We couldn't have asked for better weather-- a warm sun, cool breeze, and blue skies. Especially considering that last July, we were sweltering in 100 degree days almost all month. It was one of those days where I couldn't help but sit back and watch my guys explore, feel this little girl in my belly, and be overwhelmed with gratefulness.
And an outing with only one toddler meltdown is definitely a success-- Silas got a little stressed out about having to navigate through a field of goose poop. He keeps reminding us that he cried about the poop-- we couldn't help but crack up as we wiped his tears and consoled his sobbing little self.
For my local friends (or if you are planning a visit soon!) -- we caught the 9 am Hingham ferry, but there is also one that leaves from the seaport in Boston. It was free for Chris since he is active duty military, and for Si, so it was a total of $15 for a my roundtrip ticket and a whole morning of boat rides and exploring. Some islands had campsites available, some even had small cafes, and events like Shakespeare performances in the evenings. I'm pretty excited to add this to our 'favorite things to do in Boston' list. Here's some more info on the islands and the ferry, if you're interested.
