I just realized I didn't write anything about Jr's birthday and Halloween, both back in October!
So for Jr's birthday, I took him to the Historic Hudson Valley sites up in Sleepy Hollow. First we went on a tour of the Rockefeller Estate. It was beautiful and really interesting to learn about the Rockefellers. The first picture is of the front of the estate.
Then we went to a Halloween celebration in Sleepy Hollow, followed by dinner at Harvest on the Hudson. The restaurant overlooks the Hudson River, and we had a nice table by the fireplace.
On Halloween night, we went to the Van Cortland Manor in Croton-on-the-Hudson where they had the "Blaze" for the whole month of October. There were thousands and thousands of carved pumpkins. It was really amazing to see.
