Kaya hiked her first portion of the Appalachian Trail this week. She also enjoyed the beautiful scenery of Vermont in September (mainly by napping on the porch instead of the living room). Many thanks to Laura and Dylan for being excellent hosts and helping take care of Kaya. Tommy came up for the weekend and we spent Sunday at Dylan’s grandfather’s old hunting cabin at Tinmouth Pond (which they refer to as “camp” – apparently it’s a New England thing to call your cabin by the lake “camp”). Max reaffirmed his love-hate relationship with his new immigrant cousin Piolina. And Kaya outgrew her newborn diapers. Overall, a fine time was had by all.
