Mike has been bugging me to get an edging shovel forever. This past weekend he finally bought one and we edged out all our flower beds and put down new mulch. It looks great!

Apparently our house was on the local news Sat night and Sunday am. A few friends told us they saw pics of the front and back yard during a news story about the housing market. I have emailed WMUR to hopefully get the link to the video but so far I have heard nothing.

House Update

This week we had our third showing on the house. It was a little after 10 am on Tuesday when Mike called me from work and said our Realtor had texted him to see if someone could by and look at the house at 1130. That left me, a very untidy house, a sink full of dishes, 2 kids that needed entertaining and a little over an hour to clean everything up. It was pretty crazy but we got it all done, or most of it. Since the immaculate house look was getting us nowhere anyway we decided to take it down a notch and clean a bit less and see if that would get us anywhere. Seems to be working. We had our second open house today. Last time no one showed up at all. Today ( with a clean but not immaculate house) we had 4 people come by. Well technically it was 3 since one was the local news anchor looking for a story about the housing market and buyers. No was here at the time though so he didn't stay long. Still waiting for our first offer........

South Boston

Boston Children's Museum

This was our first time at the Children's Museum. We all had lots of fun. What a great Museum and easy to get to from NH too. We bought a multi pass for several Museums that's good for a year for $70. Looking forward to using it again and again. Gabe and Isaac and Matt and Mk went too ( actually it was all their idea) and we tagged along. We brought a picnic lunch and ate outside on the Harbor. The weather couldn't have been better. Sunny and 65. After lunch the kids were tired so we popped Israel in the baby carrier and Keira in the stroller and walked around South Boston. We rarely go to the city so it was a real treat to be able to walk around. I love the sights and sounds of Boston.

Israel's page/ 6 1/2 months!

He is developing a personality and keeping us all laughing. He is teething pretty bad so we have been getting creative with tething toys ( aka cantalope and pickles). Hew clearly doesn't seem to like it much!

Odiorne Point

Mike had a rare day off yesterday ( Thank you Patriots Day!) so since all house projects are currently banned until we know if we are moving we decided to spend the day at the beach. Odiorne Point is a seacoast state park is about 40 min from our house. It has an awesome playground right on the water and beautiful rocky beaches for walking around ( no swimming at this State Park). We brought a picnic lunch and made a day of it. It was in the high 50's and sunny but super windy ( hence the hats.) Israel got extremely angry that he wasn't allowed to eat the rocks from the beach so we had to give him a cold, salty pickle to chew on ( hoping his teeth show up soon as he is a bear lately). It was a fun day and we came home and grilled steaks for dinner. Looking forward to being able to get out and do some more fun trips now that its getting warmer out.
