I'm loving living in this city more are more with each new activity and experience.
I got just a 'little' turned around the other night trying to drive to the temple from school. Little unknown fact, the iphone doesn't like to find the temple when you plug it into the gps. Excellent. But at least getting lost in Boston means you get views like this!

So, Patriot's Day was yesterday.
These horses received a police escort as they walked through town as part of the Battle at Lexington Reenactment. I just happened to get off the T from school at exactly the right moment as they walked down my street.

Boston Marathon!

So inspiring to be here for this awesome / famous event.
I ran from my house (just so I could feel a part of the heat stroke event --- 85 degrees --- yuck) and met up with my friends. We cheered on another friend as she ran. This was the last mile of the race and pretty much everyone looked like they wanted to die.

Then, because we ourselves worked up such an appetite watching all these people run, we went and bought burgers and sipped on some chocolate frapps on the grass as we watched the "show."


Amy invited some lovely ladies over and we all helped create a little Easter Sunday meal.

Mama and daddy sent me some Harry & David pears for my 'basket' so I added a few little slices of heaven atop my candied-pecan-poppy-seed salad.

Spring has Sprung

And these happy guys are all around the city in yards and medians.
Mel recently bought herself a 'big-girl' / typical father's day(?) purchase of her own...an outdoor grill, which I think is hysterical yet amazing. This has inevitably lead to many a BBQ already. ~Bless you spring and all the outdoor joy you bring~
