Our Boston trip in a nutshell

Ethan and I spent the last two weeks in Boston, where we spent time with my in-laws.  My dad was able to come up from Seattle for a long weekend, which was really fun.  My mom- and dad-in-law took us all over and we hopped to different states on day trips.

Grandpa Phil and Ethan
We visited pretty beaches

checked out local farms

sampled a whoopie pie

explored antique shops

did some sewing

went to pretty lookouts

ate lobster in Maine

watched Ethan bond with his grandparents

 and traveled to darling towns with tons of history.  We also ate delicious food and just relaxed.

Fabrics from Sarah

I had an astounding amount of mail waiting for me in Boston--mostly swap fabric from Flickr friends.  My sister-in-law, Sarah, sent me these pretty fabrics for my hexagon quilt.  I was so surprised and excited when I saw these beauties.  I have accumulated about half of the fabric I need for the quilt!

My friend, Ashley, sent me this handmade wrist pincushion along with swap fabric.  I love it!

Ethan now pulls the basket around the grocery store for us.  Occasionally he picks out treats for himself and puts them in the basket.
We're now back in Denmark and are adjusting to the fall weather.  (The weather in Boston was in the 80s for most of the time we were there!)

We had seat belts installed on the bench on my bike, so Ethan can sit up and see where we are going, instead of riding in his car seat.

It's so nice to be together again.  We really missed Aaron and Chase.

What a beautiful collection of pictures Emily! I felt like I was there... if only I were to see you and Ethan. It looks like you had a fabulous time. Ethan is such a sweetie pie.
Lots of love!
