art day!

We recently met another family who are big art fans, so we headed out to the Berkshires to see the Van Gogh exhibit with them!

Both the museum and grounds were beautiful.

Bolton Fair 2015

We had a great day to go to the fair this year with our friends. I only wish I had taken a photo of the delicious kettle corn we ate at the end of the day, but we were too busy devouring it!

We decided to go to Boston today! The kids' main motivation was to eat cupcakes on Newbury Street, but first we went out to lunch and explored Boston Common and the Public Garden.

Canobie 2015

We made our annual trek to Canobie Lake Park. As usual, the kids didn't want to do a ton of rides but they had fun on the ones they did go on!

We hadn't been to Crane Beach in a while so we went with our friends Griffin, Tyler and Matthew. It was a great day! Jane and Malcolm ate peaches on the beach.
