This past weekend we really lucked out with some gorgeous weather. It was in the 80's on Sunday but the humidity was low and there was a lovely breeze. How to take advantage of such a glorious day?? Hiking of course! When David and I were first dating, we would go on a lot of … Continue reading Hiking Wachusett Mountain
After having a child, the holidays and weekend activities (see: Family Time at the Stone Zoo) become so much more fun and involved. We love introducing her to new experiences, and even though I know she won't retain much, it's just a joy to see her taking in her surroundings. Yesterday we attended a BBQ/pool … Continue reading Fourth of July 2018
Before I left work on Friday afternoon, one of my co-workers asked if I wanted two passes to the Stone Zoo. The catch though? They expired on Sunday, July 1st! I, of course, said yes and this ended up being a perfect weekend since David and I had nothing planned. We arrived a little after … Continue reading Family Time at the Stone Zoo
I think I've said this in the past, but I absolutely love how involved my place of work is in the surrounding community. A couple of weekends ago it was the Herring Run 5K, and yesterday we went to Charlestown for their Touch-a-Truck event. Since Eleanor is only 13 months old, she wasn't super interested … Continue reading Charlestown Touch-a-Truck

I thought it would be fun to drop on in here and let you know how life was going for this … Continue reading Life Update
Yesterday David had a fun afternoon, introducing Eleanor to the wonders of snow! And it looks as though she enjoyed it. 🙂 It's moments like these that make me jealous of him getting to stay home with her. But at the same time, I absolutely love my job. (Hopefully I'll get around to updating you … Continue reading Snow Day
I feel like having a little fun on this Friday morning, how about you? Since I dropped the ball on dressing us up for Eleanor's first Halloween (we were all sick for 2 weeks so my motivation went right out the window), I still wanted to do something festive. I had some wigs lying around … Continue reading Who Wore it Best?
