Kids had a blast at their first ski race yesterday. Elizabeth came in 9th out of the 28 girls in her age class and Paige was 15th out of 39 girls - pretty good for their first race ever. Here are more photos...

Weekend Outing: MIT Museum

on April 21st, 2014 at 11:55:35 AM

Head to the MIT Museum if you have a free afternoon. It's a perfect size museum for kids since you can see everything in about 90 minutes. They have a great Moving Parts exhibit going on now, including the piece below which doubles as a place for kids to chill for a few minutes. Our favorite exhibit was the Gestural Engineering: The Sculpture of Arthur Ganson. Go see it now before it moves on - well worth the trip. And while you're in the area, stop by Flour cafe and bakery. Everything that comes out of their ovens is delicious.
