We got semi-serious in the spring about looking at houses. I attended a few open houses, we narrowed in on one neighborhood, and then we started making offers!

The preschool moms breakfast was the sweetest!

Soren was not feeling the music program.

Our fun Tinkergarten class continued through the month. Is Soren attacking a kid here?!

One Saturday we ventured to Copley to see Robert McCloskey’s daughter, Sally, do a reading of “Make Way for Ducklings.” So fun to hear backstory on the book — like how Bob rounded up a few ducks to look at while illustrating, and kept them in his bathtub in his NYC apartment.

Soren can be a bit of a bossypants know-it-all (he takes after his mother in many, many ways), to the point where he believes he can control traffic.

Few things are more glorious than the first warm days at the playground each spring.

Shaw LOVED his first ride in the swing.

I had to document this dinner, because how often is a meal so monochromatic — and totally unintentionally?!

More Tinkergarten fun.

Menotomy Rocks Park is a new favorite!

Soren’s preschool had a family picnic one night, complete with a petting zoo!

For my birthday, we spent the morning doing some of my favorites. Public Garden first.

Oh, these brothers.

Soren totally mastered the scooter and hasn’t looked back. I’m LOVING this new phase.

He also decided he loves bashing into things while scooting.

More Tinkergarten fun.

Here, the kids were painting their “bindles” with DIY paints made from fruits and herbs.

Bindles complete.

Taking them on a hike to search for treasures to put in their sacks.

This is how Shaw does Tinkergarten.

Soren totally got his head stuck in the fence at Hardiman Park one afternoon. How does this even happen? First I took a picture, and then we worked to resolve the issue — Soren was totally panicked. Fortunately, a friend was there and knew just the trick — you have the kid walk the rest of his body (sideways) through the fence posts. Easy peasy!

Our first Walden day of the season!

I love putting this baby in the swing. He’s happy to just hang out on his own!

Tim and Soren disc golf day.

We took a trip to Butter Hill with my parents for a nature weekend. Thank you, Pappy, for taking both boys exploring!

Always together.

Nighttime reading of the most giant Richard Scarry book ever.

Made a quick stop at the New England Ski Museum on our way to our morning hike.

Taking the tram up to the top of the mountain.

This hike looks like it’s easy, right? Turns out it was actually the hike of death (especially considering we had to carry two kids)!

A little post-hike cool-off.

So fun to spy black bears in the backyard.

Secrets with Pappy.

The Cabot factory in Vermont wasn’t too far beyond the church we attended. Here, Pappy and Soren are checking out old farm equipment.

“Moooo!”

On our way home from New Hampshire we swung by Kimball Farm for our first banana split of the season.

My three favorite boys.
