It's Apple-Picking Season!

Well, summer is officially over, but autumn does bring some fun things. . .
like apple-picking!

We headed off to the Royal Apple Orchard
(aka Smolak Farms in North Andover)
to pick some Macs and Cortlands
and to find a good jack-o'-lantern pumpkin.

Peekaboo behind the apple tree!

Mommy guiding me through the apple orchard.
Notice how, when I'm not in the hiking backpack,
Daddy makes sure the diaper bag is.

The King triumphantly holds his prize - a beautiful, ripe red apple!

Do you think I can get the whole apple in my mouth in one bite?

Trying to show the Queen Mommy how to pick the best pumpkins.

The Royal Babbo and I in the pumpkin patch!

Maybe this pumpkin would make a good throne. . .

What will the King grow up to be?

. . . a future Ringo Starr?. . .

. . . or a future Cy Young Award winner?. . .

. . . or maybe just a professional puddle hopper?. . .

. . . only time will tell!

The King tries his hand. . .

. . . at creating fine art.

All of this without any art lessons, folks!

This will be worth money some day!

Summertime Adventures. . .

On my Uncle Mark's motorcycle. . .

(Mommy always knew he'd be a bad influence on me!)

At the Bronx Zoo. . .

. . . and of course I must always be attended
by at least two of my subjects -
one for each hand!

Here I am test-driving a camel as a potential
addition to the royal transportation system.

The royal family on the monorail!

Here I am plotting how to steal the carousel and bring it home. . .

At Long Beach. . .

It's always ourselves we find in the sea!

At White Post Farms. . .

On a ride with a good old friend, Tigger!

Chillin' with Mommy, watching the fish.

Feeding the goats!

More to come soon!!

Our little puddle hopping king!

At least someone is enjoying the wet weather we've been having!
(That would be me, il re Tomassino!)

A Day in the Country

Today Mommy, Daddy and I took an excursion
through Arlington's Great Meadow,
a large wetland with lots of wildlife and hiking trails.
Here are some pictures to document our journey!

We started out at Brigham's, where I happily enjoyed
my milk and a hot dog as an appetizer. . .

Now I am eagerly awaiting the main course:

Next we went to a farmer's market
across the street from the Great Meadow.
I thought the flowers were really pretty!
I wanted to pick one for my mommy,
but she wouldn't let me.

This was the beginning of the hiking trail.
The water was all covered
with strange green ooze!

A pretty tree. . .

Mommy guiding me safely through the tall grass

I am excited to get on our way!

The sign that leads into the forest. . .

. . . and the path that leads through the woods.

Taking a little break on the gravel!

"What's that, Mommy?"

Hello everyone!

A pretty purple flower

Me and Daddy, heading out to explore.

This little fellow came out of the swamp
to say hello, and to get warm in the sun.

He's coming in for the layup!

A Walking King!

Ignore that bit at the end where I fall down. . .

. . . I meant to do that!

I'm baaaaack!

Sorry for the long delay in posting, everyone!
It seems my royal subjects here in the palace
have been slacking off a bit.
But, I am back!

Here I am combing my hair in preparation for the first royal haircut!
My mommy was trying to do it for me,
but she wasn't doing it right.

Here is my Nonno with the clippers.
You can see how much I trust his abilities.

A new car! Along with my train and my horse,
the royal transportation system is complete.

One of my first times on a swing.

Babbo says he wants me to play baseball eventually,
but for now soccer is my game.

Lookin' hip.

Down the slide in the playspace at Burlington Mall!

Mommy's coming! Run away, folks, run away!

A Royal Birthday Feast!

On January 28, 2009, I turned ONE YEAR OLD!
Mommy and Daddy got me a Pooh cake to celebrate,
and I really loved my first taste of chocolate!
