Happy June!

We love the monthly free day at deCordova.

More Tinkergarten fun. On this day, the kids walked all over the park finding treasures — pre-hidden items that would lead to a lemonade-making party. Soren is carrying the bottle of water.

Last day of preschool at PCNS! I can’t imagine a more amazing preschool or more perfect teachers. Oh, how we miss that place.

Miss Amy and Miss Brenda were the absolute best. Sometimes I felt like they knew and understood my own kid better than I did.

The Hubbub Festival (run by the Boston Book Festival) was a hit, yet again. We met Huckle!

The Scooper Bowl is still my favorite day of the year. Soren agrees.

Ice cream heads!

Baby loves bath time! After about five minutes of him splashing like a maniac, I’m usually drenched from head to toe.

Had to freeze this moment with a photo so I could remember Soren’s thoughtful pause on the sidewalk: “Mom, did you know that before they had washing machines, they used a washboard? You dunk the clothes in a bucket of water, then scrub them on the washboard.”

This one is pretty embarrassing… I tried to record the sound with no video, but it didn’t quite work and I look ridiculous.

Berries!

Oh, that face.

Our CSA allowed free picking during the summer, so we made the haul to Western Mass to collect our goods. Strawberries were our main motivation!

Grumpy church face.

This was moments before I went over a bump, and Soren’s ice cream from Regina’s ended up smack dab on top of his head. There were tears.

Page and Everett came for a visit! Loved having them see our city and play for a few days. This is right before Soren almost drowned at Castle Island. Puddle Jumpers are now mandatory!

Ice cream at White Mountain.

Page taught the school kids at the playground a thing or two.

These two don’t even need me anymore! It’s awesome.

Posing like statues.

During a Boston Public Market picnic on the Greenway, I looked over to see that Shaw had gotten into a bag of potato chips and was practically inhaling them. He wins!

Soren and Ev at our beloved “fountain park.”

Even better with the scooter!

Grandmama gives the best baths! (Mom, do you have the original of this photo? I can’t find it anywhere — this is the Instagrammed pic.)

There’s nothing this one won’t eat! Chicken drumstick was a hit.

More goods from our PYO adventure: I picked, washed, shelled, removed strings and stems, and cut pints and pints of peas.

Why are babies always cutest when they’re naked?

Love the fat-baby crosse-ankles sleep position.

We spent at morning at one of the Harbor Islands. Look at this fatso!
