9 Months

i'm a little behind on kingston's monthly updates so the ten month entry will be out soon hopefully. we can't believe he is going to be a year old in a few months. i head back to work in a little over a month and calling daycares makes this all too real. it make my heart pretty heavy.

Endless Beach Days

new england is having a little bit of an indian summer so we are squeezing every last warm beach day out of the season as we can. an evening at the shore is a "must do" as much as possible every summer for us. good thing my mom and dad came along for the extra set of hands because there was no stroller holding this baby back during this visit to the beach. he was on the move and ready to join the fun. all he wants to do is try to run and swim with his cousins.  i think they are going to have a great time together once he is steady on two feet.

we extended the afternoon and decide to stay after dark with a warm cozy beach fire. we had yummy egg salad sandwiches made with local eggs, big chunks of organic celery and fresh parsley from the garden for dinner. and we drank the last of our summer beer. it was a new moon that night so the milky way twinkled especially bright over head. i was in such awe that i never even thought to photograph the nights sky. oh well....maybe next time.

Heading North

a few weeks back keith and i packed up the our little family early on a friday morning and heading north for a few days. it was a quick visit, but so much fun. we rented to cutest little red cabin in bartlett, new hampshire. the owners are very nice and so knowledgeable about the area. every morning at breakfast we learned something new and interesting. we spent a day at the top of mt. washington, picnicked in the valley, walked the woods and relaxed on the porch with our favorite beer.  

we spent most of saturday at the top of mt. washington enjoying the amazing views. with rare 96% visibility we could not pull ourselves away from the mt. range. the plan was to only visit for the late morning and go on an afternoon hike, but it was so beautiful we ended up staying much longer. the weather was perfect, the museum was interesting and watching the hikers ascend from their long journey  to the top was fun. although i was quite envious of them and really want to hike the summit someday in the near future.  

kingston napped and the dogs, keith and i hung out on the porch with a few drinks and one of my favorite snacks. later on that night we enjoyed dinner at flatbread company. baby is a big fan of their yummy organic pizza and i am a big fan of their brownie sunday. i know i have written before about how much i love this company, but it really is a great one and their website is so adorable. check it out if you have never taken a peak. below is the prettiest entrance/exit to their n. conway location.
