Oct 10 – Nov 5, 2016

Mina is an incredibly feisty lady. She just doesn’t hold back! Her hair really had begun to get out of control in October. Of course we usually tame it with a little barrette, but this is what it looks like…

Vacation in Acadia

Vacation in Acadia

Mina is very excited about standing up these days. She’s officially “cruising” – meaning she creeps around the house either by pushing things so she can walk behind them, or by holding on to things and moving along. She’s still…

Linus: Week 59

Linus: Week 59

Yen and I have decided that we should post photos weekly if we possibly can. That should make everyone happy: he has fewer to process, I can actually remember the events in the photos, and you get to have a…

Beach Sunset

Beach Sunset

Here’s a sneak preview of our weekend on Cape Cod. We stopped at the beach one night after dinner to watch the sun set. Here Linus and Cha are checking out an airplane. Linus is terrific at spotting them. Such…

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…

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…

A Regular Sunday

A Regular Sunday

I was driving home Saturday afternoon and saw a herd (flock?) of turkeys standing in someone’s yard. I thought, “I wish turkeys would hang out in my yard!” I really should have wished to win the lottery. Sunday morning I…

Mount Watatic

Mount Watatic

Continuing our exploration of the Wapack Trail, we tackled the very bottom this weekend, Mt. Watatic. I’m going to rank this one #2 out of the site (Ted’s Trail to North Pack gets #1 status). It’s very short, not too…

Dorr Mountain and Great Head (Acadia National Park)

Dorr Mountain and Great Head (Acadia National Park)

We started the morning off with breakfast at Morning Glory Bakery in Bar Harbor, then headed over to a rental shop to see about some sea kayaking. There were several groups ahead of us, and we heard over and over…

Acadia Mountain

Acadia Mountain

Remember how a few months ago Yen and I suddenly got married because our families both happened to be in town at the same time? One of the activities we had planned when they visited was a trip to Acadia….

Greeley Ponds

Greeley Ponds

There was so much color on North Pack Monadnock that when we got up Sunday morning, we decided maybe we should drive on up to the White Mountains to see how they’re doing. It’s a good thing we did. This…

North Pack Not Really

North Pack Not Really

The alternate title of this post is “Making the Best of a Mistake.” Yen picked out North Pack Monadnock as a good hike for us many weeks ago, but life kept coming up, and we didn’t have a chance to…

Pawtuckaway

Pawtuckaway

Joe has been going on and on for months now about how great Pawtuckaway State Park in New Hampshire is. Sunday we went up to check it out ourselves, and found that he’s absolutely right. We only tackled a very…

Mt Washington (Area)

Mt Washington (Area)

Yen is in Hawaii (probably a topic for another post…), so you’ll have to forgive the quality of the photos you’re about to see. As I was packing for the annual company outing to the Mt Washington area, I almost…
