days ever!
The next and last day of our vacation, Katie, Sweet Eleanor and I went to the mall again to have a girls day out while Isaiah and George went fishing. When we got back, it was late so we headed back home.
Truly was a fabulous vacation! We had such a great time up there! It was especially wonderful to be able to have George and Katie’s company. They are such incredible people! Thus ends our vacation… whew! =) had such a blast!
This post should keep y’all occupied for a while, right?! =P LOL!

I’ve been making good use of my Nikon nowadays! =) I’m loving it! We went for a walk at our favorite place the other night after Isaiah got home from work.
I so love our lil’ family!
really cool cloud striations
Isaiah picking blueberries… he was like that for like 5 minutes! LOL!
tree root steps
I think its so cool how the roots are spread out all over
Ash Leaf Spirea
the cool moon
the Boardwalk is one of the best places to see the amazing clouds!
course the river is pretty amazing too!
more wonderful cloud coverage
the clouds and their colors are just so beautiful.
One of my favorite flowers at the Boardwalk is the Ragged Robin
Isaiah and his mosquito cover aka his UCONN shirt
inside this is a grub of some sort
such a beautiful place!
I have to say how proud I am of myself… I researched and identified all of the flowers I photographed. And let me tell ya… it was a feat! took a couple hours, but it was all worth to feel this way for finding it out! =)

And we sure didn’t let it get away! We had 2 days of amazing weather last week… IN THE 60′s! w00t! I was very very happy! So was Isaiah… seems we are both solar-powered! So of course we went to The Boardwalk. While it didn’t feel as warm there with all the snow, it was so nice out! So my Love and I took our baby, Swift and walked the entire Boardwalk that fine fine day. While Isaiah was hanging on to Swift, I was of course, snapping some photos of that beautiful place.
The sun trying not to be swallowed by the ominous darkness.
This leaves me speechless… Kenton said it looked like waves… I just stand in awe.
“it’s melting… m-e-l-t-i-n-g!” w00t!
Just a lil’ bit of spring
love the colors coming through the blandness
Love the blue sky and red bushes against the white and brown.
this is like basically what winter is… simple yet beautiful.
I just think this is a neat tree…
One of my favorite spots of the Boardwalk…
Whiteness with a touch of color
there’s those clouds trying to hide my sun again!
ahhhh! a gorgeous sunset!
A beautiful last look of the Boardwalk!
oops! someone missed the buried boardwalk! haha… it was quite funny to watch him try to get outta the hole too… LOL! He was having Swift pull him… I was far back that by the time I got to him, he had gotten out.
Isaiah felt he was missing out, so he had to get in on the action!
And of course no walk at the Boardwalk is complete without a “SuperUs” photo…
♥Isaiah: “this is where she belongs!”
Me: “I do fit kinda perfectly!” ♥
