Upon a Mountain Top

Carter Mountain is a beautiful Orchard up on top of the mountain in Charlottesville. It has a fun little store that serves home-made dounuts and apple cider and all sorts of treats. All year long you can go up and pick fruit whether it’s apples or peaches or pumpkins or whatever. It’s beautiful and so fun to go to with friends and family. Kind of silly, but I always really wanted to have a baby in Charlotteville so I could go up there with him. I'd been up dozens of times with friends and their babies and wished I'd had one so badly for myself, so this time up was really sort of monumental for me. We took Alesha and Toby there and had a great time.






Alesha and Toby got Lincoln the cutest UVA Beenies and Socks. They really spoiled us this trip with all sorts of little gifts. Thanks guys!!


Poor Lincoln....we had him staring straight up into the sun in this shot.

Reading this post almost has me in tears. Truly a monumental trip to Carter's for you. I'm so happy Lincoln is in our lives. What a difference a year makes.

LOVE his face in the apple pic. Cute UVA baby!

Hi Cheryl ... What a great spot. I loved taking you and your little buddies to pumpkin patches and corn mazes in Iowa. I hope you take Lincoln to a nice haunted house. I know a good one in Urbandale.

Love Dad

Corn mazes were great fun weren't they? I agree. It's fun to do holidayesque things but doing it with a little kid is even more fun. I'd love to go to a pumpkin patch but don't really feel like there's much point.
