Linus - Weeks 52-53

Linus – Weeks 52-53

Looking at all of these¬†photos now, I can’t believe how much we did during these last two weeks! Linus has been using the potty regularly now for almost two months. I admit I thought Ba Noi was crazy when she…

Linus - Week 49

Linus – Week 49

Week 49 already?! Linus is growing too fast. Can’t we freeze him? We got him a couple of different sized balls to learn to kick and toss. He’s getting quite good at it, actually. Especially the tossing. He is so…

Linus - Week 48

Linus – Week 48

Linus had a very busy week, so no sense holding off on a post! First, he headed to a July 4 party hosted by our friends David and Yvonne. Linus does love a good party – after he gets over…

Linus - Weeks 45-47

Linus – Weeks 45-47

Linus had a lot of adventures during these weeks! First up, he’s really mastering walking. In this series, you can see him toddling over to Ba Noi. He’s obviously very proud of himself – and should be! We’re working with…

Photo of the Day

Photo of the Day

A sneak preview of the photos you’ll soon see from Linus’s weekend adventure. He discovered the fountain in front of the Christian Science church, and couldn’t get enough! Photo credit to our friend Neel. Don’t worry – the ones I’ll…

Mr. Linus Goes to Washington

Mr. Linus Goes to Washington

Remember a few years ago when we visited Washington and accidentally hit the cherry blossoms just right? We hoped we could manage the same thing again this year. We booked our tickets a little on the late side, thinking the…

Another Visit to the Aquarium

Another Visit to the Aquarium

We took a quick trip into Boston one rainy Sunday afternoon when there really wasn’t anything else to do. Here are Linus and Cha waiting for the train. Our destination was the aquarium, of course. They have some new creatures,…

Franklin Park Zoo

Franklin Park Zoo

After a very big lunch of seven-course beef, we headed to Franklin Park Zoo with friends. These first few photos are rather misleading, because there were not, in fact, many animals on display. Winter must be tough on zoos. They…

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…

At the Auto Museum

At the Auto Museum

Many, many years ago, David and I went to the Larz Anderson Auto Museum. We weren’t terribly impressed, but that may have been partly because neither of us is particularly in to cars. Last weekend our friends Tan and Susie…

Metropolitan Waterworks Museum

Metropolitan Waterworks Museum

A few people have recommended the Metropolitan Waterworks Museum to us. Huh? A museum of pumping water? But it was great. Yen left his camera in the car and regretted it. I think we’ll be going back again, surely when…

The Concord Museum

The Concord Museum

Mom visited us this weekend, and we wanted an outing for Sunday that was unique, but not so big that it would overwhelm Linus. We ended up going to the Concord Museum. They have all kinds of artifacts from the…

Winter of 2015

Winter of 2015

I’ve ranted quite a bit about this winter, and posted a few shots here and there. Given that we’ve officially broken the record for total snowfall this year, I thought I would do a full post on it. What’s incredible…

Linus Goes to Sedona

Linus Goes to Sedona

When we last left our hero, he was leaving Vegas and headed for Sedona. We got into Phoenix at 1:00, and originally planned to stop at the zoo before heading north. But after we’d gotten the rental car and loaded…

Linus - Week 23 (and Las Vegas!)

Linus – Week 23 (and Las Vegas!)

At week 23, Linus was resting up for before a big adventure. He’s getting very interested in activity centers, and toys that move somehow. He really likes turning knobs and banging things. Friday morning we all packed up our bags…
