Christmas with Two Littles!

Christmas was so magical this year with these two little ones! We spent three weeks in Utah for Christmas and it was so much fun seeing them play with all of our family members (their cousins, aunts and uncles, and grandparents love to spoil them!). 

Ryan was scared of Santa this year, poor little guy!

Before we headed to Utah, we saw Santa with some of our Boston friends! Only 3 of the 8 kids are crying so I'm calling it a win😂

We took this after church on the Christmas program Sunday, and it was super bright outside! I love this dress on Olivia, it was a hand-me-down from my sister-in-law Hannah and it's one of my favorites (I'll be so sad when she grows out of it).

On Christmas Day, we wore matching PJs to open presents. It was so cute to see the kids open a few gifts!

Fall Traditions 2018!

Every Fall, we do our favorite traditions! This always includes Apple Picking at Honeypot Hill Orchards! I love that this farm has the cute ladders you can climb up to pick apples.

We also love going to the Cranberry Festival every October and wading in the bogs with friends. Luckily, I think no one fell in this year finally!

And, of course we did trick-or-treating at Beacon Hill! Olivia is obsessed with Elsa and Anna, so our family dress up theme this year was Frozen.

The Berkshires

We love taking a weekend getaway every year in the Fall to see the New England colors! We had never been to the Berkshires in Western Massachusetts, so we decided to head there this year. It's about a two hour drive from Boston. 

On the way, we stopped at the cutest pumpkin patch called Tougas Family Farm. There was animals, tractors, playgrounds, and so much for the kids to do!

We then drove on Jacob's Ladder Scenic Byway to get to The Mount. The mansion and grounds were so pretty to walk around!

The kids loved playing in all of the leaves on the ground💛
Then, we drove on Undermountain Road to get to Olivia's Overlook. It has a great view of the lake and you can see lots of the different tree colors from up here.

Summer in Boston

Our summer has been filled with tons of beach days and trips to flower farms - there's just so many great places to see here!

We went to Applecrest Farm Orchards in New Hampshire with some friends to play in their sunflower patch maze. While we were waiting for our friends to arrive, Olivia played in their flower patch out front. So beautiful!

We then headed to the sunflower patch maze, which was so cute! I couldn't believe how tall the sunflowers were, they towered over us.

This farm also had apple picking, so all the little girls started picking apples together.

A quick trip to New York City!

We took a super short weekend trip to New York City this summer. We try to go a least a couple times a year since we live close, there's always so many fun things to do and see there. We love it! The Museum of Ice Cream had a pop up shop, so we took a quick peak. 

We took Olivia on the Carousel in Bryant Park- this one is so cute!

We also took the kids to splash in the fountain at Washington Square Park since it was such a hot day! And I must say, doing New York City with kids is a very then doing it without😂 We did soo many parks!

Ryan's 1st Birthday!

Our little Ryan turned 1! It's been such a great year with him. He is the sweetest baby, every comments on how sweet he is!

I took a picture every month to see his growth...
On our kids 1st birthday, we fill up their crib with balloons and let them play in it! Ryan loved it.

The Hall of Breakfast

While we were in Utah this summer, we went to this pop up place called The Hall of Breakfast. We met some of our good friends here and had such a fun morning together catching up with them!

This is basically a place to take pictures, but there's also a giant ball pit and the kids played in it for almost an hour. So fun!

Olivia loved playing with these cute girls!

The donut swings were pretty cute too...

We love these dear friends of ours! (And sorry to our husbands for making them take pictures with pink/girly backdrops😂)

San Diego & Newport Beach Family Trips

This summer we took a month long trip away from Boston to visit our families in San Diego, Newport Beach, then lastly, Utah! My two little brothers got home from serving missions for our church in Japan in late June, so we wanted to spend lots of time with them while in Utah.

We first spent a week in San Diego with my parents and did the Del Mar County Fair! My mom grew up going to this every year, so that was fun to do with her.

We took Olivia on some rides and she loved them- just giggled the whole time!

Except for this giant slide... she looked terrified, ha!

I love this picture of my mom blowing bubbles with Olivia. My mom bought her these cute pink rain boots and ever since she's insisted on wearing them everywhere.

While in southern California, we did tons of trips to the beach (and to In-N-Out too)!
