I now have three children, Annabel (5, and who starts kindergarten this year!), Mason (2), and Vera (1)! Our family is all out of town so we end up doing long road trips several times per year, but other than that we're homebodies who try to also enjoy the many fun events in our beautiful area! We love Hudson, and that's thanks in big part to moms group, which has helped me discover so many fun parks, restaurants, kid-friendly events and organizations, etc!!
