Boston!!!!! (a work trip)

A view from my Hotel- Boston is a very beautiful city with lots of brick buildings! I love brick! And a TON of history!
P.S. The hotel we stayed at was the same as the Craiglist Killer Hotel! Scary!

Alison, a co-worker, eating a lobster.

Some of the people I work with... by the way I went to a conference but didn't take any pictures of the conference. Why would I do that?

Cheers! The actual bar that the show was designed after. This is the real thing!

The site of the Boston Massacre and the balcony where the US Constitution was read to the people for the very first time!

Bell In Hand Tavern- the oldest tavern in America

We were in the North end (aka the Italian end) of Boston and I had never had one of these.. I can't remember what they are called now but it was good.

The Old North Church where the signal lanterns of Paul Revere were displayed in the steeple... anyone remember there History class???

Very cool, old cemeteries-buried here is Sam Adams, Paul Revere, John Hancock and Franklin's wife

The Boston Monument

Finally, me at Harvard square in Cambridge. Apparently it is good luck to touch the gold shoe (later I found out from a Harvard alum that at freshman initiation the boys have to pee on the shoe-..... awesome)

Good times with friends and sports....

Pisey, Rebecca, Nate and I decided to go to a LA Clippers vs Portland Trailblazers Basketball Game at the Staples Center. We cheered for the Blazers and represented Oregon!

We had terrible seats but Pisey brought his binoculars. :-)

Good friends! We love them!

Then we went to an Angels vs. Mariners Baseball game with Josh & Lauren, Kyle & Lahela, and us... first we had to stop at In N Out for some scrumptious cheap lunch!

The Angels baseball stadium...
Our seats weren't that bad. It was a pretty field.

Ken Griffey Jr at bat... no homeruns for him that day
Kyle (left end) was very sad because the Mariners lost badly!!
Our friends...Fun times with good friends. We love them too!

My Birthday Weekend (2 months ago)...

The crew on my birthday (brother Jon, Jo, mama, and hubby).

My mama came to visit for my birthday- yay!

Below- some "drunk" man took a picture of us at dinner and thought it looked ok. ??? Right... are you dizzy yet?
We went to a Japanese restaurant and they made me wear a wig when they sand to me... yikes.

My beautiful flowers that my wonderful husband gave me!

My mom and I went to the Huntington Library/Gardens while she was here. She was in garden heaven!
P.S. anyone think that the bamboo shoots behind us resemble the ones in Lost??
