This last week we rented a sprinter van and headed up to Vermont with some friends, the Davis family (I am sure you read their blog). They headed home early and we went to Woodstock for an extra day. It is the cutest little town ever!! On our way there we detoured and saw a couple sites and then laid low at the hotel. We stayed at the cutest Inn called On the River Inn. They had a pool so David took Atticus swimming and we tried getting him more comfortable with the water. He used to LOVE it but somewhere along the way he got really scared of the water. David played some games with him and by the end he was doing kicks and trying to jump in on his own :0 (scared face).

The morning we left for Vermont, Atticus woke up with a cough and I dont think he was feeling very good because he kind of had a rough weekend. The only reason I really wanted to go to Vermont was because I have been dying to take him sledding – I thought for sure he would have such a blast but he wasn’t terribly into it haha. He just sort of smiled and watched and laughed as he ate snow.. but I totally thought he would be flipping out! It made me think how funny it is that us as parents spend so much time and effort into some things we THINK they will just love only to find out they aren’t into it ha. That has happened a few times with crafts I found on Pinterest and tried to make for him (like who doesn’t love green slime or cornstarch and water or foam etc… ?! a cardboard box or train is much preferred!) But I think next time we sled when he is feeling a little better he will like it more….. hopefully. This last day in Woodstock he was feeling better and was a LOT happier as you can tell 🙂

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! xo

    1. Hi love!! Thank you so much for the sweet comment 🙂 I am so glad you are following along!!

  3. Aw, that’s so fun to get away with family and friends. Poor Atticus that he wasn’t feeling so good! And that’s funny about the sledding! It seems like every little boy would have a blast sledding, haha! Maybe next time!

  4. Your family is adorable. My daughter, a wedding photographer (AbiElaine.com) who is based here in Woodstock, follows you and showed me your blog trip here. Wish you came in to our store so I could have met you and yours. Woodstock Sports. Next time stop in to say hello. All the best;))

  6. Hi Amber,

    Just wanted to let you know your contact captcha doesn’t seems to be working correctly. I have refreshed multiple times and it will not let me enter the input. I found your blog after one of my friends shared it with me on Facebook and wanted to run a few things by you. I have some nursery projects that I’m working on which are right up your alley. Let me know if you have a moment to discuss. I would love to discuss this if you would like to send an email over!

    Thanks,
    Cassandra

    1. Thanks so much Claudia!! We loved it!! I hope you have a great rest of your week!! xo

    1. Thanks Nikki!! We loved our stay there 🙂 And no way?! How fun!! You will love it!!

  9. I absolutely LOVE reading about your little family adventures! It looks like you are just adoring life in NYC, and loving it even more now that you have a little baby girl 🙂 Thank you for being open and sharing your daily life with your readers! 🙂

    1. I am so glad you liked the post!! Thank you!! And yes, we are loving it 🙂 Especially being in our new apartment!! Thanks for reading Torey!! xo

  10. What a fun family trip! I love seeing your adventures! My daughter is the same age as Atticus and then our baby girl #2 is due in three weeks! So our families are similar in age. How did it go traveling with two little ones? I’m interested in how your nights went and if you all stayed in one room? We have some travel coming up and I’m trying not to stress about it, but travel can be tough on sleep! Xoxo

    1. Thanks so much Julie!! And no way?! How exciting!! Congrats to you!! 🙂 Our kids need to have a play date!! And it went good!! We will sometimes use the closet or bathroom at night for the baby if it is all one room. It can get tricky though!! You can always call the hotel (if you are staying in one) beforehand and see if they have a crib or pack n’ play too so you don’t need to bring one! Enjoy your trip!! xoxo

  11. I absolutely LOVE Vermont this time of year, and what a fun trip to take with friends! I’m happy to hear Atticus got back to being more comfortable with water, and I’m sure he’ll find a love for sledding when he feels better. Love these photos, it’s amazing to see Rosie changing so much-she’s gorgeous. Have a great week Amber!

  15. Your story about Atticus reminds me of the time we took our oldest son to Disneyland for his 4th birthday. We spent WEEKS pumping him up. The day came, and he was cross, and tired. Finally, mid-afternoon he melted. “Mama!” He wailed

    1. The last part of the story deleted: ‘mama! Why did you invite all these people to my birthday!!!’

  16. Absolutely adore your Instagram and snapchat! Your children are perfect and your life is one I aspire to have one day. I remember first discovering your Instagram on the popular page before Atticus was born! It’s so cool to see him grow up. Warms my heart to see you all enjoying life this much.
