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.

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

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 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.
