Thrifting Fun!

I had a great time this weekend visiting two local thrift shops. I got some treasures! All for under $10 bucks!

Today's thought

"Always take time, to stop and smell the flowers"

Happy Birthday Owen!

We traveled to Connecticut to visit my roommate from college and her family. Violet had a blast at Owen's first Birthday party. Here are some photos from the day.

A visit with friends

Brian's best friend from High School and his wife are visiting for a few weeks from Texas. Violet was happy to finally meet them. We headed to the Folk Fest, which was a little disappointing, however we had fun with some cool signs and found a great organic restaurant-

We had a great day today just hanging out at home in the front yard. It was a perfect summer day. The sun wasn't too strong, there was a warm gentle breeze. It was just perfect!

My New Bike!

I was looking for a vintage bike for awhile and I finally found just what I was looking for. It was only $15 bucks. Brian thinks I am silly, but I plan to restore it and replace things as they go and use it to go on quick rides to the local library and supermarket. I plan to attach a basket to the front and maybe even put on a bell. I enjoyed my first ride on it today!

Fresh eggs

I recently discovered a small farm here in Haverhill, that sells fresh eggs. I learned today that a white hen lays white eggs, a brown  hen lays brown eggs. This farm also has Polish hens that lay pastel like colored eggs. Here is a photo of the variety I got today. A whole dozen for $2.50! What a bargain...oh and Violet loves eggs!

Liam's party

We attended the first birthday party of Liam. We met his parents in our birthing class and have had many playdates together. Violet had a blast, and even tried broccoli for the first time!

I made bread!!!

I can't believe it...I made my very first homemade from scratch loaf of bread today. It was a process, but so worth is so good. I am very proud of myself!

Fourth of July 2008

Hope you all had a Happy 4th and didn't get stuck in the storm. On the 3rd we attended the Chelmsford Art Show and Booths. I won Honorable Mention in the Photography Competition. However the storm came and the concert was canceled :( On the 4th, we enjoyed a great cookout.

A great moment!

Moments like this just bring a smile to your face. Just look at my littlebird. I love her sooo much!

Trip to Martha's Vineyard

We usually end the gym year, with a trip to Martha's Vineyard to officially start our summer. We had a great time visiting friends, taking Violet on the oldest carosel in the country and to the beach of course. Enjoy the photos!
