Hiking & Drawing at Phillips Academy, Andover, MA

With Evan’s open-heart surgery cancelled, Kendra and I have suddenly found ourselves with a lot of unplanned free time this week. Her mom, Jane, flew up here to help take care of Addison and Kate while we were in the hospital, and is with us until January 4th. Having spent the last three weeks in […]

Ringing in 2014: Outdoor Fun in New Hampshire

When it comes to New Year’s Eve, Kendra and I prefer quiet celebration, so when our friends Meg and Marcy invited us to spend the holiday in a cottage in the woods of New Hampshire’s White Mountain National Forest, we jumped at the opportunity. Meg booked us two cabins at Sunnybrook Cottages, a small, family […]

Mommy, Addie, and Mama in the Hammond reservation in Andover, MA

Goodbye 2012, Hello 2013!

2012 was an exciting year for us. We took Addie overseas for the first time in February, along with 18 of our inner-city students, spending time in both London and Paris. The highlights of our trip were Warwick Castle, the Tower of London, and the Louvre. Addie proved to be a great world-traveler, and in addition […]

The Eiffel Tower, Paris, France

Farewell London, Bonjour Paris!

This morning we left our hotel before dawn and headed to St. Pancras  Station. Before we boarded the Eurostar train for Paris, we took the kids across the street to King’s Cross Station to visit Platform 9 and 3/4! I think I was just as excited as the kids to see this Harry Potter landmark. […]

Adventures In Dining Out With A Toddler

Tonight Kendra and I decided we were in the mood for Indian food. When I lived in Boston, good Indian food could be found in every neighborhood. Out in the burbs, it’s not as easy to find.

The Peddler's old smoker

The Peddler

Tonight Boris sent us on a date to The Peddler Steak House, “Greenville’s most unique dining experience since 1969.” I can’t even remember the last time Kendra and I went out to dinner, just the two of us. The building, a 100 year-old stone and wood construction, was beautiful. It reminded me a bit of […]

The Fates Sent Me a Beacon

It’s not often a post on my Facebook news feed is as applicable to my life as one from NPR the other day. However, yesterday there was a post about food joints that politicians go to when campaigning in South Carolina. It caught my eye because we are actually IN South Carolina at the moment. […]

The Good Day Cafe in North Andover, MA.

The Good Day Cafe – Hooray!

Addison woke us up early today, so Kendra and I decided to take her for a walk to a fairly new café in our neighborhood – The Good Day Cafe. I was psyched to go check the place out, as yesterday Kendra brought me one of their cappuccinos and a yogurt parfait. Given I am […]

Cafe Verde

Today I met up with Kendra and Addison at a fairly new cafe in Lawrence, MA – Cafe Verde. They were hanging out with our friend Meg, and Meg’s mom. Kendra had already eaten when I got there, but the food looked too good to resist, so I ordered a Croque-Madame sandwich – a grilled […]

Grits and Groceries

Kendra and I are down in South Carolina for a few days over our Christmas break. Overall, good times! Today we visited her Omi in little Due West. On the way home, Boris took us to a local eatery, Grits and Groceries, in Belton, South Carolina. I loved it! Despite being in the middle of […]
