Linus: Week 58

Linus: Week 58

Yep, still flying that plane! This sight has become very familiar. Linus has a series of Thomas books that are really for a much older kid. But they’ve become his favorite, and I have to read them over, and over….

Another Drumlin Farm Outing

Another Drumlin Farm Outing

We are becoming regulars at Drumlin Farm. You should probably get used to seeing regular photos of it. It’s so close to our house, and nice for a little outing, so I think the visits will continue. We had company…

Drumlin Farm (now with snow)

Drumlin Farm (now with snow)

Slightly warm weather? Ok, let’s go to Drumlin Farm again! Linus put on his red pants for the occasion. You can see that the snow is starting to melt. I’m happy to report that as I write this, we have…

Drumlin Farm

Drumlin Farm

All this time, there’s been a little farm/zoo right down the road from us. Well, about 20 minutes away. But close enough. I’m talking here about Drumlin Farm, another of the wonderful Mass Audubon properties. It’s a working farm, but…

Linus - Week 11

Linus – Week 11

It’s hard to believe that just a few (well, eleven) weeks ago, Linus didn’t enjoy his bath. Now it’s his favorite evening of the whole week. We’ve finally figured out the right formula for making his bath a happy time:…

Linus - Week 8

Linus – Week 8

I can’t believe how quickly eight weeks went by. As I write this post, I’ve returned to work and miss Linus terribly during the day. But let’s not think about that; there are adorable photos of an adorable baby to…

A Walk at Habitat

A Walk at Habitat

The weather this weekend was very strange. The forecast kept saying rain, so we delayed doing anything, and then we’d see that it looked good, and rush out before it changed. In the end there was very little actual rain,…

Excursions

Excursions

Yen has been collecting random photos over the last few weeks. None has really been enough for a post on its own, so we’ve put together a post on these random excursions. The first excursion was to IKEA (not pictured)….

Wachipauka Pond, Webster Slide Trail, Doane's Falls, and High Ledges

Wachipauka Pond, Webster Slide Trail, Doane’s Falls, and High Ledges

We packed a lot into this weekend. Still searching for the best fall leaves, we started by heading north into NH. We knew that the Whites are pretty much past peak, so we went west and stayed a bit south,…

Cape Cod

Cape Cod

I’d been to Wellfleet twice before, once with Dad where he bought me my first Mass Audubon membership, and another time alone when I really had nothing better to do on a Saturday and headed out alone. I’d never ventured…

In Which I Feed the Birds

In Which I Feed the Birds

Almost forgot about these photos! They’re from a little jaunt we took with good ol’ Joe, who I miss working with beyond my capacity to describe. The weather was nice and sunny, so we all met up at Ipswich River…

Moose Hill

Moose Hill

Raise your hand if I’ve taken you to Moose Hill? Ok, everyone put your hands down. Yes, it’s a regular haunt of mine. But if you have been there with me, we probably went on the Turkey trail out to…

Stony Brook

Stony Brook

Here we go with another Audubon sanctuary. I was really looking forward to this one because the guidebook brags about its boardwalk system, and I have never met a boardwalk I didn’t like. This is a really good one, so…

Broad Meadow Brook

In the continuing effort to visit all Mass Audubon properties, I tackled Broad Meadow Brook out in Worcester today. I have seriously mixed feelings about this property. It is not terribly large, but it has a huge visitor center and…

The Challenges

I’ve added two new pages that you can see over on the right: The Mass Audubon Challenge and The Trustees of Reservations Challenge (which should probably actually The The Trustees…). These are lists of each of the properties of these…
