Beartown Hike - Shire

We went on a "hike" with Grandpa around Benedict Pond in the Beartown Forest- this is the same hike that Em and I did on New Years a few years ago.

One of the highlights this time was seeing the Beaver Lodge in the lake and the trees that the beavers have been working on.

There was also a clear opening into the den... No beavers though.

Adventure Day Marissa

For our "Adventure Day" with Marissa we decided to be very Boston and to walk the Freedom trail. We started by hopping the T down to Park street and then finding the head of the trail there - it took us down to the waterfront where we stopped into the aquarium (and had a bit of lunch) and up through the North End before coming out around Fanuil Hall.

Hooker Entrance

Riss wouldn't stand by the sign for me to take her picture for some reason... so you just have to imagine.

Charles River Gosslings

As part of our stay-cation we headed down to the river with Mommy to meet some of the newest residents of Cambridge - the baby gosslings. We found three different families with about a half dozen little ones each.... We brought them some bread crumbs and the boy was VERY good about not chasing the mommas and babies.

Birthday Photos

these poor shots will have to keep you satisfied until I get copies of the photos that Grandpa Phil took. But until then here are some views of our rained in birthday boy and co. Since it was POURING and thundering we cancelled our planned playdate in the park and just pared down to family and the og playgroup kids in our apt. Gabe, Jack (also a birthday boy today) and Harriet joined us along with the Granparents N. and DGina Farah and Dori. We valiantly did our best to drink a couple dozen juice boxes and eat 4 bags of pretzels and chips. We got some good BBQ sandwiches from Coast Cafe and Mommy brought 20 special cookies from the cafe by her work.

Present opening time was a HUGE hit.

Thanks everyone for such a fun time.
