We went to get a pumpkin and you picked one that was as big as you. They also had animals like donkeys and chickens to look at. You just liked pulling the wagon around. You did let daddy pull it once it was fully loaded with pumpkin and kids.

Carol & Mary Rose

On our last day at Gammie and Pop's house Carol and Mary Rose came to see you. You instantly took to Carol and took her hand to the playroom. You two played with the cash register and hair dryer.

Patton park

The next day we went to Patton park with Gammie and Hailey, which was a really cool playground I read about. You and Hailey had tons of fun swinging together on a giant net swing. You also loved the motorcycle on springs and kept asking Hailey to sit with you on it.

Smolok Farm

We all went to Smolok farm for a hay ride through the apple orchards. Disney characters got on the ride and gave out treats like cookies and donuts. They also had tons of animals to look at. You liked the baby deer the best. We went on a wagon tractor ride too.

Birthday Party

We were lucky enough to go to Emma's 4th birthday party. You acted like such a big boy sitting at the table eating pizza and drinking out of a cup. You ran around the place like a wild man.


The next day we went and had pictures taken of all the grandkids in pajamas. You also got to play at the mall play area and go to Friendly's. You had fun taking pictures of Hailey across the dinner table. You also enjoyed going down the slides in funny ways.

Bike rides and Endicott Park

That afternoon Hailey and Emma came over to ride bikes in the driveway, which might have been the most fun you had that week. You loved the two person trike. After that we went to Endicott park where we saw animals and a playground.


A week went by fast at Grandpa and Nana's house and now it was time to spend a week with Gammie and Pop. Our first morning you helped Gammie make Mickey pancakes while watching the lawn mower crew.

Play date

We had another play date with Lily. You guys played with toys and read books. You also played in the backyard running and playing ball.

Train ride

Grandpa wanted to take you for a train ride knowing how much you like playing with them. We went on the commuter rail from Stoughton to Canton on a double decker. I'm guessing by the amount you keep talking about it that you enjoyed it.

Children's musuem

The next day we went to the children's museum with Grandpa and Auntie Sam. You liked all the tubes to put golf balls through the best. But the huge train table was a close second.

Play ground and coupons

The next afternoon we met Carrie and Lilly at the playground that I used to go to as a kid. We had a blast. You also spent the morning learning one of Nana's passion cutting coupons.


The next day we went to the Franklin park zoo with Grandpa and Nana. Your favorite animal that you still talk about was the gorilla. You enjoyed carrying around your own camera and pretending to take pictures.

Auntie Sam, Alex, and Summer

The next day Auntie Sam and Alex brought over their dog Summer who become your instant buddy. You loved throwing the ball for her in the backyard and playing chase.

Grandpa and Nana

Now it was time to bring Daddy to the airport and continue our journey to Grandpa and Nana's house for the next week and a half. You wasted no time getting comfy there and reading books and making coffee.

Imagine that

We ended the wedding weekend by meeting your cousins at a fun play place. You loved playing trains the most. The climbing area was a big hit too. Of course you just liked the attention of Hailey and Emma the best.


We flew home for you to be a ring bearer in Kate's wedding. You did a great job and exceeded all of our expectations. Not only did you walk down the aisle with a smile, but you looked so handsome doing it. After the ceremony and pictures Gammie took you back to the house for dinner, bath, and bed.

Rainforest Cafe

The next day we met Auntie Christie and your cousins Hailey, Emma, and Lucas at Rainforest cafe. You loved running around the restaurant and checking out all the animals. And your cousins couldn't have been more excited to see you after waiting months talking about this day.

Gammie and Pop's tractor

The first day we got to Gammie and Pop's house you quickly discovered the tractor and wasted no time going for a ride. The rest of the visit you climbed on it and wanted to be near it all the time.


We got you your own suitcase for the airplane, which was the cutest thing ever. You dragged it around the whole airport and even the next 3 weeks. It was packed full of toys for the plane and you did great the whole day playing.
