Fall Break 2014: Boston

For Fall Break, we headed to Boston! If there were a picture to depict our trip, this would be it…Helen Grace kept a journal with her at all times and would sit down on any nearby bench or curb to document what we did along the way.2014-10-11 22.11.39

When she finally let me touch it, I about threw up- it was really wiggly. We did some shopping afterward, and there we realized that her permanent tooth was coming in behind the loose tooth. Mama needed to sit down a minute!! She was so excited and made us text and email everyone we know.2014-10-11 16.45.49Sunday:  Home again, home again, jiggety jig!2014-10-12 08.58.05 2014-10-12 09.13.28 This child loves a Sky Club.
