Logan Kinei Nature Experience | Fox Bottom Area Trails, Truro

(aka Great Dunes Trail on AllTrails) It was the nicest day we have had since we moved to Cape Cod.  A high of 59 degrees, sunny, with a light breeze.  We had to get out into nature.  We went to Eastham Town Hall early to get our Presidential Primary Election vote cast, then we waited […]

Logan Kinei Nature Experience | Woods Walk at Highland Center

The Magical Sleepsuit

Let’s take a few minutes to talk about Baby Merlin’s Magical Sleepsuit.  Damn, this thing is magical indeed!  Weston is about 17 weeks old and he had his best night of sleep in his tiny little life the first night we put him in the Magical suit.  He had entered into a sleep regression for […]

Too Many People, Too Little Love

I’ve been contemplating this for a while now, and Kait and I have had many conversations about this. But it is something that I think about often, and I want to share it with you. So, here it is.  This is what I’ve been contemplating — I am going to write it how it plays […]
