Memorial Day Weekend

We finally got around to reading the book everyone I know has (no, not the Twilight series yet!):

If you don't already know, the book is awesome for it's great illustrations and takes place in Boston. It has scenes from the Longfellow Bridge that Josh crosses on his bike every day for work, the Boston Public Garden, and Beacon Hill where we just love to frolic.

Here is me in case you forgot what I look like:):

The kids and I have been making frequent visits to Josh's work lately. They just LOVE "helping" dad with his experiments.

I {heart} Etsy

I have been a fan of etsy since I first heard about it a couple of years ago. It's so fun to see all the creative ideas people have. I finally have actually made my first Etsy purchase, though and couldn't be happier. Granted I only bought a few barrettes for PK, but still... I love etsy!

I got these little gems from SEWSARA. Right now she is having a give away for 5 items in her shop. Check out her blog here and try to win some free cute stuff. By the way, if you happen to get these barrettes from her like PK has, they are awesome and don't slip out of her super fine hair. It's miraculous!

Big Top Fun

A few weeks ago we were in Boston with Josh and saw that the circus was in town. We could see the big top in the center of the city. It was so inviting. Noah begged to go there. I assumed it would be hard to get tickets at a decent rate. Then a little later my friend, Heather called and said she could get me discounted tickets. We jumped on that one. Today I went with the Harvard Business School wives on the T downtown. I took Heather's little boy, Tate (Noah's beloved buddy) and we had such a good time. Seeing the looks on the kids faces as they watched the acrobats and bouncing poodles was priceless.
