Greetings from MA

Just a quick post to say we're having a lovely, relaxing time out East.

Unfortunately, we seem to be a couple weeks early for the fall foliage, which is a HUGE bummer to me, but what can ya do? The website I visited while planning this trip said peak was around Oct. 1. The woman we spoke with today on our drive to the "mountains" in Vermont said that they don't really start changing til around Oct. 12 or so. Arg! (BTW, I say "mountains" because they are so much smaller than what we're used to in CO. In fact, the highest peaks in MA and VT are lower than the elevation we live at. hehe.)

Anyway, we have had a couple days of rain, but today was beautiful. Tomorrow is also supposed to be nice so we plan to hit the Appalachian Trail for some hiking. :)

Ava has been an awesome traveller, both on the 2 flights to get here and with all the driving we've been doing. She is having a blast (despite cracking her head into the coffee table in our condo on Sunday - poor thing). She's being very friendly with Grandma and Grandpa (who are staying across the hall from us) as well as anyone and everyone we encounter in stores, etc. She sure is a friendly girl! And she's starting to say more and more actual words (not just signs). It's pretty exciting. :)

OK, I'm off to go soak in our jacuzzi tub. I'll post again later in the week or when we're back home.

Cheers! :)

Enjoy that trip. It sounds so relaxing. The highest mountain within a day's drive here is about 3000 feet (and I used to live at 6000 in the Springs, LOL!)

I'm so glad this vacation is going well for you and your family! Bummer about the leaves not turning at the time you're there.

You're in my neck of the woods!!! That person is crazy, though, that told you the leaves don't START changing until october 12th. We are usually at peak color by that point!

I hope before you leave you'll see some colors! I wish we could have gotten together, but next time you visit let's meet up!

Enjoy the rest of the trip!

Bill Bryson wrote a hilarious book called "A Walk in the Woods" about hiking the Appalachian trail. It's on my nightstand now. I'll be thinking of you tonight, but not in an icky way.

Glad you're having fun.

Marla... that book is great! I read it about a year ago, it was part of my reason for having to visit the trail. We didn't hike it long enough to get any real great stories, it was pretty and the terrain was much more agressive than we anticipated... I still want to go back and do a longer hike though.
