Linus: Week 61

Linus: Week 61

It’s been a tough week for us, and you can see a bit of it on Linus’s face here. I see this look and think, “Get that camera outta my face!” But maybe I’m reading too much into it. It…

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 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…

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…

Linus - Week 21

Linus – Week 21

Wow, week 21? How is that possible? Yen and I talk often about how short a time, really, it’s been since we’ve known this little guy. At the same time, he’s such an important piece of our lives that we…

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…

Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge

Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge

This walk is our standard one when we don’t have time to go very far – usually we tackle it close to sunset when we have just a little more energy left and need to get it out. It’s only…

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…

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,…
