Boston By the Water

I’m back with a few more pictures from our afternoon in Boston (I shared the first half earlier this week here). I don’t have much else for you today – except maybe one thought on gratitude. I was reading through old notes this morning and came across something that struck a cord (I’m not entirely sure why, because at the moment I do feel like I have so many things to be grateful for). It went something like this:

You might ask, “What do I have to be grateful for when my life is falling apart?” Well, our gratitude shouldn’t be proportional to the number of blessings we can count. Being grateful isn’t what we do after our problems are solved – that is so short sided. How much on life do we miss out on if we are waiting for the rainbow to thank God there is rain?Gratitude should be an attitude, and when we cultivate it, we will find ourselves happier in any and every circumstance. 


^”really mom, I had to get out of my stroller for pictures, AGAIN?”

^sticking out his tongue already (for a few weeks this was his response every time I would go to kiss him #usingtonguealready)

^looking where I’m pointing is something Linc has just started picking up on (and clearly did not get at the time of this picture a few weeks ago…) 
^I kinda love that we have matching watches šŸ™‚ 
^Men that push strollers are my kinda thing (and by men, I mean Ben).

^I can’t wait for the day we live close to the ocean again.

Boston, we love you. 
I also love when Lincoln takes naps. We won’t count how many times this post has been interrupted this afternoon by a baby refusing to do what his mama knows is best šŸ˜‰ Its a good thing he’s cute.
