February 23 – April 4, 2017

I’m sorry it’s been a while! We’re usually so busy dancing with them that we can’t stop to take photos. Mina is getting more interested in books now, though she still rarely sits still long enough to listen to a whole…

Marriott's Manor Club at Ford's Colony, Williamsburg

January 28 – February 5, 2017: Williamsburg, VA

For our winter vacation this year, we contemplated all kinds of warm places. Mexico? Costa Rica? Even Florida, which we’ve always promised ourselves we’d avoid. Then one day, Yen pointed out that all we really need is a place with…

Vacation Preview

We are still on vacation, but I thought I’d share a couple of early highlights with you. First, just a cute picture of Mina drinking a lot of water after swimming. She loves the pool! When we took a ferry…

December 21, 2016 – January 11, 2017

Linus is becoming a master chef. Everything I make is either stirred, sorted, or otherwise assisted by him. He’s even learning to break eggs (which has been tremendously messy, but he loves it). Here he is helping out with meatloaf…

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…

Worcester Art Museum

Worcester Art Museum

We’ve had a long stretch of bad weekend weather, but yesterday Yen finally reached his limit of puttering around the house. We took ourselves to the Worcester Art Museum. It turned out to be the absolute wrong day to go,…

New England Aquarium

Last night we went to Corporate Night at the New England Aquarium. We hadn’t been there since the big core tank was redone, so we were excited to do this. We were a little late, so we just caught the…

Now that the weekend is nearly upon us, I should probably get around to telling you all about las weekend. While house hunting has become our primary pastime suddenly, we are trying hard to squeeze in other activities so we…

Harvard Natural History Museum

Harvard Natural History Museum

I told you about one field trip during our staycation, but I’ve been lazy about posting the photos from our other field trip. The Harvard Natural History Museum is free for Massachusetts residents on Sunday mornings. We braved a blustery,…

Higgins Armory

Higgins Armory

I’ve been to Higgins Armory before. David and I went there in 2004 when he came to visit. After Yen and I decided on a staycation for Presidents Day, we put it on our list for a visit. Here’s what…

Washington DC (yes, again)

Washington DC (yes, again)

JetBlue had a sale on airfare, so we figured, “Why not?” Saturday morning we got on a plane and headed for DC, this time flying into Dulles instead of the more convenient Reagan. We decided that since we were so…

PEM and a bit of Salem

PEM and a bit of Salem

You probably remember that the Peabody-Essex Museum is one of my favorite local museums. They are currently hosting an Ansel Adams exhibit, and so we decided to head down late Sunday afternoon and take a look. It left us almost…
