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…

Hi, guys! We had quite the fun time on Friday night… and it was totally impromptu! I didn’t feel like cooking, so we decided to take the whole family out to dinner at the Hingham Shipyard. We took Murphy to dinner at Trident last year and had such a great time together, we decided to do it again. It was basically a dog-friendly Friday night on the South Shore. Woohoo! Trident has an outdoor patio…

It’s time for another “day in the life” via timestamps! I hope you guys enjoy these blog posts because I think they’re really fun to write, and it’s a nice way to remember our “regular” days as a family. Let me know what you guys think! 7:15 AM: Breakfast in the living room with Quinn (and Murphy). On the menu: Banana oats mixed with Nuzest smooth vanilla protein powder, cinnamon, and almond butter. Delish! To…

In years past, I always wanted a big ol’ celebration for my birthday – either a party or a night out with my friends. And, sure, I had A LOT of fun, but as I get older, I prefer celebrating my birthday with just my boys. To celebrate #39, I enjoyed a low-key day, and it was exactly how I wanted to spend my birthday. (However, when I turn 40 next year, we are going…

I’m always on the hunt for new iced coffee places, so when the sign for Bonjour Cafe at Charles David Salon & Spa on Webster Street in Hanover caught my attention, I knew I wanted to stop in sooner than later. The location is basically “on the way” to just about everything, so it was just a matter of time before I stopped in. Last Friday, Quinn and I were on our way to swim…

Good morning! I’m still running a bit behind on blog recaps, but, hey, better late then never, right? 😉 Here are some highlights from our weekend as well as a list of our favorite kid-friendly restaurants on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I actually get this question about our favorite restaurants quite a bit, and we frequently dine out with Quinn, so I’m more than happy to share our go-to eating establishments that we all…

Good morning! I’m just popping in with a quick post to share some recent happenings and favorites. I didn’t write my usual weekend recap because, well, we didn’t do all that much. We got a bunch of snow, so we basically hung out around the house, which, for me, made me a bit stir crazy. It’s typically tough for me to sit still and relax (but I’m working on it), but I got a lot…

My experience at Zen Den over the past few months has truly been life-changing, and I’m not just saying this to be dramatic or exaggerate. What I’ve experienced in the Pain Management Clinic is nothing short of remarkable. I also like to say it’s “crazy” because the therapies used are like nothing I have ever experienced with any doctor, physical therapist, or practitioner before – and you guys know how many of these kinds of…

Hello from nap time! 🙂 Quinn told me he was “too tired to close his eyes” and then proceeded to pass out on the couch. Haha! I mean, that’s what happens when you wake up at 5:00 AM! I woke up at 4:01 AM to work this morning, but I was sabotaged by a tiny human walking into my office an hour later. I tried to get Quinn back to bed because I know how…

Hi, guys! Happy Tuesday to you! On Saturday afternoon, our little family went apple picking at C.N. Smith Farm in East Bridgewater, Massachusetts and, as expected, we had quite the nice time. We visited for the first time last year, and we were pleasantly surprised by how much it had to offer. It’s definitely our go-to place for family fall fun now! 🙂 First up, of course, was apple picking. There were only a few…

Hi, guys! It’s nap time over here, so I wanted to pop in real quick and share a recap of our morning. Quinn is home with me today since I’m off to Des Moines on Friday, and his school kindly agreed to swap days. Quinn actually slept until 7:00 AM this morning, so by the time we got ourselves ready for the day and walked Murphy, we didn’t have much time for breakfast. I whipped…

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! I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! Ours was SO FUN – and it made me even MORE excited for summer on the South Shore. Have I mentioned we’re never leaving? It’s funny… when we first moved south of Boston, I was so resistant. I couldn’t imagine not living in the city, and I thought the suburbs were so far from life conveniences and things to do. Now, I know I…

Guys, over the weekend, we discovered the best little brewery/taproom just 5 minutes from our house. Woohoo! Introducing: Burke’s Alewerks! For the locals, Burke’s is located on Webster Street (route 123) in Hanover right near the Row and Ride and Boston Interiors, across the street from Stop & Shop. It’s basically right off route 53. FYI: The faded demin shirt that I’m wearing the photo above was a steal at Target!  The space is much bigger…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday! We had quite the eventful weekend on the South Shore. We lost power for a few hours on Friday night because of the storm, but, luckily, it came back on before we all went to bed. We were VERY lucky because tons of people, including some of our friends, are STILL without power. We definitely thanked our lucky stars and offered our home for showering, charging, and whatever else was needed. What…
