Lake Winnipesaukee

Last weekend Brad and I decided head up to Lake Winnipesaukee for the day. If you haven't heard of  Lake Winnipesaukee, the you probably haven't seen "What About Bob," and need to check out this clip. Unfortunately, we found out that the movie wasn't even filmed there. Lame. Regardless it was fun and the little beach towns were like something out of my childhood in the 90's. 
After spending the day soaking up the sun, eating more ice cream than we should ever consume, and having the best fish sandwich and fries (not to mention homemade potato salad and baked beans) that we have ever had, we decided that one day was not going to be enough and found a cottage to stay the night. It was seriously the best spontaneous trip. 

 It took some coaxing but Kai eventually liked the sand
 Yes, that is a SMALL ice cream!

 Dinner cruise boat
 The main part of Weirs Beach had bumper carts, and arcade, and lots of yummy food.
 The open beach.
 It was the weekend before the season started so we had the place to ourselves.
 This was before Kai learned to like the sand.
 Still getting used to it. 

 Best food ever. 

 Soaking up the sun.

 The boy and his daddy.

 We decided to go to the drive-in and see Iron Man 3 and Oz.
 Evidently, not many people come to the drive-in pre-season. 
 Our little drive-in nest.

 Because it was an impromptu trip we had to buy essentials (toothbrushes)
 This was the most random little cottage ever, but it worked. 
 Keeva loved the trip.

 Cutie patootie liked our trip too. 
 He gets some crazy bed hair
 I love this shaggy-haired boy
Beautiful, fun trip

Lately: May

May was a lovely month here in Boston. The weather has been kind of bipolar, but for the most part warm. Kai started walking, which is so fun! And we have been allowing him to explore the world more with his new-found freedom. He is becoming so animated and getting much better at communicating his needs and wants. Here is what we have been up to this month (WARNING: extreme photo-dumping to follow):
New shoes (because my husband is awesome)
 Hot messes late at night
 Playing at the museum of science 

 Messy eating (berry pancakes) 

 Kai being a freaking stud
 I'm in love with his hair
 More very messy eating (spaghetti). Sidenote: this kid can eat. I seriously have never seen a 1 year-old eat as much as Kai.

 Beautiful springtime
 Followed by not-so-beautiful springtime

 Cuter-than-crap posing
 Photo series taking on the computer

 Lots of being naked when it was hot.
And even more mess making now that he is walking everywhere.

May has been really good to us. We are even more excited now for summer to finally get here. I foresee  many trips to the park and lots of playing in the city. We have some trips from family and to family to look forward to as well. Yay for winter being over!
