Upstate

Meet your new BFFs, the Bean:  Uncle Franklin and Auntie Eleanor.  We were just reading some books about infant sleep when your papa hopped up from the cushy bronze bench to snap a quick pic.

Also note that your mama hauled you up a snowy, icy incline to catch a peek at a frozen mountaintop lake— but she wore appropriate footwear to do so.

Finally, know that your papa plans the best weekends away, where the three of us can snuggle up in stocking feet with heaping plates of steak, kale, and citrus-fennel salad and read the Little House Cookbook while it rains, like a gaggle of goofs.
