Springtime Weekends

Trying to get some more pictures up while I still can. Randi, Scott, and Julia came to visit Memorial Day weekend. We spent Saturday walking around downtown, including Faneuil Hall, the Holocaust Memorial, and the Common and Gardens. We hopped on the T over to Kenmore to take in some of the atmosphere before the Mets/Red Sox game, and then grabber dinner at Boston Beer Works while we watched the game. We got back to JP after dinner just in time to see the momentous game-changing home run that Omir Santos launched against Papelbon, much to the chagrin of Dennis Eckersley.

We stayed close to home on Sunday, splitting our time between playing some Rock Band, watching the Mets, and grilling some chicken and hot dogs.

Check out the pictures of the Marshalls’ visit to Boston.

Today, after walking to the mechanic to pay the bill on a bajillion dollars of car repairs, we headed over to Home Depot to pick up a pegboard and cable ties of various sizes. Back at home, we took all of our network electronics—cable modem, wifi router, VOIP device, and NAS—and strapped them to the pegboard. We included a power strip and stuck the whole thing out of sigh behind our TV stand. (This is all originally inspired by Declutter Your Desk, which I’ve been jealous of ever since I first saw it a couple of years ago.)

One step closer to having a baby’s room instead of an office!

Remember when? Fall '08 in Jamaica Plain

Ah yes, I remember it fondly. The weather grew cooler and the nights gained a bit of a chill. College kids flocked back to Boston and the economy collapsed. And, yes, Lynn’s belly was devoid of human cells not strictly her own (at least, as far as we knew at the time).

Over the course of a few weeks, Lynn and I got out to admire the foliage a few times. We took a couple of trips down the block to the Arboretum, and we also went with my mom over to Houghton’s Pond at the Blue Hills Reservation. Enjoy some pictures from back in the fall of ‘08.
