A couple of weeks ago we were blessed by a visit from Auntie Lisa and Great-Auntie Diane! They were only out for the weekend, so we just got a few activities in but there was also much hanging out and chatting and playing pirates and doing all sorts of fun stuff. Dashiell had a blast! He loves having live-in playmates!
In addition to hanging out at the house, we did manage to make it into Boston to visit Faneuil Hall. The Fonz was in town filming a movie (directing? Acting? I'm not sure...) and Lisa wanted to see him and say "ayyy!". We didn't see him, unfortunately (or should I say fortunately for the Fonz!), but we had a good time anyway.
On Sunday we visited the Butterfly Place in Westford, which was pretty dang cool. Here is one of the many lovely butterflies we encountered:
Some of them were huge! There were these gigantic blue butterflies that would fly in front of your face and tickle your nose. But they were too fast so it was hard to get a good picture of them with a conventional point-and-click camera.
And here's D and Auntie Lisa one morning, hamming it up for the camera. I love that they both have these big cheesy smiles!
After Lisa and Diane left to go back to Minnesota, Dashiell repeatedly commented that "it was nice to have visitors." Agreed.
