the house at two years



As we approach two years of being in this home, I figure it's a good time to review where we're at with a home tour.
We'll do a picture from when we bought the house, and then one of where it is now.

(as a reminder, here's the mess we were in six months ago)





















 Now for the upstairs...























 this room is tricky to show, but it went from being one big room to being a small bedroom, hallway, and bathroom.

in Boston: day two

First, a note about the time we got to spend with family in Rhode Island.
We love them.
There's a pretty big age gap between Curt and his cousins (they're pre-teens and teens), so they call him their uncle-cousin. They love and are so good with the kids.
Curt's pretty cute with them too, he was excited to get up and take them to school.
(they're in school until the end of June, weird)
Being in their home is so comfortable and nice. Jenni spent a lot of time reading books to the little ones over and over at their request.
I enjoyed listening to the evening conversation and banter.

Late Tuesday morning we headed into Boston again with Kinsey to explore a little more.
Highlights: hitting Hanover street and stopping at Modern Pastry (I loved the strawberry cheesecake), eating lunch at Anna's taqueria (a new favorite), wandering around Quincy Market. 








 






We said a quick goodbye to Lane after he got home from work and then flew out early Wednesday morning.




 




 Super fun visit.
