We started our April with a party for the 75th anniversary of our beloved “Make Way for Ducklings” at the actual Make Way for Ducklings store in Faneuil Hall. First up, craft time.
Then face painting.
And the highlight of it all was when Soren was interviewed for an NPR story. We didn’t think much of it and didn’t see anything on the NPR site for a few days, so we figured the story didn’t run. But a few months later, a friend said he’d heard Soren on the radio! Here’s the audio clip:
Obligatory stop at Boston Public Market for a Saturday morning donut.
No one dotes on my boys more than sweet Mimoza. She built a little nest around Shaw to keep him from falling over.
Five months old!
Marathon Monday! Soren insisted on bringing the flag from our bike trailer. Kids are weird.
I love this family candid.
“Mom, there’s a man called Radiohead. Have you heard of him? We should listen to him.” Where did this kid come from?
Someone is learning how to spell… (and no, he didn’t barf).
Soren and Shaw got the storytime lady all to themselves for a little while at the MFA. We didn’t see much art that day.
First popsicle! Almost 4 years old — does that make me a bad mom?
Tim is good to force us outside on Sunday afternoons when we mostly want to lie around and do nothing. This day we walked around Hale Reservation in Westwood.
As he points to each one: “This is my water, this is my juice, and this is my alcohol.” What?!
Exploring in Menotomy Rocks Park.
a few of my favorite things
Family, chocolate, Boston, books, writing, beaches, restaurants, my boys, libraries, cooking, editing, summer — these are a few of my favorite things.
