boston

tim, jacob and kate at the boston commons.
speaks for itself, wouldn't you say?
wandering around beacon hill.
we had a fine day to stroll through the streets of boston - a day where one could entertain the idea of global warming. we followed the freedom trail, enjoying the sense of locals going about their business enmeshed with names and places from our grade school lessons. a self-paced tour we were able to browse through an interesting bookstore, stop for a pretzel, dawdle as we pleased. we watched as services ended at king's chapel, established in 1689. paul revere recast its bell in 1816 and it is still rung every sunday to announce services.

You've just made me crave a trip to Boston more than ever! That sweet little street, the fabulous chandelier...it looks like you had a wonderful, wonderful time!

Also, I'm so glad to hear I'm not the only one with blindingly white legs...it's so sad. I want so desperately to be a tanned goddess, but it will never happen. I'm content to know that I'm not alone, though! :)
