Flower Power & Ice Cream

Yesterday during our morning trip to Newburyport, we were in search of a sunhat for Maebh.  Her head is in the middle – too big for 0-6 month hats and too small for 12 months.  The Black Dog store, which I LOVE all their stuff, didn’t have anything that worked.  They did give us a balloon for Soren, but after about 5 minutes, it was off in a high tree! 😦   We did find a store called Children’s Orchard, which I bought her 3 little hats.  They were very nicely priced at $4. each.  Two were used and one was brand new.  At check out, they had the large flower and headbands for $2.99, couldn’t resist!!!  She’s so damn cute with it on.

There we also bought Soren these funny Baseball Sunglasses.   Naturally his little button nose doesn’t exactly keep them up, but it was more for the fun of them than the actual usage of them.

Oh and the ice cream was a big bonus.  We stopped at White’s Ice Cream Farm on the way home.  It’s on the Rowley/Ipswich border.   Great tasting ice cream!!

Author: Stars Stripes and Mayonnaise

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
