A sister walk.

From a walk to celebrate Christy's 27th, my sisters and me. I am better because they're in my life - voices of reason and strength. Happy birthday, CB. 



We bought bikes! Your run-of-the mill road bikes that we took all over town / to the beach this weekend. We quickly learned why padded seats exist (and Blake has ordered his), but with that modification, we'll be good to go. You'll hear the kids cheering on their dad in the bike trailer from a mile away.


From Boston.

 From a long weekend in Boston: 
^^a trip to the science museum, where the kids were riveted by pulley systems and dinosaurs.
^^a stay at the Marriott Custom House, just above Faneuil Hall.
^^a beach visit with the Bishops, who we've missed so much over the last year.

Sea glass hunting.

 A new Sunday pastime: sea glass hunting at a town beach, bundled to the brim, extra points given for blues and greens. Retraining ourselves to move slowly, to notice everything.
