you should click on the video after it starts to go to you tube and then make sure you watch the high quailty one.
So one time on our way to ikea in New Haven we passed this very strange very large lake- it has this huge damn at one end and just seems very eeerey for some reason. Anyways we decided to go check it out. It was a beautiful setting and we had a great time. The highlight of the trip was we decided to kayak up to the top of the lake where this river was rushing into the lake- it had some small rapids but it also had some very large rocks in the way. Kev decided to go play around in the rapids and after getting up some confidence decided to paddle up farther and then come down the river into the lake with the rapids. hahaha this is where is gets funny. We just have leisure kayaks we dont have skirts for them or anything- anyways the current ending up turning kevs kayak sideways which then made him get pinned by a rock, which then filled up his kayak with the rushing water, which then made him flip over, which then made he start screaming that he was loosing the car keys as the current took kev and his sinking kayak rushing down the lake. Oh man it was funny to watch.

so it has always been a goal of mine to go to a cave/cavern they always just seem so cool to me. SOOO one of things we decided to do last week was go to Howe Caverns- it wasnt like the biggest and best cavern ever but it was fun and very cool to see. Our next Cavern will be Carlsbad Cavern in NM its like 2 hours from my dads observatory out there. Anyways- its cool cause there is a river down there and you get to take a boat ride on it once you are down there. My pictures came out really bad kev took better ones- once he gets them on to the computer I will put them up but for now these will have to do…
so kev was on a much much needed vacation last week and it was the best week we have had in a long long time. It was just so wonderful to get to spend so much time together. I felt like we hadnt had that time together since we left hawaii. Being married is seriously the best thing ever- he truly is my best friend. I loved every minute of last week- he just makes me laugh all the time and we just have so much fun together. ok ok ill stop being mushy anyways our first vacation weekend started with having our House Warming Party!! it was a great great time- unfortunetly I was to caught up in the fun that i didnt take one picture the entire night. There were lots of friends, food and a very long and hilarious game of catch pharse around the camp fire. We had a few sleep overs that night and the next day we all ended up going to jiminy peaks to the adventure park there to go down the alpine slide. I have never been down an alpine slide so i was quite excited! and it was awesome!! Very Fun!! The rest of our vacation week went like this…
Monday: Raining relaxing day- watched movies and ate pizza
Tuesday: Howe Caverns, Mini Golf, Great Barrington Brewery
Wednesday: Kayaking Trip to CT
Thursday: Birthday shopping Framingham followed by amazing fun in Boston!
Friday: Hanging out with the Richardsons heading back to the Berkshires
Saturday: Birthday party for Casie
Sunday: Church- and date night Mini Golf and Dinner out
We really like mini golf in the summer!
Here are some pictures from Jiminy Peaks and the Alpine slide.

haha so i dont remember when the last time i posted this video was but it deserves to be posted again. It cracks me up- I am sure because we made it it’s extra hilarious to us but come on- its funny!! We made it for a 48hour movie making contest in hawaii. It was very stressful and was way rushed but it came out great for what it was and we were robbed at the contest- stupid local loyalty. anyways enjoy.
so we got to see She & Him at the folk fest which was my favorite part- they were amazing. If you dont know who they are yet then you should go and listen to them because i love them!! Go now- Zooey Deschanel has to be one of the cutest people alive. We also got to see Jim James from My Morning Jacket perform solo which was awesome. We saw Jakob Dylan which was also awesome- and then the best surprise of the day and one of my favorites were The Young@Heart Chorus. They were absolutely unbelievable!!! If you havent heard about them before they have a website and you can youtube them -but they are a chorus from Northampton made up of 70+ yrs men and women and they cover songs like The Ramones, Radiohead, the Talking heads, The flaming Lips etc… They did this awesome version of Purple haze. It was so heart warming and entertaining to watch- I couldnt get enough. It was so so good.

So the other weekend me and kev and linds (friend from high school) went to newport for the weekend to go to the Newport folk fest. It was a great time- we got to hang out around newport, sleep on a sailboat and see lots of great music. We spend sat. at the folk fest and then on sunday we walked around the mansion walk on the coast. Its really very beautiful there- also alittle to snobby but oh well still fun!
so here are some more house picures for ya to check out. We have a bit more furniture now- no quite there but almost. We absolutely love it here- we love the furniture we got and how everything is coming together. I think its a good mix of kevs real modern tastes and my more vintage taste. I am going to have to get kev to take some nice pictures for you all to see- my camera is not like his.

so erica came out to stay for the week last week. We had a good time and it was nice having a partner in crime for the week while kev was at work. We had a great dinner one night outside- our new BBQ is amazing!!! and we love just cooking out and then spending the rest of the night by the fire. One day me and erica went and check out bash bish falls. Its the highest waterfall in MA. It was very beautiful! We tried to go swimming in the pool there at the base of the falls but the water was so freakin cold- it was to painful to go in more than our knees. I dont know how people were swimming in it. Anyways after the party on saturday we are bringing everyone that is staying over there for a hike.
I so should have posted this way earlier BUT a superbowl ad that kev designed for trump vodka got selected to be shown in Dynamic Graphics Magazine!!!! How exciting for him!!! We saw the magazine in Borders the other day- hehe!! I am very proud- its on page 71 if anyone sees the magazine at a bookstore. The month might be over soon- but the cover has a girl standing in front of a wall looking up at a spray painted silver bird on it.
Go see if you can find it.
Here is some pictures of kev doing his husbandly homeownery duties…
