All Young

We're all young at heart here at Fiddle Ridge... that includes our photographer, Richard, as well as all of us who range in age from 1 to 49!
It is a rare occasion that we are all together these days. Careers, family, and location all present their own challenges. Last night though, everyone was able to spend the night out at our house and we had a really nice time this morning fixing breakfast, playing, and then eating together. As you may imagine, Avery is our focal point and we just love watching him explore his world.
The day is well under way now. The boys are off to do chores at Bryan's property and Jen has headed back home. My parents and Richard's parents will be coming over later and we'll enjoy a nice lobster lunch... that will be a lot of fun too.
Keeping in close touch with family helps keep me young. My children, nieces and nephews are up on all the latest fashion styles, language and activities... I get first hand accounts of what's happening in the 'real world'. Working helps me stay abreast of current trends too. And probably the most important tools in staying young at heart are having a postitive attitude and an air of expectancy and wonder, no matter what is going on.
All Young is listed in the Phillips Collection of Traditional American Fiddle Tunes.
