Over the weekend, we took a trip to one of the sunflower farms in our area. A lot of people don’t realize just what a beautiful state New Jersey is. There is so much to see & do here, especially in Northern New Jersey where we live. There are so many beautiful farms nearby and late summer into autumn is my favorite time to visit them. We’ve got lots of plans for the coming months including apple picking, pumpkin picking, and farm & farmer’s market visits.

Visiting the sunflower maze was the first check off of our “Autumn To-Do List.” We met up with our friends and had the most beautiful morning exploring the sunflower maze. Roman had a lot of fun on the hay ride, too. He has his own little John Deere tractor at home, so seeing the real, big ones in-person is always a treat for him.

After the farm, we headed to The Chatterbox for lunch. It’s a family-owned fifties style “drive-in” restaurant that has received lots of awards & has been featured on The Food Network. It was our first time there and it really lived up to the hype. The food was delicious & the decor was spot on. I didn’t take any pictures because lunch out with our dynamic duo is really a feat in itself, but we had a fantastic time. (It was also our first time ever taking Marina out to eat and she did great!)

I hope that you had a fantastic weekend, friends. Here’s to the beautiful week before us.

  1. That close-up photo of you holding your babies….gaw!!! Gotta frame that one. Makes me realize that I need a photo of me holding both of my babies…one that isn’t “selfie” style with my lame phone. You look amazing 🙂 You can see the relief in your eyes from the improvements you’ve been experiencing with Marina. You’ve got a gorgeous family, Mama 🙂 xoxo -Misty

    1. Thanks, Mama! Definitely feeling a lot of relief over here & I’m really happy to know that it shows. Sheesh… what a time it’s been. We had so much fun at the farm & I love those rare opportunities when I get to be the one on the other side of the camera!! 🙂

  2. I love these family photos, they are so important to have you and look gorgeous. Your skin looks amazing. I hope you aware, though, this it is not Autumn!!!!!!! It’s summer for like 20 more days or something. It’s in the mid 90s all week in New Jersey, far from Fall!

    1. Haha!! Absolutely and I’m in NO RUSH to see summer go. The hot weather can stick around as long as it likes. Thinking about winter makes me sick — loving this Indian Summer. 😉
