Fall in the Country

I totally crashed a guys trip last weekend, packed up the poodle and tagged along with the fiancĂ© to visit our good friend Andy in Baltimore. We started the trip at a ridiculous BYOB sushi joint in Fells Point called Asahi Sushi. We woke up the next morning, after a lot of sake, and drove about 20 miles outside of the city to the beautiful country. Fall looks completely different in the country - the colors are brilliant! After a gorgeous hike in the woods with the pups, I joined the boys on the golf course to be their cheerleader. Really, I just drove the cart and laughed when one of them chucked the ball in the water, which happened more than a couple times. It was way more entertaining than it sounds. Guess you have to know these guys. Check out the pics below which were all taken with my iPhone!

Apple Picking

Ever since we moved to D.C., I've been dying to go apple picking! It's just something kids growing up in South Florida don't get to experience. However, I do have fond memories of riding around in my grandfather's golf cart going orange picking! Nevertheless, I was really looking forward to apple picking this fall season. The weather could not have been more perfect so we rented a car and ventured out to Larriland Farm after reading great reviews. The apples were plentiful and we got to pick several different varieties including Braeburn, Stayman and Fuji apples. We also went home with some fresh broccoli. And of course, we had to stop by the market for fresh, ice cold apple cider and fried apple fritters before heading back. All in all, totally worth the trip!

Visiting Kingsmill Resort

Thought I'd share a photo collage from a recent trip to Kingmill Resort in Williamsburg, Virginia. We spent the weekend here with Mark's parents, two of my favorite people. We went sailing on a schooner (think pirate ship!), took a beautiful bike ride around the entire resort, played golf and even had time to shop at the outlets. Kingmill is about 2.5 - 3 hours from Washington, D.C. and the drive was beautiful because all the leaves are just starting to change. During our next trip, we will have to tour historic Colonial Williamsburg. This time was mostly reserved for just enjoying each other's company.
