One addendum to our Massachusetts trip -- we stayed at an Airbnb our first night in Cape Cod, and our gracious host was a percussion teacher. She asked if it would bother us if she had a lesson while we were there, to which I -- knowing how into it Miles was likely to be … Continue reading Year 2, Day 128
We were fortunate to have a smooth, uneventful trip to Boston last week, but this morning's return flight was always bound to be more arduous. First, we were leaving the morning after the wedding.

We left Revere Beach this morning, but not before taking a moment to walk along the actual beach. Afterwards, we visited Plymouth while we were en route to Cape Cod, and Miles may have found his calling...as a colonial-era judge.

Today, we set out on another trek across the country, taking a flight north to New England in advance Jaclyn's sister's wedding in Cape Cod. It was hard getting packed and out of the house -- not because organizing suitcases was particularly difficult, but because Miles kept climbing on the luggage. Miles has, of course, … Continue reading Year 2, Day 119
