What is wilson silverleaf? We're organitarians; it's best for our bodies and the planet. We cloth diapered Nina for the same reason. We drive a hybrid car & wish we could afford solar panels on our house. I'm a strong advocate for homebirth, full-time mom, & also a movie junkie. We don't have a tv though; we watch dvds on our computer. We love contradancing. I garden & knit; Larry's a puzzle lover & plays fantasy football.

On the 11th, after Nina's Capoeira class, we packed up the car and headed up to upstate New York to see Larry's family. His sister and brother inlaw, grandfather, father's cousin, great aunt, and cousin all live in the town his father grew up in so we got a lot of family bang for our buck.

The drive up was so gorgeous--but let me digress from that a little as I give a little shout out to you Battlestar Galactica fans out there. Heehee.

Oh the foliage, each scene unfolding more breathtaking than the last. A point and shoot camera simply does not do it justice when wielded by me or Larry.

Nina's cousin Wil--sleeping babies LOVE it when you set off the camera flash in their eyes.

Nina had fun playing with Larry's cousin's fiancee.

For dinner we had an amazing chicken risotto and home-smoked salmon. Yum. And Anne baked a fantastic wheat free apple cake. Double yum, not too sweet, perfect topped with a little cream.
