Autumn in upstate New York!

I am back from our trip! Did you miss me? 😉 We had an activity-packed week spending time with the boy’s extended family. It was like a mini family reunion. And by mini, I mean 13 people total, which doesn’t seem like much until you’re trying to coordinate everyone in the morning or get seated at a restaurant, haha. We went to a spa, and up a scenic overlook and to cute little lakeside towns, took a train further upstate for the views and shopping, spent time hanging around his uncle’s house, went to an apple orchard to pick apples and ended up doing a wine tasting since they turned out to be a winery, too. It was a very autumn-y trip all around. And we ate A LOT. There was lots of eating out, but also lots of taking turns to cook at his uncle’s house, plus the owner of the B&B cooked breakfast every morning for those of us staying there. I’m not sure I’ve ever eaten so much delicious food in one week before. But we are back in ATX, and reunited with a puppy who got spoiled at doggie day care boarding, and I have some fun pictures to show you:

We spent a lot of time at his uncle’s house, which is also home to these monsters, appropriately named Brontosaurus and Allosaurus.

How was your week? Is it autumn-y where you are?

  1. Ha, those are very appropriate doggy names. New York is so beautiful. I’ve only been to the NYC part of the state, but pictures like this make me want to explore a little more. It’s finally feeling like fall here (Chicago), too. It was weirdly warm for a while, but the leaves are changing for real now. Yay!

    1. Right? They really are like mini dinosaurs. So huge.

      This was my first time being in the non-NYC part of NY, it was nice – very scenic! Our leaves are still all green here in Austin.

  2. Very lovely! I haven’t been to upstate NY in a long time.

    As I live in Massachusetts, it is very Autumn-y where I am. I love this time of year, I wish it lasted longer

  3. I grew up in Houston, and we used to come to AUSTIN to get fall leaves! 🙂 But having lived in Massachusetts I agree New England etc. has it better.
