Getting good and dirty
Sometimes we like to just drive around. Often we talk alot about architecture and I especially find what I call "sad houses" (or barns, schools, etc. . .) fascinating. These are once beautiful, amazingly crafted, abandoned buildings. Think of how much work went into this and the people who lived their lives here.
Abandoned stone school.
Vermont is beautiful.
Lots of fun with leaves!
We also had a WONDERFUL little family get-together in Manchester, NH. We stayed at a great hotel, visited lots, ate great food, and went to three museums!

Cousin Ada and Joseph at dinner. This was a moment of calm. Not Joseph's best behaved day, but we pulled through. He was only under the table a bit ... (I swore I would never let that happen!)
