Please Come to Boston...{part 1}

She said...YES!

We had the chance to visit Boston and Cambridge (our old stomping grounds for three years). I couldn't believe that we hadn't been back since June 2008! Cutie Face got to meet a lot of our friends and visit our old haunts.

Visiting the Harvard Museum of Natural History, where I used to work:

she was really quite taken by this cat and kept going back to it

I couldn't pass up a flower picture of my floral-wearing headband girl in front of the Glass Flowers exhibit

and, of course, a Monkeys-on-the-Bed! shot:

Souvenir from daddy's alma mater:

Stay tuned for Part 2 (running through Boston) and Part 3 (visiting the Vineyard)

it's a rainy night (day, week, month) in Georgia

I'm not a huge fan of this song but it is very very true these days!

Picture taken from the Internet...but this is what it looked like a few days later!

Despite the rain, we had fun this weekend!

On Saturday, we visited our favorite Farmer's Market in Atlanta.

i kind of dig these overhead shots of Cutie Face walking on cool surfaces:

We were even quoted in an USA Today article about why we like Farmer's Markets so much (yes, this will give away our names but I'm trusting you to be nice with that information!)

It continued to rain on Sunday but, in between showers, we took the kiddo to a local park. Needless to say we were the only ones there. She found a fun little toy (the neighborhood parents just leave/donate play toys for kids to play on while visiting the park! neat!)

Here's to a dry start of the week...!

Updates schmupdates

I have so much to update on and I don't really want to skip over anything that we did because it was all so fun. So, be prepared for crazy posting...eventually!

We just got back from Portland, Oregon (and a little bit of the seaside, too!) so we have tons of pictures from that...and then we have all of July and August to catch up on, too! I hope you won't mind...I'm hoping to use this blog as a record of Cutie Face's life (and her future sibling's life, too!) so updating is key :)

For now I just wanted to show you the super cute birthday gift she received from one of my friends from Team-in-Training (they say when you sign up for TNT that you will find friends for life and they were RIGHT!).

As you may know, Cutie Face's nursery is yellow, black, and white. All over. I love it! You also know that she wears bows all.the.time. To the point that people don't recognize her without the bow! So my thoughtful friend sent her a customized hairbow/clippie holder that matches her nursery decor to a "T"! We love it so much that I just had to share!

She now obsessively says "please" all the time with words or using sign language
(you rub your hand near your neck like she is doing below)

She also sniffs flowers--even fake ones:

finally wearing a bow and looking at all the bows on her bow holder:

PS if you want one, too, you can buy them at Bowtique Lollipop!
