Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Jeremiah 31:13

We have been busy...

...entertaining family!  My mom and brother flew into Boston on Saturday night so we have been having so much fun showing them around our new city.  That is why I am behind on the blog.  My brother flew back to NYC last night and my mom is here until Saturday.

Before they came on Saturday David and I spent the day biking to and from Cambridge.  We purchased a bike trailer and are really enjoying riding with the boys around town. Majority of the ride they were good but we definitely had some breakdowns, temper tantrums, and moments where we thought we wouldn't make it home. =)

We made our first stop at a playground next to the Charles River.  The boys love this playground.  I love it too because the view is gorgeous.IMG_1103 IMG_4368 IMG_4367 IMG_4369 IMG_4370 IMG_4372 IMG_4375 IMG_4378 IMG_4380 IMG_4381 IMG_4383 IMG_4386 IMG_4389
We then rode our bikes to Cambridge and enjoyed great Sandwiches at All Star Sandwich Bar and wonderful homemade ice cream next door at Christina's Homemade Ice Cream.   I love these next few pictures.  Austin loved feeding his little brother his ice cream.  Miller thought it was hilarious and just giggled and giggled.

I love the sweet little relationship my 2 boys share.  There are definite arguements and fights but they really do love each other.  I pray every day they continue to be close.

After naps Austin painted his new train he received from his friend Sebastian.  IMG_4434 IMG_4437
That evening David made his famous banana pancakes.  It was a wonderful day as a family.  IMG_1104
