August 2021

You’ve probably never even noticed, but I tag each of these posts with the kids’ age at the time so we can look back and say, “What was Mina doing…

April 15 – May 24, 2019

Poor little Sleep Lord! He’s been taking a lot more afternoon naps lately. We’ve tried putting him to bed earlier, as well as wearing him out in the evening. But…

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…

Linus – Week 8

I can’t believe how quickly eight weeks went by. As I write this post, I’ve returned to work and miss Linus terribly during the day. But let’s not think about…

Hike at Weir Hill

We’re venturing farther and farther from home on our little weekend hikes, working up to maybe trekking up to the White Mountains in a few weeks. Starting to figure out…

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…

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…

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…

Weir Hill and Bánh Xèo

What I didn’t mention in the previous post is what we did after we finished our outings: we ate bánh cuốn. This is one of Yen’s favorite dishes (he has…

Long Hill

Saturday was a really beautiful day: blue sky, a little breeze, and temperature in the low 70s. We got up early, drove over to Arlington to pick up Yen’s mom,…

Wedding

I’ve been waiting an awfully long time to write this post, and not just because Yen took a very long time to download the photos (he has a good excuse,…

Low-Key Weekend

We stayed close to home this weekend – sorry about that. We had some social obligations and the weather turned a little colder than it’s been. And with the hurricane…

Bartholomew’s Cobble and Bash Bish

This weekend’s trip was to the Berkshires. We started with Bartholomew’s Cobble, a place we’ve both been wanting to cross off the list for a while. It’s definitely out of…
