A visit from Grandma Smalberger

 Grandma Smalberger came to visit for a week and we had the most glorious time! She spoiled us totally, but even if we had never left the house it would have been wonderful having her here. We missed her before her plane ever got off the ground. Come back soon grandma!

showing off her garden

picnicking and playing at library park

a special trip to the coffee shop

it rained solidly for about 3 days while she was here, which was perfect for puddle jumping and searching for the perfect umbrella tree

we made a sign that was supposed to say "welcome grandma" but instead said "amdnarg emoclew" oops!

a perfect day for Reid Beach

dressing up for a girls night, just those of us above age 4 :)

Boston has some amazing architecture. It really is a gorgeous city.

Boston public library-can you spot me and Livi?

while we rode the Subway Livi sang excitedly "I love the subway, I love the subway!" It was so cute.

this is the perfect beach area. this rock pool was nice and warm and shallow-perfect for us.

Grandma went all the way in. crazy lady! BRRR.

after the Fairy House Handbook author read, we saw there was a fairy house area and all the things you would need to add to it outside the book store. it was totally awesome.
