On May 20th our cousin Donald married Maggie who has already been part of the family for years now. They asked Isla to be their flower girl. Being a 2 year old, she was perfect at the rehearsal and then refused to walk down the aisle on the big day.
Don and Maggie had such a gorgeous day for their wedding and they planned quite the ceremony and reception. Castle Hill was such a gorgeous setting and you could tell how much fun they were having but also how in love they are. Congrats Don and Maggie!
I think our other favorite part of the weekend was getting to spend so much time with the Sette side of the family and seeing cousins from NJ.
On Saturday (5/7), we went to the New England Aquarium. Isla loved every minute of it. Unfortunately there were not enough purple fishies though.
Granary Tavern is quite kid-friendly!
Isla feeds the cats and lately she likes turning it into one big Easter egg hunt of sorts for them.
Some shots from Papa’s Retirement Party:
I asked her for a foot massage…
This was not my doing:
Finally enjoying some nice weather!
Papas are putting up the swing set! We’ll post some after shots of Isla enjoying this soon!
Perhaps we have an aspiring medical professional on our hands. Isla loves checking everyone (and everything including rocking bunnies and dolls) out with her doctor kit. It is so funny what she has picked up from recent trips to the doctor – now when she uses the otoscope, she also asks you to open your mouth and say ahhh so she can pretend to use the flashlight. When she uses the stethoscope, she asks you to take deep breaths by breathing in and out heavily.
Friday night Auntie Hannah stayed over and we found an awesome toddler park in Norton and then went to Winslow’s Farm. It is an animal sanctuary and you can roam among most of the animals who come up to you for lots of love. Isla’s favorite of course are the kitty cats. There are also some big ducks that she loves. This weekend the peacock was showing off with all of its feathers out.
