My Mom and Dad (pick up your jaw off the ground - yes, my Dad came to visit) came to Boston the week after the 4th. The weather was exceptionally cool and windy when my Dad was here, but he thought it was great. My Dad saw all the sights of Boston and we wrapped up his visit with a nice dinner at Mooo. My Mom stayed for another week and I loved having her all to myself. Keep in mind, being the third daughter, I've never had her to myself before. We made sure to see some sights I'd never seen before, including the JFK Presidential Library and Museum, some of the mansions in Newport, RI and Castle Island, a former US Army post.
Melissa and her family came to visit for a week. It was a very action packed week! Duck Tour, Freedom Trail, Children's Museum, Aquarium, Red Sox game, beach and numerous dinners....we never stopped going! Kambree and Kanyon were great tourists! My favorite picture of Kambree is from the first hour she arrived in Boston. I had gone to Target to buy her another face mask-goggle thing. It happened to come with a snorkel and fins. As soon as I gave it to her, she immediately put it on - all of it. She must of noticed the elliptical machine the very next minute, as she started riding the elliptical with all her snorkel gear on. It was hilarious. For the rest of the weekend, anytime we spent at my apartment, Kambree spent on the elliptical. If only I was that committed...
The day the Kothmann's left, some Mason friends arrived. They should have ran into each other in the Austin airport, as they were boarding the plane the Kothmann's were getting off, my thanks to a certain someone who is chronically late, they missed each other (my Friends thankfully made the flight!) Scott, Kylie and Jeff came for some unprecedented Boston fun. And were the co-riders of the 11th Duck Tour.
Perhaps I can move onto Fall Fun now and be a little more timely with my posts.

Memorial Day weekend, the girls and I headed to Nantucket for the big Figawi weekend. The weekend consisted of sailboats, The Tavern, The Gazebo and Straight Wharf. We laughed a lot.
The following weekend, a friend from Mason came to visit. We kicked off the weekend by seeing Willie Nelson and Dave Matthews perform at Fenway Park. Great concert!
The following night, we drove to Mansfield to see The Man perform at the Comcast Center. George Strait was everything I hoped...and more. When he sang "Texas" and flashed pictures of bluebonnets, the Alamo and the Texas flag up on the jumbo-tron, I got chills. It was a pretty awesome moment to hear him singing about the homeland all the way up in New England. Loved it!!

What a long and painful day. 22 miles. Hills. Multiple hills. Little sidewalks. Highways. High traffic areas. Oh and hot, hot sun. We were cruisin' until we hit lunch. It was downhill after that. We all hurt. Knees, calves, thighs, and feet. Oh, the feet. Many, many blisters. It was not pretty.
Celebrating with other walkers.
Thank you to everyone who donated to our team and supported us in this cause. It was truly an amazing experience. And who knows - we just might walk again next year!

Sweet Baby Kanyon at 3 months.
Thankfully, he doesn't know how to make scary faces. Yet.

SONIC is FINALLY coming to the northeast. I can hardly believe it myself and I'm dizzy just from the thought of grilled cheeses and vanilla diet cokes WHEN.EVER.I.WANT.
Yay! Yay! Yay!
Mom and Dad and all the others that pick me up from the airport - No, this does not excuse you from making a bee line to Sonic as soon as me and my luggage are in the vehicle.
