Ice Cream Season | Personal

Everyone who knows me knows I LOVE ice cream!  Drew not so much, so anytime he suggests we get ice cream I am game.  This past Sunday after we shot an engagement session he said he’d go get us ice cream while I went to pick Prue up at my parent’s house.  Prue was napping when he brought the ice cream home, she was super excited to enjoy her ice cream while hanging out in our back yard.  I didn’t get to stay around, I was heading up to the fundraiser that Backstage Spa & Salon was having for my friend Danielle (more on that later).  I just love these portraits Drew captured of Prue.

Life with a 2 year old | Personal

I was answering a few emails in our office downstairs, for those of you who have been to our home you know the living room is not far away.  I can easily keep an eye on Prue and answer a few messages (or check in on facebook!).  It was really quiet and I should have known that Prue was up to something.  Usually she is running around the house and constantly coming into the office to ask me for “something” or to show me what she is doing.  I finally realized that it was extra quiet so I went out to check on her….this is what I found.

That is toothpaste that she has on her, not lotion, not flour TOOTHPASTE!  She for some reason thought it would be a good idea to use the toothpaste as lotion.  I didn’t know what to say to her so I walked away and got the camera.  That seemed like a good idea.  She just sat on the couch and didn’t say anything to me.  If you look closely at the detail shot you can see the tub of toothpaste tucked next to her leg.  The pillow was completely covered with toothpaste (as was Prue!).  I love how her little legs are crossed and she is just sitting there as if to say “it’s no big deal mom”.  After snapping a few photos it was off to the tub, toothpaste isn’t as easy to clean as I had hoped so she got a full on bath.

Visit to the New England Aquarium | Personal

On Monday Prue, myself, Auntie Mel & Auntie Alicia met up in Boston to go to the New England Aquarium.  Alicia had the great idea because the aquarium just opened up a new touch tank for sharks & rays (we didn’t touch any of them though because Prue being a 2 year old couldn’t keep her hands still enough for them to come near her).  It was also a perfect opportunity for us to take the train into Boston.  We pass under the train tracks in Lowell on our way to daycare so Prue has been excited to ride the “purple train” for awhile.  We met up with Mel at North Station and then walked over to the aquarium where we met up with Alicia.  We got to see the seals, the penguins, and lots of fish!!  My favorite was the sea turtle :)

Prue had lots of fun and even though it was “Marathon Monday” where we were in the city wasn’t too crazy.  It was lots of fun and I was wiped when we got home.

Waiting for the train, Prue decided to take her shoes off.  The other people that were waiting kept laughing at her.

She was so excited to see the train.  I’m glad we waited up above in the walkway so she could really see the train coming in.  

She had fun looking out the window and playing with her little princess toys.

Once we met up with Mel we had to go “park” her bike.  Prue of course wanted to ride her bike. Prue loved looking at the seals, though at first I think she was a little nervous.  She quickly realized they couldn’t get to her and then she relaxed.

Mel was waving her hands above the water which the penguins would follow.  They were trying to get the shadows that were made form Mel’s hand.  Prue thought this was really funny.

It was a great trip into Boston and lots of fun.
