Boston Children’s Museum

Early in the month the hubs, little miss, and myself trekked it down to Boston to visit my brother and his girlfriend, and adventure to the Boston Children’s Museum together. We’ve never been, but both my brother and his girlfriend assured us that it is fabulous.

So much fun in the construction area. Despite pink being her favorite color, she loves trucks – and dinosaurs!

They were not wrong! Our little girl loved every minute of it. She had so much fun in each room.

Bubbles, golf ball race tracks, blocks, and fish watching with her uncle. One happy kiddo!

I think our little one is at a great age for this place (she’ll be three in December). There were some things that were a bit over her head, but there is SO much there that she still had more than she knew what to do with! In fact, by the time we got to the Music Room she had hit over stimulation mode, leading into over tired/past nap time mode! Luckily, that was the last room we had to see, so while she didn’t fully take advantage of that particular room, it was still a fabulous trip.

Has Anyone Seen My Head?

Because I’m pretty sure it fell off somewhere with all the running around I’m doing this week. We are going on a big family camping trip (our annual family reunion) and between prepping for that, regular errands, a new commitment I’ve made with my best bud, and taking my little girl to the beach often, this week is just nuts!!!

Very happy with her bright yellow mushroom she found at Grammy’s house!

Luckily, I’m feeling a little more organized on the home front because A: I’ve managed to keep the house in relative order this week, which is good since my brother and his girlfriend are staying with us overnight before we leave for camping. I actually don’t have much to clean up before their arrival! And B: I’ve got my lists made. I can not function without lists. I write them for everything – groceries, chores I need to do, projects I have, and especially for packing. I think it’s combination of my inability to remember things (besides loads of useless trivia) and that visually seeing things laid out in an organized fashion calms my brain. I’m definitely not a neat freak, but I do like organization (hence all our Blu-Rays in perfect alphabetical order).

My lists for our upcoming camping trip. . .I go a little overboard.

We’ve spent tons of time at the beach this week too – it’s been so hot up here in NH (90+ every day!), and I can’t think of a better place than the beach with it’s cool-but-not-TOO-cold water and lake breezes. . .ahhhhhh.

            Outta my way, things to do!   Quite happy with her shovel of sand.

This past Sunday we went down to see our favorite cousins and their gorgeous new house they just bought! So glad they moved up to NH so we can see each other more often. They were kind enough to offer up their pool for use, and we had a blast!

Loving the pool!

So the blog will be silent for at least a few days while we go camping, recover from camping, and get the house all back in order and back to everyday life. I’ve got some posts brewing – both about shopping. One on indie shopping and all the AMAZING things I’ve gotten so far from indie stores, and one on yard sales and the crazy cool things you can find for next to nothing! And of course, a post or two about our camping trip will be in the works. Enjoy your week, and stay cool!
