Our Day

Matching skirts are the perfect way to start the day.  

Emma had a doctors appointment today, and on the way we passed the Wayside Inn Grist Mill.  In the wake of all the rain we had, I had to take a picture and share it with all of you.  Keep in mind, that there is not usually this much water flowing through at this point in the year.  

And I figured since we would be passing the Martha Mary Chapel and the Little Red Schoolhouse I should take pictures of those too. The Martha Mary Chapel was in the movie Ghosts of Girlfriends Past.  If you saw the movie it should look familiar.  

And this is the schoolhouse that inspired the nursery rhyme Mary Had a Little Lamb. 

And finally, Longfellow's Wayside Inn. 
We love the Wayside Inn.  Our family has had many wonderful meals there. 

As we were making our way to the pediatrician we encountered this:

It made our 20 minute commute to the doctor turn into an hour long journey.  
And the trip home was no better.  
It took us an hour and a half to get back.  
Not the way I had thought we would be spending the bulk of our day. 
Tomorrow we have big plans to spend lots of time outside!
Have a wonderful night, friends. 
As always, we'll see you tomorrow. 


  1. Are pink tutus not the best thing ever?!?!? So much fun. I am having such a blast raising two girls, and see that you are too! What a bond they have. I think they are so blessed to have one another. What fun!

  2. Drew and I had our rehersal dinner at the Wayside Inn! It was perfect.

    This flooding is crazy, isn't it?
    Oh,'s an adventure, for sure :)

  3. Pink tutus are the best! The girls saw them in Carter's and had to have them! It was the first time Emma had an opinion on an article of clothing. fabulous! I am having the best time raising these two! Now if I could just get Dave to agree to one more!

    We love the Wayside Inn! What a fabulous place to have a rehersal dinner. Dave and I "discovered" it after we were married or we for sure would have loved to have had our festivities there. We got married in Belmont and had our reception at The Hawthorne Hotel in Salem. Such a great day, now if only it had not been 100 degrees! :)

    This flooding is insane! I am not sure if route 20 is open yet or not. Poor Dave has been having super long commutes to work (in Weston) because of it. And on top of all the other craziness of Thursday, we heard, again after the fact, that President Obama was in town. They had landed the Presidential Helicopter at our little dinky airport! Who knew?! Crazy!
