Yes, I am moving but never fear it is a quick leap to the new platform over at Blogger.

I am ironing out the kinks but I hope to be up and running by Monday with a bunch of new ideas, recipes, and a new layout.

This past weekend we headed down to Washington D.C. to see one of my best friends and college roommate, Ellen get married to Mr. Wonderful aka Mark.

We were footloose and fancy free having left Oliver in the capable hands of Meme and Papa T. It was nice to have some time together just the two of us.

The wedding was beautiful and I do not think I have seen two people smile as much as Ellen and Mark did on their day. They danced and laughed and we were all just there to bear witness to their joy. It was a treat to watch. I also got to spend time with two other fabulous couples in our life; the Carter’s and the Direnfeld’s.

And then as a bonus we met up with Liz and her daughter Cecile for a stroll around Old Town, Alexandria before heading to the airport and home to our boy.

Just in case you needed clarification.

This past weekend when Grandma was visiting we went on an apple picking excursion. We went back to a favorite and popular orchard called Honey Pot Farm in Stow, MA.

It was a slightly overcast day but that did not dampen our spirits from trekking through the orchard in search of the tastiest apples. We were able to pick Empire, Cortland and the even a few Macintosh (although Matt and I think they are a sad excuse for an apple, always mealy).

Oliver climbed every ladder he could get his hands on and he thoroughly enjoyed filling up his bag until it was too heavy to carry without dragging on the ground.

Back at home we made the apple crisp from the recipe I noted before. I’ll be honest, mine did not look as gorgeous and crispy as the recipe photo and I was feeling a little bummed. But as soon as we tasted it, it was a winner.

Apple picking, a definitive New England experience.

We are taking Ollie apple picking tomorrow so of course I have been scouting for the perfect, mouth watering apple crisp recipe. I think I have found the winner from psheart blog (http://psheart.blogspot.ca/2013/09/tasty-tuesday-apple-crisp.html).

If mine ends up looking as nice as the picture above i will gladly post a picture.

Happy fall days!
