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…

A Big Adventure

A Big Adventure

It occurred to me later that I should explain this post. Yen was allowed to split his paternity leave, so he’s taking the second week now. All week they will have adventures. I am so jealous! -kj What’s this funny…

Linus - Week 12

Linus – Week 12

This week’s theme is: tummy time! Linus’s neck has gotten crazy strong. You might remember a couple of weeks ago I predicted he would roll over any moment. It hasn’t happened yet, and I think it’s ¬†because he’s been putting…

Marblehead

Marblehead

With David in town, we decided to pay a visit to Marblehead. It was a beautiful but chilly day. Here’s our little Go Baby all bundled up and ready to hit the road. Crazy after the weather of the previous…

Bear Brook State Park

Bear Brook State Park

Sometimes I just don’t think. It never occurred to me that driving north into New Hampshire on a Saturday morning in October could possibly be a bad idea. We were on our way to the Canterbury Shaker Village and barely…

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,…

New England Aquarium

New England Aquarium

I completely forgot to tell you we went to the Aquarium again a couple of weeks ago. Remember when we went to corporate night and it was totally deserted and we ate dinner with the penguins? This trip wasn’t much…

Hamlin Reservation

Hamlin Reservation

I do love a long weekend. We hosted a little party for the Fourth, which naturally took up the whole day (preparation, then party). Saturday I had to rest after such a full day. And then I was so happy…

Back to Maudslay State Park

Back to Maudslay State Park

I’m not going to lie: these outings are getting harder and harder (and slower). But we have to keep on. We couldn’t possibly spend these beautiful late-Spring weekends inside. I think you’ll agree when you see just how much green…

Oxbow National Wildlife Refuge

Oxbow National Wildlife Refuge

Dad, I don’t think you should read this post. Everyone else, you’ll see why later. I know we tried out Oxbow before, but I can’t find photos of it. I do know that the walk was very short, and that…

World's End

World’s End

We’ve been to World’s End quite a few times, but on this visit decided to take a loop we usually skip. It was a nice surprise. The weather was unseasonably warm on Saturday, and extremely humid. Later it rained and…

Long Hill Reservation

Long Hill Reservation

We were here last year, but that was September, and we wanted to see what it looked like in the Spring. It was a day of scattered showers, and it turned out to be very good that we were wearing…

Borderland State Park

Borderland State Park

This one is from a few weeks ago. Sorry for the delay! The weather is finally getting nice. Not a lot of leaves yet in this series, but it was nice to be outside. Not pictured in this post is…

Maudslay State Park

Maudslay State Park

Finally, some nice weather! Saturday we went up to visit my very tall friend Joe, whose boys are old enough now that they were ready to part with some of their baby things, and we were happy to receive. And…
