We’ve had some lovely warm weather these past few weeks, and have started to rediscover some of our old haunts. The kids have dusted off their scooters and are setting new speed records each day. We scooted to the local playground the other day to celebrate this apparent arrival of spring:
After scooting for a while, the kids wore themselves (and their parents) out on the play equipment.
The next day, we wandered down to the harbor to visit the vendors. Mostly it was an excuse to scoot some more.
There were spring flowers and spring hats, but the highlight was seeing “Yankee Doodle Candy” open again for the season. Our hearts swelled with pride at the display of the products that make America great! (You know, Fruit Loops, Boston Baked Beans, Kool-Aid, vats of marshmallow fluff, etc.)
We even spent an afternoon at the beach for the first time in ages. It was a little ripe, but nice to be back. (You can see Flora giving a shell the sniff test below.)
Next up: A long-awaited visit from Susan and Bill (and Tyler too)!
