words and pictures about life with my three boys

Posts from the out and about Category

+ high-res version

we spent yesterday ( labor day ) lost in a mega corn maze trying to solve a murder mystery case. this was definitely the most fun we have ever had being lost.

it was the milkman in case your wondering.



bowling….a trip to the children’s museum Boston….a stroll through the common….the last free summer concert…making rainbows and splashing in the back-yard…….

the last days of summer were great.

so we are back from the cape. we had a fantastic week and a lot of fun and i could easily have stayed there for another month. if only…..

the sea breeze. blue skies. big frothy waves and the gorgeous beach house cottages. its all too pretty and too hard to leave behind. the tasty lobstah rolls and home-made ice-cream. oh the ice-cream !

i have lots of pictures to share but have yet to upload them. i am in a lazy mood. a big bowl of pasta in front of  the T.V. kinda lazy mood.

enjoy whats left of yours x

took a trip to Southwicks Zoo. It’s more like a farm than zoo where you can get up close and personal with the animals.

we walked right next to their deer in a walkway through a wooded area where you can feed and pet them and their little ones. these guys are pretty smart, they hang around the food dispenser and collect the crumbs that drop to the ground. feeding them was funny, their hot sticky tongues tickle when they lick your hand and they are so beautiful and gentle too. it was pretty cool being this close to them. Tommie loved the pet-place and being surrounded by baby goats and piglets. he loves animals and had no fear of petting them and even tried to pick some up.

we cycled the cape cod canal trail. a lovely flat cycle trail along the cape cod canal. the weather was perfect and the sea breeze kept us cool as we cycled. we were lucky enough to catch sight of some dolphins that entered the canal and we even got to cycle alongside them for bit. tommie loved this one because he had lots to watch from his bike seat. he pointed to the boats as they passed and was overjoyed to see the dolphins ( big fish ). even better is the fact that this trail ends at a beach so after our cycle we spent the afternoon on the sand.

the boys only left the water to eat and tommie stayed in his little pool for hours and investigated the little sea creatures on the shoreline. we stayed late, almost the last the leave. the work on the new house will just have to wait, especially while the sky is this blue.
hope your weekend was special too x

recently we grabbed a ferry to block island for some sea air. we brought along our bikes and cycled around. we walked the beaches….the boys enjoyed the ferry-ride….tommie made friends with an antique dolly he found in a thrift store….the boys skimmed stones…..we strolled through the quaint shops and galleries…… we enjoyed blue skies.

we love block island.
