Happy Friday, all of you lovely people! I can't believe that this our last Friday of summer. Summer goes by quickly each year, but for some reason this one went super fast. John starts first grade on Tuesday and will be going on the bus this year and Conor starts preschool in October. This mom is getting teary eyed just thinking about all these changes. I've so enjoyed lazy days with my guys - cuddling on the couch, building drippy castles, exploring nature. So we're trying to pack these last moments of summer with tons of fun.
The other night we went over to Hull, a neighboring seaside town. We had a fantastic dinner at Hull's Kitchen. This brightly colored yellow beach hut faces the glorious view of Nantasket Beach.

The fish tacos were delicious. Lightly breaded fish topped with crema and guacamole on a corn tortilla.
Our next stop was the Paragon Carousel. This particular carousel has been operating at Nantasket Beach for over 80 years. It was built in 1928 by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company. It is one of a few "grand" carousels in the United States and reminds all of the Golden Age of Hull, when the shoreline was teaming with glittering rides, a roller coaster and a board walk.
My boys, especially Conor, enjoyed a ride on this historic carousel. I wish you could have heard his laughter:
