I know I have a lot of blogging to do from Memphis but I thought I would recap our Memorial Day Weekend first.
We started our weekend with a quick scooter ride to the grocery store. We looked like quite the bunch with 2 kids with helmets on sitting in the buggie plus 2 scooters on the bottom of the buggie. The cashier gave them stickers and they proceeded to put all 6 on their shirts before we left.
After dinner on Friday night we took another scooter ride to a little place down the street that serves Gelato. (I am well aware that my kids eat a lot of ice cream but its something everyone enjoys so oh well).
We woke up Saturday morning and headed to Crane Beach in Ipswich, MA.
It's only about an hour away and a great beach. It was super crowded because of the weather (88 degrees) and the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend but we still had a great time. The boys love playing in the sand and wading in the water.
After the beach we stopped at Russell Orchard which had great ice cream, wine, apple cider donuts, and tons of farm animals. The boys loved this as much as the beach.
Sunday we went to church, took long naps, and then took an afternoon bike ride to the Charles River. The weather was perfect so it was such a nice bike ride. David pulled the boys so I really felt like I was getting a little quiet time without 2 little ones behind me talking nonstop.
Monday we put the boys down for an early nap because we took them to a Red Sox Game that afternoon. This was Miller's and my first Red Sox game. We had a blast! Again, perfect weather and the boys were so good. They both loved watching the game and enjoying lots of game snacks (another ice cream =)
It truly was a great weekend! A great kickoff to hopefully a wonderful summer in Boston.
