A Bride, Baseball and Blacksmiths in Cooperstown

Last weekend we headed to Cooperstown for a wedding. Even though Max had yet another cold, it was great spending time as a family out in the country enjoying the gorgeous fall foliage.

Saturday morning, before the wedding, we visited the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Max had to get on Daddy’s shoulders to see some of the exhibits.

Our friends Tiffany and Chris were married in a cute historic church located in a fun Farmer’s museum.

The museum had other attractions we visited on our way out. Max was entranced with the fire and banging at the functioning blacksmith shop.

Max’s first carousel ride made him laugh.

The reception was held at the lovely lakeside Otesga hotel. We enjoyed the views from the back deck.

He did some finger zapping (currently one his favorite things to do) with the beautiful bride.

After a nap upstairs in the hotel room. Max came back down for one more congratulatory hug (and to sample some of the famous local apple cider donuts.)

On the way home we stopped by an apple cider mill and made Max pose for many silly photos.

The fresh air helped cure Max’s cold, and he was a wonderful passenger during the six-hour ride home. We miss the gorgeous scenery, but we are looking forward to a fun fall in NYC.
