Winter Time Fun!

Time for the goodies!
We recently took a winter time trip to celebrate an early Christmas with family and to check an item off of the bucket list.
The visit with family was filled with fun, food, and lots of game playing.  Usually card games are the main focus but this time it was Monopoly. We also baked (read that as ate) several dozen cookies and were entertained by the new grand cat, Stanley.

What, you ask, was the bucket list item? 
Drum roll, please.

It was a trip to upstate New York to visit Woodstock and Cooperstown, home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame!!

The village of Woodstock, as many of you know, was not the actual site of the famous music festival in 1969 (that was the town of Bethell) but none the less, who doesn't want to visit Woodstock?

A philosophical statement.

Just had to stop by and purchase
a tie-dyed pair of socks.

Lots of peace, love, and
you name it, in Woodstock.

After taking in the sights of Woodstock, we continued on to Cooperstown. Arriving in the late afternoon we took a quick walk around downtown, located the museum, and proceeded to eat dinner in what is possibly the smallest diner ever.

The teeny tiny diner.
Great food and friendly folks.

The next morning we awoke to snow! Not to be deterred from our mission, we made our way to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Even if you are not a baseball fanatic, I think you would still enjoy this very well organized and informative museum.

And, I highly recommend visiting in the "off" season. We practically had the place to ourselves and the staff had time to talk with us and answer questions throughout our visit.

The Hall decorated for Christmas.

How many can relate?

Once again, how many can relate?

That's it for now.
