Carefree.


little friends
I have to say, that after the last few stressful months leading up to our wedding, I am thrilled to have a couple weeks of nothing to do. Of course by nothing, I mean fun things, like spending pool days with Scarlett, and entire weekends with Ty, bonding and having fun together. Those times were scarce before the wedding. But now....ahhhhhhh. it's all done and over with. I exhaled for the first time in awhile and we made no plans. Just played our days by ear. Doing whatever it was that the wind blew our way. This weekend, we had some fun times blow our way. We packed up with some friends and went out to explore. We found a cute little kayak shack. The place was pretty cute. Hammocks and paddle boards covered the grass while all sorts of different boats lined the shore. We made our way into the Tiki Hut to find some life jackets for the littles and then picked our boats. We brought a small cooler of goodies and drinks. Ty and I weren't sure how Scarlett was going to do sitting for 2-3 hours in a kayak in the middle of the water. But, she was very into it. She even asked to help Daddy paddle numerous times. Of course it took a few minutes of arguing ...eh, training to get Ty and I on the same page with the rowing. Ha ha. But after we figured out how to turn ourselves around and get moving, I have to say, it was a really relaxing, carefree day and we had so much fun.

We got back to the shore just as the rain showed it's ugly face as it has been doing often these last couple of weeks. Right next to the Kayak Shack was a convenient pizza place. Not your typical pizza joint. No, this one had probably the best pizza that I've had anywhere around with lots of organic options. The atmosphere was in their favor as well. With a brick oven located right smack dab in the middle of the restaurant for customers to watch their pizza being made, and a cozy seating area inside their bar/lounge, it was an all around great little pizza place.

The best thing about moving to a new place is going out and exploring. Finding new places to eat and fun things to do. We've been here in New York for over a year now and still we are finding new restaurants and activities. It's so much different than the small town that we were once accustomed to. We're pretty much okay with that.
