Our “baby” turned 6 years old yesterday… and, my gosh, we’ve celebrated! Let’s just say Quinn has had quite the birthday celebration! I mean, you only turn 6 once, right? 🙂 The celebrations started last Saturday with an early birthday present – Dueling Stomp Rockets! We planned a small “water party” with a few kids from the neighborhood, so we figured it would be a fun toy to play with. The Dueling Stomp Rockets and…

Mal and I were up and at ’em yesterday morning. We each wanted to squeeze in a quick workout before a day at Duxbury Beach. Unfortunately, our workouts weren’t quick enough because when we arrived at 7:45 AM, non-resident was at capacity. Whomp whomp. We were bummed, but we made the best of our drive to Duxbury by stopping at Coffee Shack (in Marshfield) on the way home. Butterscotch iced coffee? Yes, please! I was…

A ride in the car to the beach? Murphy was ALL about it. Seriously, once those words left my mouth, he was frantically following my every move as I got us ready and packed up to go to the beach. What can I say, the dog loves a good adventure! 🙂 We headed to the beach in the late afternoon and stayed until the sun set. Once we got settled, we headed down to the…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday! I can’t believe another summer weekend is over just like that! I feel like it was just Friday evening and we were heading to the beach to kick it off. Holy cow, time flies when you’re having fun! 🙂 Our little family headed to the beach on Friday evening. Mal was away all week, so we were all itching for some quality time together. We even brought Murphy with us! Murphy…

Around here, summer is an all out sprint – trying to cram every last bit of fun into a few short months. The winters are long, so when the nice weather arrives, everyone is out and about taking full advantage. It’s totally crazy at times, but I wouldn’t want it any other way! 🙂 That said, here’s a recap of our most recent summer weekend! Saturday We’ve been on fire this summer, so Saturday was…

Hi, guys! After being away for 10 days (Seattle —> Oregon), the start of this week has been a bit hectic with regard to catching up on work, life, and everything else. I’ve basically been glued to my laptop and running around like a chicken with its head cut off. Blahhhh. So, when Mal came home (he was golfing) with Quinn yesterday afternoon and told me to throw on my bathing suit because we were…

Quinn and I had quite the fun morning at the beach yesterday! And we didn’t get stuck in the sand, so it was a definitely a WIN for us! More on this in a second… My day kicked off with a tasting plate full of veggies, lentils, and a scoop of a new Jalapeno Lime Almond Dip from Trader Joe’s, which added some serious flavor and heat! And I love that the ingredients are super…

Have I mentioned that we’re never leaving the South Shore? 🙂 The longer I live here, the more I love it. Sunday was an awesome day – easily one of the best of the summer. We spent all day (10 hours) at the beach with friends and, my gosh, we had a great time. It was our first experience driving onto Duxbury Beach and now we know why everyone raves about the experience so much. The actual drive to…
