Visiting Taza chocolate factory

Rishab visited Taza chocolate factory in Somerville, MA. This factory makes organic, stone ground chocolate in round shapes. Taste was also distinctly textured.

Rishab and Pragnya watched all their factory equipment and learnt the process of making chocolate from cacao to bars.

Its a cool breeze.. a spring song by Rishab

Its spring time again I went out with Rishab for an evening walk.

Spring time..

I just asked him to do whatever he wishes to and went on to click some pics of the flowers around. He started singing this song slowly. I asked him to continue singing and recorded it.

He is so sweet when he is just Rishab.

Prospect hill park, Waltham, MA

Rishab and I often go to Prospect hill park located in Waltham, MA. This view from the top often energizes me. Fall season made it all the more beautiful.

Not just the view from the top but also the path that leads there is equally beautiful.

Soccer field Waltham, MA

This soccer field in Waltham, MA on Trapello road is newly created and we hardly see any activity yet. While we were waiting for our friends, me and Rishab thought of checking it out.

Artificial grass over this soccer field felt very nice. I wonder why so many people spend so much of time maintaining their lawn & spray pesticides.

Chasing a turkey @ Waltham, MA

I took Rishab to my office on a holiday and we had to stay outside for some time. Meanwhile we spotted a Turkey resting nearby with her eyes closed. We went near it quietly.

It was fun for Rishab to follow my instructions and quietly move towards the turkey without waking her up. We went as close as we could and then Rishab couldn’t control his laughter. Turkey woke up and started walking away.

Rishab followed and soon they both started running around the trees. Turkey seemed to like being chased by a kid. It got tired after some time and flew away.

Houston Air show

Wings Over Houston Airshow is one of the top five airshows in the US, featuring civilian, modern military, and vintage warbird demos.

It was a spectacular display of airplanes. Rishab also got to get inside most of those planes.

This was my 2nd air show after India’s Airshow in Bangalore.

Horse riding at Old MacDonalds farm

Rishab tried horse riding for the first time at Old MacDonalds farm in Humble, Texas.
This farm had a nice little picnic environment where you could meet farm animals and feed them. It also had pony rides. Rishab was brave to try out horse riding all alone. I just stood aside and watched him.

I could clearly see his excitement. I am sure this was a different experience compared to the horse rides in carousel.

Apart from all kinds of farm animals they had some adorable animals including deer one of them was taking rest on this hot sunny day. There were many more roaming around.

They had couple of rabbits of different colors. Rishab felt that only the white ones are clean.

It took Rishab a few seconds to feel comfortable among these occasionally jumping goats.

Rishab also chased a peacock around the farm. Looks like that peacock was used to kids chasing it, so it didn’t run too far but just far enough to get away from Rishab.
