rustic connecticut

i once asked drew endy what the best thing to visit in boston is.  dryly, he replied, “the airport.”

christina and i have been doing a great job these past couple of weekends of getting out of boston.  last weekend, we took a day trip to northern connecticut.  only about 45 minutes away, we had a wonderful drive, watching the trees blush red and orange the entire way.

first stop: a maize maze.  (yea, remarkably clever.)  nevertheless, running around a several acre labyrinth of 8-foot high corn was surprisingly fun.

as well as unexpectedly challenging:

the rest of the day was spent playing with the big:

and with the small:

the day ended with a lovely wine-tasting at a charming family winery.  there, the grower’s daughter regaled us with stories of her father’s first forays into wine-making.  apparently, he’d stuff casks into unoccupied hallway nooks – a practice ended when the wine barrels started exploding.  (turns out when you filter out yeast from wine, you better be sure you’re doing a good job.)

stories like that make wine tasting fun.

    i remember back in like 5th grade or something… when I went pumpkin picking with you and your family, I had a great time stomping down cornstalks. It made me feel like a giant and the cornstalks was like a city, and I was just plowing through, destroying the city :)

    I don’t know it was back in 5th grade! I wouldnt have even known where we were going if you told me back then.

    It stings alittle you dont recall such an event whose memory that i cherish so much. I thought we were like this: X. =P

    I also remebered you falling asleep on my shoulder on the car ride back. It was like our first trip together!
