A Visit from the Aunties!

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.
Dashiell got to ride the Carousel near the harbor, which he was very excited about since missed the carnival that was near our house the weekend before (too rainy and thunderstormy). 

He also had a good time climbing on various concrete structures.  He had less of a good time shopping, but he was a trouper!

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.
Here's Dashiell looking melancholy in the butterfly garden.  Really, he had a good time, despite what this picture suggests!

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.
