May Catch Up

I just opened my planner and realized that June is almost here so lets play catch up on May before these pictures get lost.

This picture of Chloe was actually taken in April, the night she got home from Costa Rica, but I love it so much and had to include it. I was SOOOOO happy to have her home from Costa Rica!!

Its pretty much been raining the entire month of May (with the exception of this week)

Beckett started spring soccer. His first 3 practices were held indoors due to all the rain we’ve been having.

Winnie is always by someone’s side.

I love watching him play with his toys!

Lucy is his favorite person to play with. Melts my heart when she comes home from school and plays with him. He waits all day for her to get home.

My sweetest boy

We tried potty training one day. It lasted ONE DAY! Why are boys so hard to train? This is one stubborn little guy. I’ve been buying small packs of diapers once a week instead of a big box in hopes that we’ll get there soon.

Beckett is dying for a little brother. Ha! He tells EVERYONE that his baby brother will be here soon. Hahahaha!

img_7818

We sat with this couple at Nathan’s christening and Beckett fell in love with them. Here he is going through this lady’s pocketbook. He ended up coming home with a pen and some hand sanitizer. hahaha!

These two cute dogs showed up on my front steps one day. They hung out with us for a few hours until their owners came and got them. Beck cried that he wanted to keep the black one.

Flowers from Megan. And the sweetest note from Chloe.

How Lucy does her homework. He was patiently waiting for her to finish so she could play with him.

Cutest lunch date in dire need of a haircut. Ha!

Mother’s Day 2019

Have you ever had one of those days where all seemed well with the world? That was my day on Saturday. I knew that both Emma and Chloe were working on Sunday so we decided to celebrate Mother’s Day on Saturday. The six of us hopped into the car and headed into the city to pick up Megan.

Our first stop was at Mike’s Pastry OMG! We’ve lived here our entire lives and we’ve never been before!! (well, Megan has since she’s our true Bostonian). It was worth the 40 year wait and I can’t wait to go back!! Just look at this yummy, mint cannoli……img_7641

We got a big box full of cannolis, cheesecake and chocolate chip cookies. Calories do not count on Mother’s Day!

We sat by the waterfront and talked for about an hour and of course we had to take pictures.

Then we walked through the North End, which again was a first for Jon and I. I’m not sure why we’ve never been there before but, in my opinion, it’s one of the nicest area’s in Boston.

We walked over to Faneuil Hall where Megan ran into an old friend’s mom. She was so cute! She told Megan that on the train ride over she was wondering if she would run into her. What do you know? In a huge crowded city there was Megan. Beckett kept telling Megan “I love your new town”. After many trips into the city this also felt new to Beck.

It seemed like Boston woke up with the flowers this weekend. The hustle and bustle of the city combined with the quiet of the waterfront made for a pretty perfect spring day in the city.

This motherhood job that I have is pretty fantastic! I feel so blessed to call this crew mine.

(can you tell Beck was happy to have a few hours with his big sister?)

We met some friends at Edaville Railroad last week. Beckett had a BLAST!! It is the perfect park for anyone under the age of 5!

We drove into the city this weekend to take Megan out for breakfast. We miss her so much!! I’m just happy she’s not across the country from us! We also met a doodle on the street that we all fell in love with.

img_1308Lucy went to a haunted house with some friends.

This gorgeous girl is at the stage where she’s never around anymore either. Always working, studying or with friends.
