I had the amazing opportunity to go to Boston with my Grandpa, Mom, Sister, Aunt and cousins. We stayed with my Aunt Marjie and her family who lives in Boston. It was fabulous vacation and a trip for a lot of firsts.

What is a trip to Time Square without a picture with SpongeBob?

The Statue of Liberty was fabulous. I loved every bit of it.
(Does that shirt scream tourist or what?)

My first taxi ride. We arrived at our hotel at 11:30 pm to find out that they had booked us two rooms with 1 King size bed in each. That would have been fine if we didn't have 9 people! So they found us a close by hotel that would accommodate us, thus the taxi ride. I was really dissapointed that it wasn't a yellow cab but I think we had a memorable experience when the driver decided to back up on the freeway instead of wait through traffic.

My favorite part of the trip to New York was seeing the Broadway musical "Wicked". It was so spectacular and the talent was unbelievable. I Loved It!!!

After our fast and furious trip to New York we were now able to enjoy the beauty and historical richness of Boston. It is such an amazing city with such rich historical background. I really did love everything about it. This picture of me strangling the duck is at Boston Commons where the story "Make way for the ducklings" was written about.

This is me and my beautiful sister at Revere Beach.

This was one of my favorite places that we went. Walden Pond. It was so peaceful and serene. I could definitely see how someone could be a recluse there like my new boyfriend was.

Me and my boyfriend Henry David Thoreau. Ahhhh so romantic.


I was trying to look intellectual on the campus of Harvard but I think I look more confused than anything else. It really is a gorgeous campus.

This is my family at the Sleepy Hollow cemetery. I found out half way through our tour that it isn't "the" Sleepy Hollow from the story that one is in New York. After that it lost some of its eerieness but it was still cool to see authors headstones, like Louisa May Alcott, and Emerson, Hawthorne, and Thoreau. It was super cool. It was in my favorite town in Boston; Concord. It was so cute and quaint. I loved it.

The Boston Temple.....Gorgeous!!

I love lighthouses. This was in Cape Cod. Oh how beautiful the Cape is. The water was FREEZING, but we got in anyway. We drove out to Province the city farthest on the Cape, that was quite the experience. It was all so beautiful.
We were going going all the time. We fit everything in that we wanted to do and see. I loved it all and am excited to someday go again and take Ryan and maybe the kids.
