Family Day in Boston

For the past 10 years, I’ve been a member of an amazing organization: the Greater Boston Concierge Association. And every year, they provide a day for the concierge and their families to enjoy the sites of Boston. Since David works on the weekend, I decided to partake in this years events. My mom and sister-in-law accompanied Eleanor and I on a Duck Tour, lunch in Faneuil Hall, and the New England Aquarium.

Eleanor did great during the Duck Tour, but became a little overwhelmed at the aquarium. 😦 We were able to get in a great afternoon though. The weather was absolutely perfect, and it was the best day to be a tourist in my own city.

It’s Myrtle the Turtle! She’s 80 years old and over 500 pounds. She’s lived at the New England Aquarium since 1970.

Sunday was a great day: went for a 5K run, grocery shopped, and cleaned the whole house. Now it’s time for another work week. 🙂

How was your weekend?

Nothing beats the lovely views at the Skywalk Observatory at the Prudential Center. Last night was so crystal clear that you could see all the way to the mountains.

Prior to that, we enjoyed bites from PF Changs, Crazy Dough’s Pizza, Sweetgreen, Towne, Wagamama, California Pizza Kitchen, and Coldstone Creamery. Everything was SO good, although I am partial to the pizza from Crazy Dough’s. 😛

After the scavenger hunt (which was hosted by the Prudential Center and Where Boston Magazine), we reconvened at the Observatory and enjoyed more drinks and lovely desserts.

Thank you again for an amazing night! If you are ever in Boston, a trip to the Skywalk is a must. 🙂

The Last of the Craziness

For now at least. 🙂

Between the reunion on June 4th and the wedding on June 10th our weekends have been jam packed. And this past weekend was no exception. Thankfully things will be quiet until Fourth of July festivities. And I totally just realized that the holiday is two weeks away! The months are flying by.

Friday

Before the end of the work day my boss asked if I wanted tickets to the Red Sox game courtesy of the visiting team. I called up David and he was willing to come in to the city if it meant so much to me. 😉

We were four rows from the field and right next to the Mariners dugout. Very cool! Unfortunately they lost, but it was still a fun time. Especially Big Papi’s 2-run home run!

Saturday

No-picture day but still quite busy. I worked on cleaning the house in the morning before we went over to David’s parent’s house to celebrate birthdays and holidays in May and June. Lunch was pizza and meatball subs with a frosted chocolate chip bundt cake that I made for dessert.

We hung out for a few hours before heading home. I took a 20 minute nap before we headed back out towards Boston to see a friend of mine in a play in Jamaica Plain. It was The Sisters Rosensweig at the Footlight Club; celebrating its 139th season! My friend John was excellent in it. The dialogue could get a bit bogged down with simple conversation, but he was able to bring some fun and laughter to the scenes. It was such a pleasure getting to see him perform! Makes me want to get back on to the stage. 😉

Sunday

Allll day was spent putting up the remaining walls in the garage. Thankfully it’s all done! Now we wait for the electrician. And we have an excavator coming this week to grade the yard; time to bring everything in to the garage!

And a Happy Father’s Day to my wonderful dad, Mark. 🙂
