Wet Day In Boston

While my parents were in town they kept the kids so Nathan and I could go to Boston for the day. The weather turned out to be lest than ideal but we made the best of it and saw as much as we could. Since we haven't ever gone to Boston we really wanted to start with a history tour. I found a discounted trolley tour on Groupon and we hopped on and off most of the day. 

We started at Paul Revere's house but for some odd reason it wasn't open for the day. After that we walked over to Old North Church since it was close. The church was beautiful and we happened to get there just in time for a short history presentation. 

We ended up around Chinatown around lunch time so we had some very yummy Vietnamese food. After we were nice and full we walked over to Boston Common and the Public Gardens.

We almost missed one of our buses because we were trying to find Mrs. Mallard and her ducklings. I wanted to get a picture for the kids since Make Way For Ducklings is one of their favorite books right now. 

Our trolley tour came with a boat tour of the harbor. It was very wet and foggy but we still heard a lot of interesting information and it was a neat seeing Boston from the water. 

Quincy Market was our last stop before catching the subway back to our parking spot. We were ready to get back in our warm, dry car and head home by the end of the day. 

Next time we want to take the kids and let them see the Public Gardens and Mrs. Mallard. We're just waiting for some really warm, sunny weather.

Easter And Grandparents

 My parents flew up for the last week of March while my mom was on spring break. We loved having them up and we got to see a little bit of the seacoast even though the weather wasn't great the whole time.

We celebrated Easter while they were here and we all wore our spring outfits even though it was still freezing out.

Edith wasn't really into having her picture taken with the family...

 ...or with Nonno and Meme

We made it over to Kittery, Maine on the windiest of days and had crullers and coffee at Lil's Cafe

 The following day was warmer and a lot less windy so we explored Portsmouth a bit. My dad has been up a few times but had never seen much of the area so wanted him to make sure he at least saw downtown Portsmouth. 

Another great visit...now if only we can get some of those uncles up here!

Almost The Last Snow

 I'm pretty sure I've told ya'll how crazy our weather has been here in NH. The middle of March was more like the end of April and April has been more like the beginning of March. We even had a day that was 74 degrees last month. Crazy!!

Last week we had about 6 inches fall and I couldn't pass up some pictures of what might be the last snow of the season. Of course, it snowed this last Sunday too but this was a much prettier snow so I'm really glad I got out to take these.

Edith was very excited to plop herself down and eat snow again.

I told George to stand next to Edith for a picture but he really wanted a picture in the woods. 

My snow babies are pretty cute!

Oh, and I'm ok with no more snow this season NH....just saying!
