Boston Fire Museum

This little museum is right behind the Children's Museum and I had always wanted to check it out. It was a lot of fun!

The kids were happy to see a seagull outside!

library

Jacob's mom took this photo at the library. We go here a lot and my kids will let me read to them for hours.

trains!

We visited Nana and Grandpa in Maine and we took a ride on the Narrow Gauge Railroad. We had gone a few years ago after a less-than-successful hotel stay, so this time the kids were much more awake!

valentines party

My children spent close to an hour eating cookies, cupcakes, fruit and other treats!

Here's our friend Hannah!

Malcolm got a lot of comments, like: "that guy knows how to party," and: "he looks like a blueberry!"

knitted hayride

Per Leigh's request, here are a couple photos with all the knitted farmyard pieces I have so far.

I used fleecy yarn that Nana mailed me for the sheep!

This isn't part of the book, but I decided we needed a bale of hay. No, it doesn't look much like hay, but if it's next to a horse I think it will be clear.

playground in winter

This winter has been very warm and not snowy. I can't say I like it, although it's nice to still go to the playground. We went with our friends Rosalie and Nolan last week, and these are from their mom's phone!

Tower Hill Botanic Garden

Yesterday we did a workshop at the Tower Hill Botanic Garden. We had never been there before, so it was a nice adventure. The kids had a snack in this gazebo.

We went outside to explore evidence of animals in the wintertime.

Another snack in the Orangerie:

Jane really loved the place but Malcolm wasn't so excited about it. So maybe a girls' excursion in the spring?

science museum

The first thing we did was to check out the geckos. This was the cutest little guy!

Then we went to the moon:

Not that it ended well for us, but it was fun to have some team spirit on Sunday. Jane woke up, put on her Patriots shirt and made this sign without us saying anything to her!

Photobucket

We put a table and chairs in the living room so we could eat pizza and watch the beginning of the game. Can you tell the kids liked it?

Malcolm doesn't have a Patriots shirt so he picked the next best thing to wear.

at home

I haven't been bringing the camera out with us lately, so here are some photos of what we've been doing at home.

I babysat Cassidy last week and we did some crafts:

I love how Westie is in the top of the box!

Jane loves to play in her room:

I finished the pigs to go with the farm!
