Small town celebration

This weekend we went to the 4th of July celebration in our town.  My mother lives across the street from where the festivities were held and her neighbors were all having a block party.  Unfortunately it rained most of the evening, but we had fun nonetheless.  Instead of fireworks, there was a laser light show.  We only stayed 15 minutes or so for that because we were cold, wet and tired.  Max declared it yet another best day ever.

Touch Tomorrow

We spent Saturday at WPI for a science festival.  Max got to drive a robot and I got to pretend that I was in college again.  Well, at least for the 3 minutes that I sat on the quad.  My mom took Max overnight so we spent the evening taking car photos and a few outfit shots, although I have to say I think that ship has sailed.  We wrapped up the night catching up on Game of Thrones.  We have the season finale left.  Friday can't come fast enough.

Wrapping up the winter

This should do it for old posts.  Not sure how I missed these because some of them are my new favorites, especially the ones of Max and his cousin Orrin.  My goodness those boys are cute.

Our friends gave Max the best Christmas gift, tickets to see the Wild Kratts.  Max was so psyched.  He even correctly identified a karakul.  This kid loves animals.

We also spent some time out in Western MA, one of our favorite places.  My brother had an art show so we spent the night out there.  Max took control of the camera a lot.  And he spent some time in front of it too.

Max got his first pompadour so of course we had to get a picture of it.  He didn't mind at all.

Summer in Spring

Today was a beautiful day.  So we went to the playground.  And took a hike.  And no, we did not go to the zoo...

Life lately

If you follow me on instagram, then you know that we go to the zoo, a lot.  We have a membership there and it is 5 minutes up the road so one of my favorite things to do is to pick Max up from daycare and head to the zoo for an hour or so.  Usually when we get there, there is no one else there.  I mean, literally, no one else and we have full run of the place.  Max knows where all of the animals are so he just runs from exhibit to exhibit, completely unaware how cool it is to be growing up at the zoo.

This past weekend we had a small party with some of my oldest and dearest girlfriends.  Growing up in such a small community, one that I chose to come back to as an adult to raise my son, has awarded me friendships and relationships that withstand the test of both time and distance.  It doesn't matter how long it has been, it is always good to be home with these girls.

And then there was our Memorial Day parade.  Nothing fancy, just a nice reminder of what the day is all about.
