Back in October, my parents came for 2 weeks to visit us in Albany.  It was the best!!!  We had so much fun with them and were sad to see them go.  They were so helpful with the boys and the boys were elated to have grandma and grandpa staying in the "cabin" aka guest room.  We were able to go to Boston for a few days, drove up to Saratoga one afternoon, took a scenic drive through Vermont to New Hampshire, went to the annual Trunk or Treat, trick or treating with grandpa, shopping in the snow at the outlets, eating out, and took lots of pictures of leaves!  My dad was loving the fall leaves.  Ryan and I even got to go on a hot date one night while they watched the boys.  Bliss.  We don't get out much.  My mom cleaned up the house after we all went to bed every night and T was on garbage duty.  It was fabulous!  I just love my parents.  Thanks again for coming to visit us!

My dad and I went with Griff's pre-school class to a pumpkin patch.

My parents even got to be here for the first snow!  Griffy was pretty excited about it.

Griff's preschool had a Halloween costume parade.  I loved the lego.
Hudson discovered suckers on Halloween and was in sugar heaven!
T made us pull over for a pic in front of this tree.  He made me promise to put this picture on the blog.
We were at the museum one day and we got separated from my dad.  My mom said, "Where's Gramps?"  And Griffin said, "Probably taking pictures of leaves."  Classic.
Ben and Jerry's in Saratoga.
These ducks were not afraid of anything.  They were scavenging for any sort of crumb.
We went to an apple farm on my parent's last day here.  We got the famous apple cider doughnuts, fed the animals and took lots of pictures.

Can't wait for Christmas!!
