Boston In Pictures

Here are a few more photos from our trip to Boston ... I know looking at other folk's vacation pics isn't high on a lot of lists, so you can move along is you necessary ... no obligation here!  Have a great day!

  1. HAHAHA! Those were great pics! I'm a BIG history buff! I've read autobiographies on nearly every president! So, with that said, did you know that our second president John Adams was a lawyer at the time of the Boston Massacre and represented the British soldiers in that massacre?

    I'm sure you knew that but it's one of my favorite fun facts about him and the pic above just reminded me of it!

  12. Great pictures! I hope you can go back next year if you want to. You guys did it right on all fronts (I love cannoli).

    Yes, I am from Columbia (I'm writing from there now)--HS was Hickman High. My parents are both Tigers and I have a grad degree from MU (went to Rice U. undergrad). I love MO. I just went for a fabulous 15-mile run with hills and green stuff everywhere (not nearly as much green stuff in CO). Did you go to college here?

  13. The organization needed for that race is monumental. Seeing the photos of the giant tent, the giant screen and the giant table filled with water cups puts it all in perspective. Boston is huge!

  15. I love your pics! It literally is like looking at pics of my own Boston vacation from 2002 all over again, haha Glad you enjoyed Fenway Park, that place is awesome! And the north end for italian food is great! When I was walking around there, I literally heard an italian guy standing next to a Cadillac say "fget about it!" it was like straight out of a movie! haha

  17. Loved this! We also hit the north end so Spike could carb-load Sunday night and the line to Mike's was down and around the corner. We didn't get a canoli but next year we'll have to! Congrats again on a great race and it was nice, briefly, meeting you! :)
