April vacation

We had some nice weather for April vacation this year! Malcolm and I rode our bikes and stopped at the caboose.

Malcolm had the idea to go to the New Hampshire Children's museum. It was smart because they have a different vacation week, so it wasn't crowded!

It was pretty chilly when we went to Davis Farmland but we still had fun. The baby goats were so tiny!

There was a sleepy pregnant kitty who had a heart like Westie!

We visited the kittens about five times!

The kids got to hold a bearded dragon. He clung to their fleeces!

We went to the park and out for cupcakes with Duncan and Cassidy.

what a zoo

I tagged along on the first grade field trip to the zoo last week! It was a beautiful day and the kids had a great time.

Malcolm wore his hood all day - he doesn't want anyone to see his haircut!

There was a mom and baby gibbon and the kids watched them for a long time!

Jane enjoyed our (hopefully) last snowstorm of the season!

I just had to XC ski one more time, and it was fun!

Jane asked to go to Salem, mostly to visit the store that sells a bunch of Harry Potter stuff. But we also saw the stick houses and the Peabody Essex museum.

Here's another photo I got of the waxwings on the crab apple tree. This time I walked right up to it slowly and they didn't fly away! I can't imagine how good 6-month old apples taste, but apparently they're tasty to the birds.
