Boston and a birthday.

Monday, April 12, 2010

On Saturday, I went in to Boston to meet my good friend from high school.  The sun was shining and there were so many gorgeous flowers speckling all of Beacon Hill.  I couldn't stop snapping pictures.  Where I live, there's a lot of maple, oak, pine... those provide you with two colors: green and brown.  The reds, yellows, blues, oranges, and pinks that were soaking up the sun were definitely picture-worthy.  They were just as happy as I was to have sun shining after all this rain we've had.  It was lovely.  We stopped by BoYo (I'm trying to recapture my Pinkberry experiences.  Did I?  No.  Sadly, it's not the same.  Red Mango, you're next.), ducked into Liberty Hotel quickly (I will stay there one day!), and finished off with some treats from Tealuxe.

And then, it was William's birthday!  I haven't told you, but you've probably already discovered, that we celebrate a lot of birthdays this time of year.  It's true.  Including Gracie (as if I even have to write her, obviously we'd include Gracie), we have four in the span of about two weeks.  So, now we are three down, and one to go.  Here's the birthday boy who is now TEN.

His birthday-in-bed breakfast complete with a W out of bacon strips.  That clever Dad of his.

Probably less pleased about this purchase.  It's one of those Mom-pleasing gifts, however.   And check out the  happy teenager in the back!

Lindsey is riveted.


  1. Happy Birthday to such a sweet boy!
    Love his gifts, he reminds me of my son.

    Anyway...I love the way you write! And I too love that green door you have in this post. It's on my walk to work and I took pictures of it during Christmas time when it had a gorgeous wreath on it. Wish I could include pictures in my comments :)
