How now, brown cow?


To celebrate Daddy's 40th birthday, we headed north to the Boorn Brook Farm in Manchester, Vermont. The place was gorgeous and serene and peaceful, and the owners were so gracious and made us feel right at home.

A few highlights were:

Mass at the Weston Priory held in an open-sided barn. The monks sing most of the liturgy, and God added his own music with the rain that fell (and occasional thunderclaps!)













          Hanging out Marcy and Roger who visited from Albany









        Relaxing in the vast rustic barn




        Exploring the farm and talking to the animals





















        We can't wait to go back when Annabel can run around and chase the animals. Sophie has even been invited for our return trip.

        Vermont was the coolest. Scott got a lot of neat scenery shots of red barns and cows!

        Mesa showed me how to do the blog background - it's from thecutestblogontheblock.com. I made the banner in Photoshop.
