Ski Sundown. Papa and the boys hadn't yet skied the snows of our own state, so we thought it might be worth the try.
Mohawk) this weekend; but, everyone was sick, so we just celebrated Papa's birthday in our usual low-key way.

Happy New Year! Since it's still, technically, the first week of the New Year, I don't feel like this is late getting out. Having thought about all the fun we had in 2013, we figured that we would try to make 2014 even better. The Pups and I originally thought it would be an awesome new year; but, upon further reflection (and honestly, the need to come up with another adjective), we decided that we would make it MAGNIFICENT! We are going to do a bunch of MAGNIFICENT things this year, we are going to record it (photograph it), and we are actually going to blog about it, so we can actually remember it next year. Funny how that works, huh?
I used the excuse of having clients to photograph to take a few fun shots of the pups for new year's. These hams will never be shy in front of a camera, no sir.
Happy New Year! And stay tuned for magnificence!

We had some fun adventures over this past weekend. Papa's Papa (you know, the dad of the one I am married to) flew in from the west coast for a visit; and, he and I went with a group of my photo friends from RISD to New York City. We Started out at B&H Photo, and then hit the PDN Photoplus Photography Expo.
There were vendors, seminars and a bunch of awesome. Also, Papa's Papa got to meet Julianne Kost; which, if you are really into Adobe products, like we are, means something to you.
From there we went to the 9/11 Memorial and then to the Strand book store.
It was a day packed with destinations and interesting and reflective things.
On Saturday, the pups had their last day of soccer. Seal Pup 2.0 “kicked the ball 5 times.”
It may not seem like the biggest deal; but, for a while there, all he did during scrimmages was turn his back to the ball. He often mentioned that he “love baseball,” which is great…since he was playing soccer.
To be fair, he might actually love baseball. I guess we will find out in the spring when he actually plays baseball (and not soccer). Seal Pup 1.0 got to try his hand at goalie (ha, you see what I did there, oh, nevermind). I think he is a fan.
While the boys were finishing up soccer, I went to the Salem Public Library’s fall book sale and bought 73 books for $21. It was kind of awesome. The pups certainly aren't complaining (guess who got all the books).
On Sunday, we took a trip to Clyde’s Cider Mill.
We got to see a old fashioned cider press, ate cider donuts and drank hot apple cider. It was a New England kind of day!
