What made Kaya decide to make her appearance last Sunday? Well, we can’t be sure, but perhaps our three hour hike and dog playtime did it. Laura, Tommy, Max, Piolina, and I decided to get some fresh air and check out the Ponkapoag Trail in the Blue Hills Reservation south of the city. We spent the whole afternoon hiking (well, more like strolling) and playing with the dogs in the water. Piolina (Laura’s rescue dog and recent immigrant from El Salvador) officially learned to swim and loved it. And I loved the fact that we came home and I went into labor a few hours later (hence the slightly delayed blog post).
