Trip to Boston

Last October we took a trip over to Boston to spend a few days since Grandpa Rex and Grandma Diane and Uncle Matt and our adopted Uncle Jesse (hehe - I have to call him that because he's like family, but I always thing of Uncle Jesse from Dukes of Hazard and it makes me chuckle, I'm not sure Jesse likes this - sorry) were also going to be there with Russell's family. We had a great weekend checking out historic sites and enjoying each others company.

Above pictures just waiting for the train into downtown Boston and verifying our plans. James seems to be the only one noticing I have the camera out.I wish I could remember all of the names of these places. Everyone else seems to, but for some reason history facts just don't stay in my brain for more than a few minutes. So I won't try and commentary most of these pics unless I feel and explanation is necessary.

We highly recommend the Barking Crab (the only reason I remember it's name is because its in the next photo ;p ) -we go there everytime!

These two are so cute together - two peas in a pod!

I think we were stopped here waiting while Eric ran in and picked up lunch for our picnic. 1 ipod and 1 DS kept everyone entertained-amazing! I do love history despite my not being able to store the facts in my memory for long, but my favorite part of this trip was the family bonding. We had a good time together!

Could they be any cuter? I think we have some future soldiers here.

Grandma's are the best!

My kids don't generally get snuggly with just anyone. Uncle Russell is one of their favorites! I have great uncles that I have great childhood memories of. I'm glad my kids do too!

Soccer Season 2011

This is a little late, but I still wanted to post these photos. This first one was just too cute not to capture. That's one of Melanie's first games in the background. She's in 7th grade now and played for the modified team at school.
I didn't do so hot on taking pictures this year. The above 2 are all I got of Melanie's team and these one's below were at the end of the season, just a pick-up game on a Saturday where Melanie and David joined in and the coaches/Dad's played too. Eric was the coach for Melissa and James' team.
