pleasant day in Portsmouth

We met Nana, Grammy and Uncle Ben's family in Portsmouth the other day. We went to a beautiful park on the water with a gorgeous garden. Afterwards we went out for lunch. It was a nice visit!

Malcolm is 9!

Malcolm, Jane and Westie sat out on the porch.

We had Chinese food for lunch!

Jane decorated her ice cream pie in preparation for the afternoon birthday party!

We had a joint party. We would've loved it to be outside, but hurricane NATE made for a very wet day. The kids played twister and basically ran around being loud.

birthday tour

I "forced" my family to accompany me on a tour of Fenway Park on my birthday. The kids sure thought it was boring! It was raining off and on but it was neat to see different parts of the park!

Afterwards we celebrated the 20th anniversary of my 21st birthday at the restaurant I went to when I turned 21: Boston Beer Works!

fun at the farm!

The kids wanted to go to Davis Farmland to celebrate their birthdays. Other than a goat chewing Jane's hair, it was a fun day!

Jane is 11!

Jane turned 11! She and Malcolm woke up early and opened some presents before school. They got Pokemon building sets!

Jane chose to have blueberry pancakes for breakfast. I think she wants that every year!

The birthday girl!

We went to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner. Now Jane is too old for the kids' menu! She prefers adult appetizers anyway.
