Went to get homemade ice cream and found a butterfly wing on the ground. The colors were so vibrant that I had to take a picture of it.

Just took her for a run at my mom's house. She got to run around and explore. She was so tired that she just laid there, shotgun, and put her head out the window.

This is the new spin type thing that the kids jump on. I guess the net is to hold them on the ride. Not like when I was a kid. I guess too many kids got hurt on the roundabout ride, but that was the fun part.

Well we had to say goodbye to room 105 at Bentley University. It is so depressing when a great week has to come to an end. Although I was up late every night, I had a blast getting to know the many great teachers I met. The 200+ steps a day was not as bad as I thought it would be.

It was Hollywood Night with Discovery and we had to dress as our favorite character from our favorite movie. Tally and I were dressed as Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy from Breakfast Club.

You can't make a stop in Boston without going to the only place where everybody knows your name. This was the fake one in Quincy Market. We went here on Saturday night and went to the real one Monday afternoon.

During our tour yesterday around Boston we stopped at Fenway Park. This statue is called, "Teammates". That is what we feel we are with Discovery.

Walking around the northern part of Boston in their "little Italy" when I came across a few doors that I was taller than. Just call me, "Alice".

This was an exit sign on the way to Boston. Everyone in the car started to laugh because all we saw was, "Willing to 69".

This is the first time I have seen 2 of my kids sharing a space where they are not fighting. Of course this isn't our house! I thought this was such a cute picture from our mini vacation.

I don't get it...
The sign says, "Do Not Enter" but it is the only entrance into the parking lot.....
Things that make you go hmmm....

Before I left for Boston I had to do my part for our neighborhood block party. I was in charge of doing raffles. I created 11 different baskets to raffle off.

Yes, folks.....the flowers are fake. They look good though. Why do I have fake flowers? We need to rip up the garden to fix a leak.

Happy Independence Day America!!! Well we didn't have the "normal" July 4th dinner of barbeque. My uncle cooked crabs for us. They were mighty tasty! The kids thought it was neat when Uncle Al picked up the live crabs.
