Summer Fun

We spent July Fourth in Old Lyme with the fam— we visited with Cherie, spent  time at the beach, hit the carousel, had ice cream, and Jeff and I even got to spend a night out at my friend, Caroline’s wedding.  Fiona had a great time with Mimi and Grampy!!  Fi has taken to playing piano with her Grand-mere- she loves to hear “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” and even fills in some notes and words.  She also was in awe when she listened to Grand-mere play “more complicated” pieces.

Our second visit to Boston of the summer— First we went to the aquarium,  Fi was her spunky, curious self- tearing around the aquarium checking out all the sea life.  Then after lunch, playtime at the park, and a ride on the T— Fi was a perfect angel and took a nap in her stroller while Jeff and I relaxed on a park bench in the Public Garden.  When she woke up, we fed the ducks and rode on the Swan Boats.  It was a beautiful and exhausting day!

Beach Day at Good Harbor Beach in Gloucester.  The weather was amazing and and the tide was perfect.  It started low, and got even lower.  Fi had fun digging in the sand, running and running on the large sandbar, and playing in the waves.

Parlee Farms- we visited the animal barn and went peach picking.  I think my favorite part fo the day was that Fiona wore her sunglasses (and ridiculous pigtails) all morning- it was too cute!    IMG_6098IMG_6124    IMG_6120     IMG_6107

Well, there are the highlights…  In addition to all these outings, we have spent so many fun days at home in the pool, sandbox, and hanging out.  Fi has had many play dates with her friends Ava, Sadie (and new baby James!!!!!) and Jack.
