Comfort and Joy

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

Wonderful Memorial Day Weekend

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. Grocery shopping fun...we rode our scooters there so that's why they have their helmets on
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. Heading to the beach!
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.
Perfect beach day! My littlest beach bum One cool dude
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. Ice cream at Russell Orchard after a fun day at the beach Petting the goat
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. Enjoying an after dinner bike ride I'm really going to miss this.
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.

We tried our first baseball game this weekend in Cincinnati and had to leave during the first inning when I took Ben to the first aid station and he had a temp of 104. Looks like your first one went much better :)
