Checking In

Hello from (chilly) Boston. I meant to whip up a post filling you in on knitting happenings in my life before we left for vacation but it just didn't happen.

Joe, Elise, and I made our way out to Boston on Friday after work and have been taking in as much as we can despite all the rain.

When the sun peeked out for about 15 minutes on Sunday morning, we were able to snap a cute shot of Elise on the USS Constitution.

She even got her first taste of a lobster tail at Mike's Pastry Shop.

Today we drove out to Concord for something different ( and to hopefully keep our shoes and clothing dry by finding some more indoor activities) and I am writing you from the Concord Library as our 1 and a half year old is enjoying books, puzzles, and "blocks on wires". It's either that or her resorting to activities in the hotel room like this:

(she thinks she can do everything herself)

Yes, she insisted her legs needed to go through the armholes.  Life is always exciting with a toddler around. 

Tomorrow we head up to New Hampshire and the magic of Squam begins. Much of last week was spent prepping for this event, our house once again looked like this-

I'll try to check in at least once this week in order to keep you updated (depending on Internet and phone connection, that is), and I'll make sure to take pictures along the way. After almost a year of anticipation I can't believe it's finally Squam time- wish me luck!


  1. Have a wonderful time!! And, oh my goodness, Elise is so cute!

  2. I hope that the weather gets better. I live in NH not to far from Squam Lake. It has been raining and cold for almost a week now. Hopefully you will bring a ray of sunshine to our state. Enjoy and yes it is suppose to get warmer as the week progresses.

  3. Good luck, Girl! Wish I was going to Squam with you. Take lots of pics!

  4. Elise is just too precious! I hope you all have a fun time!

  5. Oh that girl! Is she ever anything but adorable? Squam sounds like a blast; one of these days I'll make it up there (I hope!).
