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.
A restless night for Miles led to a rough start to the day for all of us. Nevertheless, we dragged ourselves out of bed and headed back into Boston for a walking tour followed by some relatively aimless shambling about. His favorite moment of the day might have been feeling the breeze on a Boston … Continue reading Year 2, Day 122
Today was one of the more eventful days of Miles's life thus far, as we spent today meandering around Boston. The day started off with Miles's first experience on public transit. With a visit to Fenway Park to watch a Battle of the Soxes, today was destined to be a highlight of our Massachusetts trip … Continue reading Year 2, Day 121

Miles has, of course, … Continue reading Year 2, Day 119

Largely, it's gone well. Tuesday night was a little bumpy (but I had a feeling … Continue reading Year 2, Day 94
We drove up to Massanutten Resort in Virginia yesterday for a brief weekend getaway. While we hoped this would provide some rest and respite from work, daycare, and laundry, I had one singular goal today: Jaclyn and Miles were predictably thrilled about this. Still, once the Episode IX panel was over, we were free to … Continue reading Year 2, Day 46
