For the love of outdoors

We love living so close to the mountains. Within 5 minutes, we are on hiking trails in the Ramapo range and can really enjoy all that the outdoors has to offer. We enjoy hiking at the Ramapo Reservation but lately there have been so many black bear sightings that they closed the trails for everyone's safety. We've found that Campgaw Mountain, just around the corner, is just as pretty and has equally challenging trails (not too challenging though, with the kids in tow).  Greg and I love going and hope that by bringing the kids, they too will have an appreciation for outdoors and enjoying nature.

Halloween 2015

This is one of the first years that Joey knew immediately who he was going to be. "HULK. That's who I want to be this year, Mom!". Well, that was easy! We got a Hulk costume and then it was on to trying to figure out what Chris would be. He has always been a tough one. SO MANY CHOICES. And not to mention he is getting older and not really into being superheros or movie characters anymore. So, this year he was a zombie hockey player. Anything to get to wear that New York Rangers jersey again.
We enjoyed Halloween in true NJ style- we had lunch and treats at our friend's house, and began trick or treating at 3pm. Yes, they start soooo early here! What a blast, though!
