Wordless Wednesday: Winter After Spring

The weather was still fairly mild near the end of March. Josh and I went to the zoo one day, and the animals were pretty happy.

And Easter turned out to be pretty nice.

But April seems to be having an identity crisis.

And the little man and I have been sick.

But at least that didn't happen until after my good friend's birthday celebration weekend.

Cheers to a good week, everyone!

Wordless Wednesday: Back in the Ocean State

The weather has been unseasonably warm here in New England, and many people have been taking advantage of it, getting outside to enjoy the fresh air and local scenery.  I took a hike a couple of weekends ago to a place by the bay called Rome Point. There were no seals (which I only recently learned like to hang out here) but the view did not disappoint.

In other news, Joshua had a chance last week to meet some of the Providence Bruins (our favorite hockey team) players. He had an absolute blast, and the guys were fantastic with him. Josh even had a cameo on the local news. His autograph item this year was a Bruins Mr. Potato Head that had been sitting on my desk at work for several years. I'm glad it was put to good use!

Wordless Wednesday: Colorful Colorado

Last week, I took an unexpected trip to Colorado. My grandfather had passed away, so I flew out with my dad and stepmom to be with my grandmother and some other family. I've only ever been there in the summer, so it was nice to see the mountains in all of their snowy glory. It's so beautiful out there, and it was go good to visit some of the family that I rarely get to see. Oh, and the green chili was absolutely delightful!

Wordless Wednesday: Welcome to 2016

I can't believe it took me until mid-February for a blog post, but here I am! I was hoping things would calm down after the Christmas rush, but they didn't. There is always so much to do and issues to handle, but that is life for you. Better to be busy and enjoying life and learning all the lessons we need to learn, I suppose!

Here are a few highlights from the end of 2015, and from 2016, so far:

We celebrated New Year's Eve at Gillette Stadium for the Winter Classic Alumni hockey game.

It was Josh's first time at the big stadium, and his first outdoor hockey game.

In January, Josh had the chance to skate in between periods of a Providence Bruins game.

We finally got some snow in February!

I took a bunch of photos while Josh was at his art class this past weekend.

Josh's painting was one of eight selected from his school to be featured in a collection of children's art at a local gallery. He's been going through a lot of issues with his self-esteem lately, and I think this really gave him a boost. His picture is the one on the bottom right, "Starry Night." Of course, Woody had to come, too, since Toy Story is his latest obsession. We'll break this one out when he's working for Pixar someday! :)
