photo of the day (father’s day edition)

Today was Father’s Day and my husband’s requests were simple: he wanted to spend time with his family and he wanted his kids to stay away from the computer for the whole day.

Zki and I are early risers and so we decided to get the kids up early as well and head out to the Elephant’s Trunk Flea Market located in New Milford, CT to see if we could find any treasures. I saw lots of things I wanted but managed to talk myself out of buying most of them. I don’t have enough room for the treasures I already have. Looking was fun though. The day was overcast and there was a breeze and so we made it through the flea market without dying of the heat. When the sun comes out there it can be brutal.

After our morning at the Flea Market, we headed up to Kent, a pretty little town in Litchfield County. There are always lots of bikers that ride up and down Rte. 7 in Connecticut and this gentleman was part of a group of them we passed eating at an outdoor cafe. I guess he was looking for some peace and quiet in front of the bookstore to make his phone call.

There are quite a few art galleries in Kent and the town is dotted with these amazing sculptures.

Clare found a comfortable spot to sit in beneath a very large chicken.

This is near the entrance to a gallery that used to be a caboose car.

This is the Kent Railway station.

We had a nice day but Zki needed to come home and pack for a short trip to Philly on Monday. Amazingly, the kids managed to find something to do that didn’t require them to log on to the computer. They complained about it, but made it through intact.
