Boston, Baby! (Part 2)

I am heading home after a phenomenal 17 day visit with my daughter, son-in-law and infant granddaughter in Boston.  I write this as I sit at Gate 17 waiting for my flight to Vancouver.

The first week of the trip was filled with family, 1st birthday celebrations and Hallowe'en festivities.

After the British Columbian party guests returned home, lucky Grandma got to stay for another ten days!  Our time was filled with reading boards books, eating every two hours, walks to the park, trips downtown on the train, baby snuggles, kisses on the lips and story hours at the public library.

 High fives for mom.

 Milk stupor.

 At the farmer's market.

 Learning to walk.


 Jordan is the baby whisperer.

 Me and my newest BFF Momo.

 Momo even won Molly over!

 Molly has met some lovely friends since living in Boston.

Excitedly waiting for her first taste of pizza!

 These fenced-in 'tot lots' are sprinkled all over Molly and Jordan's Jamaica Plain neighbourhood.  Not only do the playgrounds have swings and slides, but people donate their used tricycles, push cars and play kitchens.  It gives the children so much more to do and the kids love it.  This idea should be adopted everywhere!

 Smiles on the swing.

Watching the world go by.

 Kisses for mom!

 Licking the toys at the downtown library.

 Make way for ducklings!

 Littlest angel.

 This baby loves to sit for hours beside her bookshelf and read.

 Happy 30th birthday, Molly!

Getting ready for bed.

 All dressed up with somewhere to go.

 Three generations.

 If you ever get the chance, please go to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston.  It is incredible!

 Selfie at the museum!

The gang.

Thank you Molly, Jordan and Josephine for a wonderful 17 day visit.  

I loved every minute of it.  

I cannot wait to see you guys again.  

I miss you already.
