Skywatching in Massachusetts

Trip to bookstore

Over the 4th of July weekend, TJ's mom needed a particular book to prepare a lesson plan for her class.  The libraries were closed so she drove to the bookstore while I admired the scenery and sky from the passenger seat:

  On theTurnpike

Crossing over the Connecticut River

The sky could still be seen from inside the bookstore.


At one month old, Tyler wasn't very interested in the books.  He did enjoy the car and stroller rides.

To see more skies, visit Skywatch Friday hosted by Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy and Sylvia.

Beautiful Road Photography. Sometimes books put me to sleep, too. Car rides always do. :-)

You can see sky from inside the bookstore, you can also see it inside a book.

A beautiful sky.

More green and more water than you get to see in Arizona.
It's never too early to get TJ used to bookstores and libraries.
I wonder what your grandfather would have thought about e-books. He liked technology but I think he liked his printer's ink more.

Cute baby...my newest grandson will be 3 months old on July 28th already...that picture made me miss him!

Barb said...

TJ looks a little bored by the story books- maybe he stayed up to late the night before reading! Hope you had a wonderful visit.

Gaelyn said...

Nice to be a passenger and be able to take pics along the way. TJ might have to get just a bit older before he appreciates literature.

Books don't do babies much good anyway... unless they want to eat the pages out of them :)

Those are gorgeous blue skies, I really like the first shot. Tyler looks like he could care about all the books.

Oh TJ is so adorable! Diane, the blue blue sky is wonderful. I think you are also enjoying the cooler temperature there right?

Looks like a great day for driving and admiring the show up in the sky.

I like the composition and the view point of the third, window photo. Tyler looks cute with the bookstore as background. Nice captures!

Lindy MacDuff said...

Gorgeous sky shots, and very sweet capture of Tyler napping.

jeannette said...

Your first shot of the sky is beautiful! Somehow it doesn't surprise me that your daughter is a teacher -she must have inherited some of her mother's skills:)
So fun to enjoy your grand baby!

Splendid Little Stars said...

aawww...cute little Tyler! What interesting skies!

Ann said...

Your first photo looks like the cotton wool clouds I had, except you had blue sky, and my sky was covered with it.

How many books have you bought for him? Books are the best gifts. You don't have to buy baby books.
