Oh how I love New York! Brian and I visited upstate New York right after we were married (3 years ago!) and I fell in LOVE. Since I grew up in a desert, I wasn’t used to so much green! It actually exists! We had such a fun time visiting Brian’s family and introducing Ellie to upstate New York. We oohed and awed over the darling houses, fireflies (FIREFLIES! My first time seeing them!), and the beautiful green. We happened to be there over the fourth of July, so Brian’s mom hosted a big family party. Ellie met her great grandpa and great aunts, uncles, and cousins for the first time! I don’t have too many of them at the party, we were too busy eating, chatting, and laughing, but I did manage to get a few of Ellie and her cousin Logan before the party. Oh how they loved Grandpa’s raspberry garden. Pretty sure they ate enough raspberries to make a pie!

    She looks so happy with Logan! Love how she loves the boys in her life so much! Maybe she's setting the stage for her teenage years…. 😉

    I love upstate NY! I'm going this weekend (from Boston) for the Pageant and to do some antiquing and rambling around.

    I am jealous of all the green there. Everything here seems a different color of beige.

    These pictures are perfect. Ellie is perfect, (that outfit!) and you guys are perfect. Seriously too cute! So glad you had such a good time.
