Living in Boston with kiddos has so many benefits. A quick walk turns into an outing that includes window shopping at a toy store, checking out the beautiful display at the florist shop, and saying hello to Jack, Kack, Lack, Mack, Nack, Ouack, Pack, & Quack. There’s also the benefit of gross motor practice while toddling on the uneven cobblestone (for kids and adults, alike!). Sweet and handsome S did all of that along with his doting parents on a chilly spring morning. That was all very lovely, but the thing that had me chuckling on the way home was what happened when we went to get a family portrait with the three of them and their two dogs. Lauren and James had mentioned that one of their dogs always turns away when you try to take a photo of them. I didn’t really believe it. That is, I didn’t believe it until we tried to take the photo. (We did finally get one with both dogs looking, but it took a bit as I couldn’t stop laughing at the one who kept turning away!)
James and Lauren, thanks so much for a fun little walk around your neighborhood. It was so nice meeting you all; such a nice gift from your former nanny!
