Coffee Bar and Bonfire

We constructed a coffee bar in our kitchen. Its so cute and perfect for Paul's machine and cups. I made some scones and muffins to celebrate the first morning with our bar. 


We had a wonderful weekend with all the Rogers family up here in the country. It was Bric and Anna's annual bonfire on Saturday and folks came from far and near.

Kansas City Wednesday

Headed down to the city midweek....half randomly.  

My in-laws call us the "Gypsy Couple" for a 
good reason. We sure don't like to let the grass grow beneath our feet.

Back home now but I am sure not for long!  :)

October Fishing

Sunday was a beautiful and unseasonably warm. Since Paul and I missed out on fishing all summer we heading to a little pond down the road and spend a few hours casting.
 We caught five fish total. It was a great afternoon. :)

While In Virginia...

We are home after our long summer adventure! Its taken a few weeks to get back into the swing of things here in Missouri and get our house all set up again. Autumn is here and we are looking forward to bonfires, pumpkins, and Thanksgiving.

Before we left Virginia we hiked the Massanutten Trail on the mountain near my parents. It was a 6 mile hike and it took most of the day. The fall colors were beautiful and we had a wonderful time!

We also got a chance to visit with Dwayne! He lives in the first house on my parents lane. It was good to chat and catch up with him.

Autumn in New York

We are home in the good old USA! We arrived on Wednesday evening after a long day of traveling. Its been wonderful spending time with family here in New York before we head out west to our house. 

Over the weekend we had the chance to do a couple different activities... 

We went apple picking over the weekend at a local farm. 

We walked over the fairly new walkway on the Hudson River.

Paul and I walked out to the Saugerties lighthouse.....

....and then checked out the Esopus Falls
