Grandparents visit part 4

Quincy Market
 Bumpa, Nana, Kate, and Elle watching the street performers

 Dustin helped the street performers

These goofy street performers were pretty entertaining

 Fort Independence on Castle Island

 Grandma and Kate were running laps around us

 Bumpa, Parker and  Dustin

 This was really funny.  Dustin was trying to catch this crab.  The crab was making it difficult.  Dustin finally won.

Silly Bumpa

 Wingaersheek Beach
The weather was great the whole time we had family visiting, except for the day we planned to go to the beach. Of course.  It was VERY WINDY!  But that didn't stop us from having one of the funnest days of all.

 We had a blast exploring.  Wingaersheek is the best beach for exploring.

Lauren thought that because she had rain boots on that she could go in the water.  She got soaked!

There were thousands of clams!  It was so interesting.  It sounded like crunchy leaves when you would step on them.  And there were so many, there was no avoiding them.

We absolutely LOVE when we have visitors. 
So come visit!!!

Grandparents visit part 3

USS Constitution W/ Grandma Marcia

 The girls loved the USS Constitution Museum

 Elle laying in a hammock like a Sailor would have

Martha's Vineyard
 We all loved going to Martha's Vineyard

 The kids loved the ferry ride over.  It was about 45 minutes.

photographer Lauren took this picture

 On Martha's Vineyard there is a village of probably close to 100 little "Gingerbread" cottages.  They were all so cute and we really loved looking at all of them.  This one is for sale.  Lauren and Parker wanted to try out the chairs on the front porch to make sure we like it before we put an offer in. 

Boston Commons
 Notice Elle in the bottom left, refusing to get in the picture. Hah...I showed her.

This person was a crazy weirdo!  No, not Grandma, the guy!  But it was so funny to watch him play "music"
